Back To School Bash All Ages Contest 2019 Coverage

Posted on Friday, August 9, 2019 by Chris

Our annual Back to School Bash All Ages Contest capped off summer vacation last weekend, and kids from all over came to shred. Jonny Rips is almost too good for 9-12 and the girls division had the most entries we've seen since it was added to the lineup. Also high fives to our own Tyler Wolford on taking 1st place in the Sponsored division. See you all at Harvest Jam in October.

Boards for Bros was raffling off a ton of awesome product with all the proceeds going to underprivileged kids.
We had our awesome Boards for Bros volunteers here, including Chris Miller who runs Boards for Bros NYC.
Jason Malley was here filming a SPoT Life for us, which you probably already watched above. Pleasure having you Jason!
