Outside there were some Boards for Bros tents where all proceeds go to giving skateboards to the less fortunate and everything that goes along with it. Part of it was also helping put these completes together, so they let anybody come along and take part in it as much as they wanted. If you want to learn more about Boards For Bros, you can check out the website here.
Jake Yanko didn’t stop at the street course. He went and got inverted in the concrete course.
Michael Mavo was skating the 16 & Up division but was warming up in the concrete instead. This One Footed Invert was 1st try.

The future generation of skaters; not to say they aren’t already killing it though.
