What an awesome day in the lovely San Diego sun when you’ve got your industry friends together all having a great time skating. Bamboosk8 had a pretty weird spot in between and over some ramps but under the main stage where the bands played, but it ended up working well as our banner was placed in plain view of the best trick contest where all the photos were being shot. Each of the winners got bamboo skate decks. Tons of skaters and parents visited the booth and we sold tons of 100% bamboo skateboard decks – thanks to the efforts of our interns Mark d, Mark o, Gary and Monica. It’s great to see the excitement of people who are proud of what you are doing for the environment and for skateboarding. Other than that, it was great to see some pros – Christian Hosoi, Bucky Lasek, Andy Macdonald etc. tearing up the 14′ ramp and pool. Also, to see the new hot shot kids like Allysha Bergado (thanks Tho), Austin Poytner (thanks Gerry) and Shane Borland (thanks Jimbo); all of which use to skate with me on Termite Skateboards a few years ago.
