CHANNEL ST. EXTRAVAGANZA 12/16/2007

Some of the good ladies (and men folk) put together a ripping holiday fund raiser to make some more $$$ for ‘crete additions to the Channel Street Skatepark in San Pedro CA. All told about $700 was raised by selling baked goods, handcrafts, PISSBAT T-shirts, raffle tickets, tree ornaments, BBQ grillins, and the like. Many of the usual CD crew made it out to lend a hand, drop some coin, and enjoy a fun afternoon.


Under the Skateboarder Mag tent is where the action was.

Maybe not all the action was under the tent, Barfly gave some screen printing training to the new generation.


And there is always good action in the bowls.

-HAPPY HOLIDAYS

THE CLASH AT CLAIREMONT

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.
