adidas Skateboarding launched into their Away Days team tour of Australia on Saturday with a cracking demo at the Melbourne Museum.
Each stop on the tour will feature adidas' Bring Your Build challenge – a task for select local skate shops and adidas affiliates to create unique skateable obstacles and structures for each demo event.
Check out the photos and captions from the Melbourne event by Andrew Peters below (except where noted).
Sydney, you're next with a demo on Wednesday the 14th, followed by the Gold Coast on Friday the 16th. All tour details are here.
