Pat Stiener opens it up with a part in It's All That. Following is a good crew of current Tampa locals like Aaron Austin and former ones like Kevin Coakley with the list going on all the way down to our filmer HiDefJoe whose travel belly is snapping his boards. Even Alex Donahue in there with a trick?!? I feel like I live in a big ol' real city when I see video parts filmed in all the blocks surrounding my downtown neighborhood. Thanks for finishing up this project, Frank Branca, as well as shredding in there yourself.
You can get instant results from all our events as they happen on the Results page at TheBoardr.com/Results. I still can't believe that we have skateboarders from 6-years-old to 53-years-old skating all day in these events. We saw the sun come up on one side of the skatepark and saw it set on the other side as 150+ entries went through in all those divisions. I made so many new friends from tiny tikes to grown ups and hope you did, too.
Thanks to everyone that brought families and friends to another Grind for Life event. I hope to see you one last time in 2014 for the Awards and Annual Recap at The Boardr Headquarters. It's going to be a fun one remembering the year and sessioning The Boardr Mini.
Finally, we were in town to have our first event at The Boardr Headquarters after a super busy summer and fall of events in everyone else's backyard. I've got a few photos to go with the On The Boardr episode above from what turned out to be a super chill and fun day of bikes, skateboarding, a little booze, and a lot of friends meeting a lot of other friends as these worlds of four wheels and two wheels spent an entire day together. I hope you were here!
The overall results for the year are in after the last stop of 2014 at Bradenton. You have to skate at least two events out of the four for the year to be in the running for an end of the year award, so only those skaters are shown below.
We hope you can join us for the Awards Ceremony on November 22 at our house, The Boardr Headquarters. We'll have a nice session on the new mini ramp along with a video recap and special awards for each Division.
Make it a complete weekend of skateboarding shindigs on the west coast of Florida this weekend with the Grind for Life Contest at Bradenton Skatepark on Saturday followed by the Mini-Ramp Jam in Lakeland. Register for both right here online before your division fills up. See you there at both this weekend!
Neal got to spend some time outside the Contest for some experience in the culture of Kimberley. Here's another photo set.
That crowd reaction when Nassim edged out Nyjah in the second round by just a few points was insane. They almost brought all the tents down. Here's the recap of the ripping in the Finals of the Skateboarding World Championships at Kimberley Diamond Cup in a new episode of On The Boardr. I've also got a camera dump below.
