Our last all ages contest of the year is coming up next Saturday: Harvest Jam, hosted again by the good people at Expedition One. They're bringing Chany Jeanguenin, Frankie Heck and Dylan Witkin, who killed it during the Converse Concrete Jam during Tampa Am this year. You can register here if you want to skate, and note that we're doing a Girls' division now. After the contest is over, come join us for the premier of the Nike SB Chronicles 3 at Muvico Centro Ybor at 8pm. Details for that can be found here. Contest details are here. Check out footage from last year.

We’re going back to the ‘80s for this one... Jeff Grosso’s part (if it can really be called that) from the Santa Cruz Speed Freaks video. It shows that offering up skate commentary like the kind he dishes in Loveletters isn’t some new thing for Grosso. Here we get the infamous eyebrow shaving scene and quotes that have been used and abused worldwide at halfpipe sessions ever since. Jeff is on the internet somewhere saying this part “pretty much sucks,” and even though the skate clips, consisting of one line on vert and four marginal walls of a mini ramp run, are far eclipsed by the “lifestyle footage” this is a part of skate history that everybody should make themselves familiar with.

Dylan got strapped with a mic during this year's Tampa Am. Here's an insider's viewpoint as to what it's like on the sidelines, courtesy of our partners at Street League.

Our second annual Boards For Bros Build Day in Honor of Matt Woods was an amazing success. Seriously, it's unreal how many of you came out and showed your support. We got over 200 complete skateboards built in a matter of hours, and even had a chance to give some out to the kids from Positive Spin organization. Thanks to everyone who helped us make it happen and especially all the people who donated trucks, wheels, boards, bearings, grip, hardware, etc. Check out some photos from the event here, and take a look at the video that Ashley Page (one of our volunteers) made below. #BaldEagleForever
