Grind for Life Bradenton Photos, Video, and 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.

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.

Wow, look at that front foot on this backside 360. It's always amazing to see grown man style in the select few little guys that are lucky enough to have it. Roman hasn't hit the double digits in age yet.
