2013 Vans Amtec Combi Contest Video.

SoCal Skateshop posted up some video from the 2013 Vans Amtec Combi Contest that was held this past weekend. The level of skateboarding progresses more and more each year with these young guns. Cory Juneau ended up 1st in the 14 and Under division, while Tristan Rennie took top honors in the 15 and Over… not only winning $2000, but also a trip to Brazil to skate the Red Bull contest at the Pedro Barros compound. Congrats to the little rippers for killing it and to Vans and all the others that made it all possible.

King Of The Skatepark Jam Session held by Charlie Blair

On Feb. 2nd Charlie Blair had a Jam session at the Fullerton Skatepark. There was a good turnout and a lot of the locals were there. Everyone was ripping and the session had a good vibe. I posted up by the hip most of the time because that’s were most of the action was going on. I did not get that many photos but here are a few of the photos I got:

Salba’s 50th B-day Skate Jam was held yesterday at Fontana skatepark. Taco Dudes were out there slingin’ free tacos, live music, and plenty of shred. Haven’t seen the park that crowded since it opened. Good to see everyone out there ripping. Happy birthday Salba!

Pam Brodowski Benefit.

One thing I’ve learned over the years is that when a fellow skateboarder is in need, the skateboard community steps up and helps out. Saturday was no exception. Pam Brodowski was recently diagnosed with cancer and has been going through a number of treatments. A benefit was held at Fontana skatepark over the weekend in order to raise funds to easy up some of the financial burden as Pam beats this horrible disease.

Salba Clause and Pam

If you didn’t make it out to the event and want to support Pam’s battle with cancer, please send any donations via paypal to pamela_brodowski@yahoo.com

Radballs 5 Year Anniversary Skate Jam.

This past Saturday we celebrated our 5th anniversary with some punk rock and heavy shredding at Unit B. Pretty blown away by all of you that came out to support the cause. We raised close to $500 for The A.skate Foundation by raffling of product all donated by companies we support and admire. Huge thank you to Taco Dudes for bringing out the food, DJ Don Cesar for keeping the party going the whole time, Dirtbag, Slow Children and the infamous Whitekaps for coming out and making ears bleed.

Before it all started, Brad Markley, with a little help from KB, blasted the wall.

Heavy load

Just some of the raffle product

We had the grand idea to hold a worst trick-contest… well, there was so much ripping going down that it was only obvious to scratch that idea and give away some cash for the best trick. Since SoCal Skateshop donated the prize money, the only problem now was trying to figure who it should go to. Charlie Blair, Ronnie Yerman, Tristan Rennie, Denzel White, Robbie Russo, Riley Stevens and a bunch of others were blowing minds and pushing Unit B to it’s limits. But, after an unanimous decision, Riley took the $100 with his epic smith stall on the railing (see video).
