Skate Arvada –
Better Late Than Never.

Took a trip out to Colorado a little over a month ago for the King of the Snake – Dave Tuck Invitational and to hit up some of the amazing spots that I keep hearing so much about. I’ve been told a thousand times, but it wasn’t until we got there did I truly understand the magnitude of skate terrain in Arvada and the skate scene that goes along with it.

Before we could leave California, we had a little hicup at the airport.

We made our flight in time and we were off to Denver.
Spent the next day witnessing some heavy shred go down at Arvada Skatepark for the King of the Snake – Dave Tuck Invitational. In addition to an amazing contest, there was huge raffles, custom art, food trucks, music cranking all day, and all around good times… all to support Dave Tuck.

After Josh Borden was crowned King of the Snake, we headed over to Rock-A-Billies for the after party. Space In Time started it off and killed it with a blend of psychedelic face melting that got the crowd pumped.

Took it easy the rest of the night in order to get a little skating in the next day before we had to leave.
I’ve been hearing so much about Terrill’s bowl, we weren’t about to leave before taking some turns in it.
