What used to be called AMTEC is now called Vans AM Pool Party 2015. As you might have read, I was just in Los Angeles and got to spend a lot of time with the kids during their practice sessions during the last couple of weeks. Some of the Canadians were having a hard time getting runs in so some of the better kids (the ones that finished top 3 plus the Rennies) would block the other kids so that the old guys could get some runs in. I did not seem to have a problem getting runs but then again, as a heavy weight the kids must have been scared to run into me. The Canadians had a blast skating with this kids. Man are those kids good.
In third place for the 14 and under is Kiko. He is listed as... [Voir la suite]

I had watched most of the contest live from a phone recording, no editing and no different angles. Since the contest went down, I have been waiting for the coverage to appear on the internet. Outlets like Thrasher Magazine and Transworld Skateboarding rarely ever post contests let alone a girl’s contest. They can do whatever they want.
Over the years I have sessioned with most of the girls in these different categories. They almost always make me look like a big chicken during those sessions. Even though my skating did not shine during these session, I usually had an amazing time. Actually, since I have a pear shape to my body (like a woman), I should spend more time watch girls skateboard to figure how they get... [Voir la suite]
People keep on telling me that mellow, short, non challenging obstacles are required for (private) skateparks. Apparently little kids (and beginners) can not skate anything that passes 45 degrees of vertical (meaning mellow). They also can not skate anything taller than 7 feet tall, or is that 6 feet, or maybe 5 feet? What am I saying? 4 feet the limit. Maybe it should be 1 foot? Or maybe skaters should get a license that defines their abilities and they should only be able to skateboard on obstacles that are classified under their abilities like how snowboarding on ski hills was in the mid 80’s? If a skatepark obstacle has the possibility of being challenging it should not be included within a private skatepark is the... [Voir la suite]
