June 21st 12pm. I will be taking you through the day and making this online photo extravaganza a experience. Grab a snack, turn off your phone, and prepare for total blog overload. Well I do have coffee in front of me so that helps with the enthusiasm.
The day was bleeding skateboarding...
Chula Vista has a big skatepark. I can't think of anything else to say about this photo.
The line to skate the double set at the park where the DJ was set up also.
Whats that in the background of the DJ booth? Oh yeah we...
had a dunk tank. I can't believe somebody actually let us rent a dunk tank from them.
Whats that in the background. Whys there a kid hanging on the fence?
Oh yeah its not a kid just a life sized super man skater pinata.
More on the pinata later... Back to the dunk tank.
watch out Nolan Ryan and Randy Johnson are up to throw...
This little guy loved the dunk tank. He was in it for hours. The only thing was that he kept getting tired so you had to physically grab him and put him back on the seat.
If you went in fully clothed you came up on new pants and tee's from us.
Random product tosses went on throughout the day. Every kid walked away with something.
After dunk tanking and product tossing we were best tricking...
Instead of shooting it like a skate contest we decided to shoot it like a dance off.
hmm.. the shoulder blade slide.. thats a new one.
The run and jump on your back move... this was a crowd favorite...
I haven't seen this one for ages. The confused backwards butt spin. Whew. Thats some Shakira shit right there.
The confused backwards butt spin was matched by the sideways version. Things were really starting to heat up at this point.
The arm pump 360 blind sided spin!
The butt cheak only levitating tornado was one of the final good dance moves I saw that day. Boy was it eventful.
But seriously...these guys won the contest. Stay tuned for the video we are editing right now.
When I got back from the dance off Tod was being interviewed by Channel 6 news.
We decided that wasn't exciting enough for us so we did a product toss around him mid interview. You are welcome Tod.
I spy with my little eye Tod bailing on the interview(can you find him?). Fun game huh?
We wrapped up the go skateboarding day at Chula Vista skatepark and prepared for the skate from the park to the new Overload Skateshop 3 miles away.
We took over the streets with roughly 75 kids or so.
I was in the middle of the group. I saw the most epic board getting ran over scene ever. Wish I would've been quick enough to shoot a sequence of it for you. It went like this...me skating down a hill, me seeing a kid fall and his board shoot towards a large oversized truck in the other line coming towards us, me saying to myself this is going to be epic, the board being ran over twice, me patting myself on the back because it was epic, me laughing, the TumYeto van picking the kid up that just got his board focused, the TumYeto staff giving him a new board, the kid being stoked that he came to our Go Skateboarding Day event even though his board got ran over. the end of the story. Moving on...
Our Pinata was being taken prisoner to the skate shop so we could break him open. Kinda sad considering he was already a amputee.
How come the pinata people made him legs but no arms? Hmmm...anyways...we brought him to the shop so we could break him open.
Instead of sticks we use skateboards. Hey just don't knock off his hands oh wait he doesn't have any anyways. Swing away buddy...
Let me take you back to the day before Go Skateboarding Day and show you what we filled him with. Stickers, Candy, DVDs, tech decks, 1 hat, and wheels. Ok now back to the day...
Good luck surviving the pit of kids ripping the pinata in pieces. Literally...pieces...I have proof.
SHIT! You now are a amputee with no head.. or a head and no body. Sorry my friend. Its been fun.
Apparently he was filled with candy and not blood and a heart and lungs and organs and bones and stuff.
We held one last product toss and called it a day. Thanks to everyone that came out. Especially Aaron from Overload and Chula Vista skatepark and all the sponsors. Without all of you this could not have happened. Respect.
