Mike Crum and the guys at Overground threw another great Texas Skate party event. The ramp was shredded by young guns, legends and variety of others joining in. Hey, it's Texas -no rules just skate! Henry Gutierrez skated with the same powerful style he had back in the day. Texan Chris Gentry always out to show respect pulled a ton of big tricks including proper Phillips 66"s. Navarette, Partenen, Josh Stafford, Jake Brown and others all kept the action full on. But it seemed Jimmy Wilkins and Sam Beckett stole the show with their big aerial moves and and tricks spanning across the ramp judging by the loud cheers.
Great skating by legends Craig Johnson, Tony Alva, Doug Saladino, Steve Olson and lot's of other rippers. Alva in his mid fifties now still throws down some gnarly pool lines and tricks all through both jams. Craig Johnson attacked the pool with burly Texas Style since before the start of the jam. Doug Saladino dished out some heavy punishment to the coping as well showing us this legend isn't done ripping yet. Steve Olson dropped in with some fast, stylish and rad lines. Add in the live music by some great local bands and that made for a fun day at the Lee & Joe Jamail skatepark in Houston.
Great fun Texas Style! Lot's of rad high speed skating. The event is in honor of Tim Chason who left us far to early, RIP. It was formerly the April Fools Bowl event. The sounds of pool coping grinds, tail slaps and high speed carving filled the park. A crazy session to the sounds of Demon Driver broke out between some heats. Later tasty food courtesy of Dave Donalson Family and Pinks Pizza was served. If you missed it, you should've been there! A big thanks to everyone involved and all those that came out to share good times.
It'll happen again next year.
Another great Turkey Jam at Houston's EZ-7 ditch. The weather was perfect for some fun skating and hanging out!
Lot's of insane skating, bands, art, vendors and more. The second annual Boneless One was the place to be. Mike, Oliver and the Overground crew did a great job setting up a weekend of fun. It was the place to be. On the second day there was a boneless contest thrown by Entropy Skateboards. If you couldn't make there's always next time and our coverage of it below. Enjoy our photos.
Great time for all with lots of killer skating on the street course and in the pool and bowl.
What a fun weekend at The Music Ranch put on by Booze Town Entertainment and Austin Live Music Cooperative. Camping, Punk Rock on 3 stages and a mini ramp for the skaters - all void of the usual overbearing restrictions - the way it should be! Lots of great bands. The ones that stood out to us were Symbol Six, Lower Class Brats and On The Shoulders of Giants.
Symbol Six played a long set with various people like Stig Stench on the harp Texecala Jones and several others. OTSOG threw down a fast skate punk fueled set and Lower Class Brats delivered some killer punk Austin style.
This is a yearly event so we will post next year's info in our blog.
