News Update: October 19, 2006


HOOD RIVER, Ore. – October 11, 2006 - DAKINE, a leading manufacturer of packs, bags and accessories for action sports professionals and enthusiasts, has partnered with the ‘Grease Not Gas’ organization to take a skate tour on the road from San Diego to Seattle.  DAKINE team riders Paul Machnau, Jeron Wilson and Chris Haslam will pile into a ‘Grease Not Gas’ RV for an eight day, 1300 mile trip up the west coast visiting retailers, signing autographs and doing demos.

The ‘Grease Not Gas’ mission is to create social change through alternative fuels.  The organization’s RV runs solely on vegetable oil, emitting no cancer causing exhaust or sulfur dioxide (which causes acid rain), and leaving everyone in its path craving french fries.

Check out all of the tour’s fun, action and mayhem at a stop near you:

October 20th – 4p.m. at Sundiego in Mission Beach, CA

October 21st – 2:30p.m. at ZJ’s Boardhouse Santa Monica, CA
