On May 27th the Zumiez Couch Tour kicks off their 2013 tour in Portland. There has been a few changes in venue compared to the last few years. Most notably, there is no Baltimore stop. The new line up does however still do a good job of representing the entire country. From New York to Portland, they have America covered. If someone is hungry enough to get in there with a short drive they can make it happen!
The big drawl for half of the spectators at the Zumiez Couch tour are their big time skate demos. This year LRG, Volcom, Plan B, DGK and Gold Wheels, Adidas, Neff, Girl and Chocolate Skateboards will all be attending different stops of the tour! Another star studded line up for 2013! – Jason Chapman The National Skateboarding Examiner
