Ambush Game of Skate #16

Skateboarders are quite possibly the most enthusiastic people on the planet. I know we may seem spaced out, aloof, and disinterested, but that’s part of our charm. When it comes to skateboarding, we are all in.

The Ambush Game of Skate is the most consistently rock solid event in the Atlanta skateboard scene, and it isĀ  the gusto of the participants that makes the contest what it is. No vibes here…just a couple hundred skateboarders pursuing their passion. Everyone was hanging out, rooting their friends on, and tapping their boards in respect for a banger trick. It’s as if we were all in this together and the competition was just a way to express our personal individuality throughout the day. And that’s what skateboarding is all about.

However, unlike your little sister’s youth soccer match, we were keeping score. And for those of you that love the thrill of victory, the contest was pretty f*[{!#& competitive. Cheers to those who made the podium.
