Tom Remillard turns pro for Expedition One
Tom Remillard for Expedition One
In late January, Expedition One celebrated their latest addition to the pro ranks, Tom Remillard (pictured here), at the Washington Street Skatepark, complete with a BBQ and skate jam. The event, which was plagued by rain, included Remillard's first pro deck, featuring his wrist in a cast. "Congrats on going pro Tom, all those broken bones were worth it," said Expedition One. What follows is a collection of photos from the event.

Josh had to go to work that day, but not before giving congrats to Tom. He was also able to catch a few grinds over the seat before he left, and before the rain set in.
