The calm before the storm on this beautiful Saturday morning as we all got prepped for the Back to School Bash presented by etnies.
Inside, Mikah was tackling registration and the kids were hyped to skate!
Chris Reitz getting his tricks in before he starts judging people all day. BS Smith.
Terrance Rice and his dad there for support. Great outfits by the way!
Noah Nagaro Mute Bonless. He took home 1st in the 8 & Under. When he’s in the 16 & Up division, he’ll be blasting these over coping.
Sully Cormier - Bean Plant.
Angel Gonzalez - Hardflip.
Darius Norton - Tre Flip down the set like a grown man!
Steven Szumal - Bean Plant to Disaster.
The crowd was getting wild. Smack your board!
Adam Tyler - Barley Grind for 1st Place 13-15 Division.
Outside we had a few tents up in the courtyard. Boards for Bros was out there setting up boards for less fortunate.
Upon further investigation, David Reyes was in there.
David Reyes and Matt Berger came out for etnies and the contest. These two dudes killed and were extremely helpful. Thanks for coming out!
Josh Knight - Expert Meat Handler. Free BBQ for the rippers to keep them skating all day!
I was walking around the park between breaks and it seems like someone got contest nerves and threw up. Nothing SPoT Maintenance cant handle.
Pat Daly on the job.
Back inside the park, the judges finished their judging and now it was time to get the results.
