Yep, after we took our Best Trick contest to the streets for the first time at the Portland Dew Tour, we’re once again stepping up our game and holding our Best Trick in Salt Lake City on an already existing skate spot, the Convention Center seven stair kinked rail. Jon Allie’s skated it, Adam Dyet’s skated it, so you’ll probably recognize it when you see it. But come Saturday night, with the highlights showing on NBC and skateboaridng.com on Sunday September 20th, this rail is gonna see more tricks go down on it than ever.
ASR came and went once again without much hubbub. There was a mini ramp contest that the SPoT guys hosted. Andrew Langi ripped it and had some cash on hand at the Alphanumeric party that was held at Confidential. Malakye.com hosted the most fun event of the weekend—the Office Boyz contest for all us desk jockeys. Mike Fitz from TransWorld, Adam Sullivan from Fuel, Bama from Black Box, John Short from Volcom, and many more ripped it up and had fun. TWS actually won Best Team Spirit and a nice trophy. Since parties were few and far between, many of us descended on the TW Surf party at Bondi Bar where online editor Justin Cote and Miss TransWorld Surf, Heather Rose, were buying the drinks. Friday night, New Era invited us to its VIP suite at Petco Park to watch the Padre game. Free brew and food was provided and a few of us were lucky enough to catch foul balls.
On September 27th, 2009 from 3-7 pm Brent Atchley will host a Bowl Jam best trick contest at Brooklyn's Autumn Bowl. Atchley, a Portalnd Oregon native will be on hand to skate the bowl himself and, if you've seen him skate anythnig, that 's reason enough to come watch.
The event is being sponsored byDakine,Element, Chopper Dave Productions, Asahi beverages, Autumn skateshop and Prize Fighter Cutlery wheels.
