Go Skateboarding Day is everyday but this year Red Bull, SPoT and Westside Skateshop teamed up to celebrate. They barged the Bro Bowl for a cash for tricks contest and a long ollie contest. Then headed SPoT for free food and even more cash for tricks. Everyone wanted a piece of the $1,000 cash purse but only the hammers got paid, check it out now!

A special social distancing edition of the Grind For Life Series Presented by Marinela went down last weekend at The Boardr HQ in Tampa.
The bottom line is this: Back to the Banks 2008 was an event that felt like skateboarding should feel, so hats off to Steve Rodriguez from 5Boro, for stressing out and doing the generally thankless job of running a skateboarding event. It’s one of those raw deals…feeling like real skateboarding. So thanks, Steve. The Contest was broken down into four different sections: Bank-to-wall, bank-to-ledge, tranny-spine, and stairs/rail.
The GFL Series is a US national series of street and bowl contests that leads to the Annual Awards at the end of the year in Tampa. Check the schedule for 2020 HERE!
The main event of RVCAloha 2019 took place December 4th and was a night to remember. The evening’s exhibition, entitled ‘The #HammerheadShow’, was a unique exhibition showcasing of artwork dedicated to Christian Hosoi, inspired by his long legacy in skateboarding and the original Hammerhead deck painted by Keith Haring for Christian back in 1986. The show featured over 50 artists from around the world, ranging from close friends of the legendary skateboarder, to those who idolized him and his iconic style from afar. Replicas of the original hammerhead deck were provided to each artist to paint and each was hung along with an accompanying canvas, to create a one of a kind collection and art show. Proceeds from the purchase of each work will be donated to charitable causes of the artists’ and Christian’s choice.
RVCA Skate advocates Andrew Reynolds, Kevin “Spanky” Long, Evan Mock, Greyson Fletcher, Zach Allen, Curren Caples, and Malakai Montes, spend a week on the North Shore of Oahu for RVCA’s annual RVCAloha takeover.
The day has finally arrived, and Woodward Park City is officially open to the public! With a star-studded cast of athletes also ready to celebrate, everyone is stoked to see all that this one-of-a-kind facility has to offer. As legends like Tony Hawk and Ryan Nyquist put on a show indoors, Red Gerard, Tom Wallisch and others test out the mountain park just steps outside. Tony Hawk speaks to the crowd during the official ribbon cutting ceremony before Nate Wessel and crew pack up their tools and say goodbye…for now.
