Curb your enthusiasm

Its been a crazy summer around here with events and we’re not done yet…

Squeezing in on the last day of Summer 2012 – Blvd and Color Magazine present Slappy Days.  A just for fun event along the same lines as our infamous ‘skate or die’ 80′s jams in the past.

Slappy Days is a throwback to the early 90′s skate scene. Wheels were ridiculously small and pants were stupidly BIG.  In many ways it was the renaissance of modern street skating. When a new generation of kids with no prior knowledge of 80′s vert skating took to the streets and especially the curbs of every town in the country.

Join us Friday September 21st @ 5pm for some good old fashioned curb dancing on Expo Blvd at the aptly named ‘yellow mile’ curb located across from Rogers Arena.

There’s prizes from DC, Alien Workshop, Shorty’s and World Industries for tricks and outfits too!

Spread the word!

 

Battle clips galore

No shortage of media at this year’s Battle at Hastings III. Cameras were everywhere catching 4 hours of non stop shredding.

So much rad skating went down that everyone seemed to get their own take on what happened.

Here’s some vids from Dane @ Supra Dist, Mike Graveline and Sheldon Barr/Brian Caissie for Push.ca.

 

 

 

 

 

Battlefield Hastings

Safe to say the Battle at Hastings III did not disappoint this past Saturday.  The weather was perfect, the crowd was stoked and with $5k for first place up for grabs – the skaters came for a fight.

Its been said that the battlefield is a scene of constant chaos. The winner will be the one who controls that chaos, both his own and the enemies.
