Our third Converse Concrete Jam since the new course was poured and this was by far the gnarliest. Ams going for it from all sides and one of the most brutal slams we've ever seen. Plus ATL's Reese got the party turned up and with free booze flowing all night, you know it was live. Here's highlights from our 23 Year Anniversary Party.

Mark Gonzales is a genius, and I’m not using the term loosely. It’s crazy to think how much of what we’re still doing today, or trying to do, was his idea, from the stalefish to just about any 180 fakie 50-50 you can think of. If you look at where skating is today and think of all the trends that have come and gone in between, you’ll see that this part from Video Days cuts through it all and goes straight to the core of skateboarding. He also boardslides a ridiculous double kink, does one of those fs inverts that helped put Ronnie Sandoval on our radar 20 some years later, introduces Wallenberg to the world (frontside grab!), and ushers jazz onto the scene. All hail Gonz, the greatest of all time.

November 18th was a typical promotional visit to the sunshine state for President John F. Kennedy. It was quite the opposite for the City of Tampa and it’s law enforcement, as this would be the first time a sitting President visited the Bay area of Florida. Read more.
