Maloof Skateboarding Announces Global Initiative

Worldwide Program to Promote Skateboarding & Support Communities Kicks Off Year-Long South Africa Tour Leading Up to Maloof Money Cup, the World


Saturday was a good skateday. All kinds of stuff going on. Jeff covered the Pedlow contest and I ventured down south for the Clash at Clairemont event. The old (last years) X Games ramp found a home at the Mission Valley YMCA. The vert demo consisted of most the big names. Bucky, Bob, Lincoln, and of course Tony to name a few. You know if Tony shows up the crowds will follow. He and the other skaters went right to work on the beast ramp.

Tony Hawk stalefish

I’ve be lucky enough to cover The X Games and stand on the deck of these huge ramps many times. But it always blows me away when a guy throws a ten foot plus air in front of me.

Lincoln sky master.

The demo moved into the pool and the session raged.

Chris Miller classic FSA.

Bob was on fire.

Mike Rogers got into the mix. Grind For Life was one of the event sponsors. Always cool to catch Mike skating.

Lots of booths , food and give-aways. Big Bonus…. Agent Orange played pool side. It was sick!

Good times all around. Big thanks goes out to Laszlo Kelemen and to everyone else who made this event happen.

NRPA Conference 2005: San Antonio

The first day I was able to sit in on a skatepark education session presented by KaBOOM. I arrived early and peeped in on some of the other education sessions and noticed 10-20 people in each room. When I got to the skatepark class it was packed. There must have been over a hundred Parks and Recreation employees from across the country jammed into this classroom…
