Clash @ Clairemont 3, March 14th 2009. Come out and watch a big demo and help fight cancer.
Saturday was a good skateday. All kinds of stuff giong 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.
