Recap: Grind for Life at New Smyrna Presented by adidas

Posted by Rob Meronek on Monday, April 13, 2015

It was another nice Florida weekend of skateboarding from literally all ages and skills. From 7-year-olds to 53-year-olds and everyone in between, men and women included, everyone ripped. Thanks for coming out to another one. With HiDefJoe on the west coast working on other projects, filmer intern Nate took over on this one and has the video recap along with some photos. Check full results here.

Demarion and his homie Chief Dai Dai, baby rhyme sayer. Thanks for coming to your first Grind for Life Contest.

You can tell the street section here at New Smyrna is a product of the early 2000's. Everyone makes it work.

The classic tyke move in the younger divisions, the blunt nosegrab.

Bradley Freeman has a nice frontside ollie.

There was a mixup in Girls results where the Jam order was read rather than the actual results. Sorry about that! We quickly informed everyone and set it straight.

When we sent the text for the trophy plates, New Smyrna was spelled correctly. They came back to us with it spelled wrong. I guess copy and paste lessons are in order at the trophy company. Thanks Indy for making the deck/truck trophies from used boards, many of them from us and friends that skated them in Tampa.
