#PorpeLife at Dew Tour Portland

The Streetstyle Contest at Dew Tour Portland looks insane in person. Then when you see people like Raven and Sheckler skate the stuff, it's even more nuts. We could relocate The Boardr offices to Portland. This city too good. We've got photos and video from the whole weekend here.
