Tyson's and Jason's South American adventure

Long time Minnesota residents and former park rats Tyson Crockett and Jason Trask have turned in their youngster status cards and started the transition to becoming men. Check out some of their exploits as they help spread the propaganda of Academy Snowboards to a little region in Argentina, know as Patagonia (Cerro Catedral). The duo was recently overheard explaining the change to big mountain riding stating, "When you graduate high school in the 90's it's just time".

O.U.T. Championship

Category :

Cal Surf, Familia and 3rd Lair teamed up this year to present the 10th annual OUT Championship at the Herkimer Bar and Brew Pub in Uptown. This is the 1st year the event was moved away from the skatepark. It coincided with the 1st Open Streets event, which closed Lyndale Ave to motorized traffic, so there was a ton of people out on bikes, skateboards, doing yoga in the streets, walking on stilts, etc. taking advantage of the closed major throughway into downtown. This led to a large, captive group of people taking in the fun flatland event.

The original bracket of 64 was narrowed down to the final 2 of CJ Tambornino and Rob Warren, both previous winners of this event. CJ made a straight sweep of the best 2 out of 3 finals. My personal highlights, other than CJ's tech wizardry, were watching Joe Sexton make the final 8 and catching our new team rider Matt Ohman making it into the semifinals. What started as a brisk overcast morning ended with a great event on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Thanks to everybody that attended.

Heartbeat Of Emerica Tour Recap

Category : , , ,

Last Saturday some dudes from Emerica stopped by the shop to hang, sign some autographs, and grill up some hot dogs with us. These dudes weren't just your regular old skate dudes though they were Jerry Hsu, Heath Kirchart and Leo Romero.

They got to the shop right on time and to a packed house. There wasn't much time for Hsu, Kirchart and Romero to line up before they were mobbed by the eager autograph seeking kids.

After wards we walked to Lake Calhoun to try our luck at grilling up some hot dogs. Even though the wind wasnt doing us any favors we were able to get some dogs and brats grilled up, thanks to Jerry's quick thinking and fearless use of lighter fluid.

Thanks to everyone that came out and thanks to Jerry Hsu, Heath Kirchart and Leo Romero for stopping by.

Welcome to the team Matt Ohman!
