Fun Fun Fun Fest requested the services of The Boardr so Ryan and I were in Austin, Texas to help coordinate some skateboard events this past weekend. There was a wide variety of musical acts. We're talking from Snoop Dog and MIA, to Slayer and The Descendents. Not to mention there was also comedy, wrestling, and of course skateboarding. I went there with camera in hand to document the festivities.

Skate Course Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013

The venue for the Fun Fun Fun Fest was located in a park overlooking the Austin skyline. There were three stages, a comedy tent, and a skate area that consisted of this mini-park, jump ramp, mini-ramp, and vert ramp.

Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013 Jump Ramp

The jump ramp was popular amongst those riding BMX. It was layerd with plywood so the skaters weren't really riding it.

Here is the mini-ramp where we hosted some Demos and Best Trick Contests.
