Go Skateboarding Day 2017

Another June 21st has come and gone. For skateboarders everywhere this means one thing: Go Skate Day! We at Ambush celebrated the day by heading over to Swift-Cantrell Park and hosting an epic event.

The weather looked skeptical, but nonetheless the turnout was large. Every skateboarder has their group of friends and Go Skate Day brought out all the locals. We kicked off the event with some music courtesy of the old school L.A. punk band: The Cheifs. This brought the hype. The Cheifs jammed while the skaters ripped the park.

Kickflips, switch 180s, front shuvs, and nollie back 180s were standard for their bag of tricks. Wes Lembo served as hype man on the mic and kept the kids amped. When time ran out, a tre flip off the kicker took the win along with a brand new Ambush deck and $50 gift card. Read More >

Not lacking in all-terrain ability, this team has something for everyone. Kevin Baekkel ripped the street course, hitting all the rails with ease. Chris and Truman effortlessly flowed the bowl.
