IT'S OFFICIAL

SKATEBOARDING HAS BEEN CATAPULTED INTO
MAINSTREAM MEDIA!

IT'S OFFICIAL! Skateboarding has been catapulted into the status of at least that of Arena Football in terms of its coverage on mainstream media. Today, June 27, 2010 on FOX aired the Maloof Money Cup from Flushing New York and NBC aired the Dew Tour Skate Open from Boston. This I imagine is just the beginning of possibly many televised skate events, although I am keeping a reserved position on this due to the fact that the television media has such a short attention span and a small mind when it comes to developing the audience and developing new and interesting ways to film and capture these events in a way that brings the action off the screen for maxium effect. read more...


Maloof Money Cup Results

The Maloof Money Cup, which took place June 5 and 6 at Volcom Street Pro Skate Park in Flushing Meadows Corona Park, Queens and aired on Fox Sunday June 27th showcased some of the sports best riders competing for 250,000 in cash and prizes.

Chris Cole won out over many notable names to claim $100,000 Cash Prize for 2nd Straight Year P-Rod (Paul Rodriquez Jr.) placed 2nd and took home $40,000 while Torey Pudwill took home $25,000 for third place

The greatest thing about this event is the facility constructed specifically for this event will be left for the skateboard community in Flushing Medows to enjoy for years to come. This gift is a double barrel gift when you have this great event inspiring upcoming riders and giving them a world class park to develop in and enjoy. The importance of this kind of giving back can not be overlooked. The Maloof Money Cup is Creator Joe Maloof.

Dew Skateboarding Championship Results

Another steller event held in Boston would see the return of Jereme Rogers, who retired last year in order to put more time into his record company. Something I feel is a natural transition for a rider. Again, I say skateboarding is an expression of the street and the kids would grow up expressing themselves through this art-form called skateboarding.

Back to the results, this event was well produced and organized again giving the world a chance to see what we ahev all known about for many years... skateboarding is here to stay, so for those cities who have yet to build a skatepark in your community... break-out the check book.

The winner for this event was Greg Lutzka with second place going to Ryan Sheckler and Chaz Ortiz bringing it in for third. A notable mention goes to Bastien Salabanzi who's dynamic style stood out in his forth placed effort.

THE 1st ANNUAL SUNSET STRIP FESTIVAL WAS A BIG HIT. This event was originally scheduled for June 26 through the 28 but had to be rescheduled in order to make the event the best it could be and the reschedule was well worth it. This Festival took place on Sept. 10, 11, and 12. Video here...
