Slappy Slaughter 2014 Recap

crazy kyle slappy slaughter 2014

It never rains in California.

OK, maybe it does sometimes. That time just happened to be on this year’s Crazy Kyle Slappy Slaughter. The good thing about this event is that it brings out a solid crew of skaters that don’t give a fuck about rain. In fact, the added sketchiness and uncertainty made for an even more amazing time.

KB clears a path to his sketchy wall ride creation during a break in the weather.

Phony Alva (Nathan Rennie) brought some heavy slappy game.

The Slappy Slaughter was generously hosted again this year by Matt Gaudio and Hailey Villa at Pink Widow Distribution in Fullerton CA. With the help of Kyle Mitchell, we constructed a 18 foot parking block and Kevin Burke hand crafted a super sketchy wall ride that pulled the whole parking lot jam together.

A bunch of familiar faces and tons of new comers. Everyone that came out, young and old, all had smiles on their rain soaked faces. Wouldn’t of had it any other way.
