The Kissing Hands and Shaking Babies Tour was a Cross Canada trek made by our close friends and retailer Switchback Longboards. The idea was for Switchback to meet their customers as most of their interactions are online. A few of our riders tagged along including; Braden Tibbles, Dominique Vukorep, Justin Readings, and Nick Jean. You can check out their Switchback Profiles for more info on each rider. You can also look at Switchback's Tour Page for more info on the entire tour.

Week one was a great success and everything went off smooth. In true Switchback fashion they missed the first ferry but managed to make a quick visit to the Rayne Factory on day 1 before the session. After Vancouver they followed through to Kelowna, Kamloops, Edmonton and finally the IGSA 2012 World Championships in Calgary.
