Zumiez Couch Tour 2011 rolled into Austin, Texas in a big way. With the bands Anarbor and Forever the Sickest Kids in the house, the crowds got up and showed their love. The 100 plus degree heat here in Austin didn't keep these dudes down. Man, it was so hot out there I saw kids fry an egg on a rock for breakfast! The smooth breeze did allow for a slight reprieve from the heat. And the amount of bottled water sold in this sauna of a fun-fest could easily fill the Grand Canyon, and then some.

The illest shredders from all over the Austin, TX area were in full-effect on one of the hottest days. In first place and killing everything in sight was Ke'Chaud Johnson, who rocked a picture-perfect backside 360 over the handrail at the buzzer. Second was Ryan Holloway, rocking clean and original maneuvers all over the course. And rounding out the top three was Luke Heilmann, pulling it off with consistency and style.

The BFF contest gave way to the onslaught from Tiltmode's own, Caswell Berry and Jose Rojo. Some members of the Enjoi team backed up Almost Skateboard pros, Chris Haslam, Cooper Wilt and CJ Tambornino. Skateboarding legend Rodney Mullen was on hand too. Shining his blazing light on the demo with crowd-pleasing rawness was the UK's own, Ben Raemers. Ben rocked the finale of the demo with a huge iceplant to fakie on the backboard of the big quarterpipe.

All the madness and fun that you could possibly expect from the combo of an Enjoi/ Almost demo was in full-blast thrusting mind-melt mode. Nothing slowed down the fun as Austin brought down the house and came out in a spectacular show of appreciation for the bands and skating alike. Couch Tour rages on Texas-style.
