2015: Year of the Yeto

Tum Yeto

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, it is no surprise that TumYeto, home to Toy Machine, Foundation, Dekline, and more, is quickly staking its claim as one of the most popular skateboard related distributors. With the addition of Habitat Skateboards last year and recent acquisition of Alien Workshop, Tum Yeto has stepped in to carry on the legacy of core skateboarding. These new additions to the Tum Yeto camp may catch you off guard, but once the dust settles it all makes sense. From the top of the food chain down to the entry-level employee, Tum Yeto is truly owned and operated by skateboarders.

While the staple brands like Toy Machine continue on their path of awesomeness, not more than a couple of years ago Dekline Footwear was hardly even on anyone’s radar. Since then, Dekline has gone through some serious roster changes and emerged as one of the top selling footwear brands not backed by big industry money. We asked Tum Yeto team manager Mike Sinclair, in his opinion, why Dekline has become a household name as of late.

Mazza Mondays: SEC3 The Final Chapter Premiere!

First things first: Thank you everybody for coming out to the premiere! It was awesome! We had no clue this many people were going to be there. For everybody that bought a copy, thanks for the support!

Saturday morning started great! Good ol’ Greenville boy Mckenzie Goff woke me with a little treat. After that, straight to the Chik Fil-A BUFFET at the Dwarf House for an awesome breakfast!

Then, we had a sweet sesh at Decatur park with all the boys. Good fun, relaxed enviroment while we are all waiting to head over to the premiere.

Finally, 6:30 rolled around. This is where things started to get rough (a.k.a. good). It was awesome seeing all the people.

As the night continued, more and more debauchery. We headed over to Estoria to end the night! Too bad there was a sucky band playing there making constant noise that just hurt my hears. So, I had to leave. Well, it was actually 3:30 am. So, that’s why I left!

Josh Butler Benefit Game of Skate

Josh Butler is family. Ever need a friend, Josh is there to oblige. Looking for a good time, Josh is your man. Need someone to talk to, Josh will listen. Josh has all of the characteristics you would want in a brother, friend, team rider, son, and even your daughter’s boyfriend. So, when Josh desperately needs your help, you better give it your all.

For those of you that don’t know, Josh Butler was shot in the abdomen during a robbery last year. He has made a full recovery, but his medical bills are devastating. And although Josh would never ask for our help, we know how truly deserving and thankful for the help he would be.

The Josh Butler Benefit Game of Skate raised over $2,000 for the Josh Butler Medical Fund. And, it was a super good time. Special thanks to all of you that came out to support. Your participation went a long way towards helping Josh get his life back to normal.

Ambush Demo @ Found Skatepark

Friday August 31st the Ambush team headed up north to Found Skatepark to show off the goods and give away some goodies. This was the first time up there for most of us and I have to say that the park is pretty damn sweet. The guys over at Found made good use of a smaller sized space and the park flows like butter. I know the Found is pretty far from home for you local Ambush dudes, but we saw a few familiar faces up there (which is awesome) and met a whole bunch of new rad kids as well. Hopefully, this video will hype some of you to drive up to Ellijay and give it a whirl.

Big thanks to Mike and the whole Found crew for having us, and an even bigger thanks to all the kids and families who showed up in support. Hope you guys had as much fun as we did!

Josh Butler Benefit Jam

The Ambush Josh Butler Benefit Jam at Progressive Skatepark was a success. Lets cut to the chase: We raised $3,015 throughout the event through raffles and entry fees. Everybody was happy. Josh got a good chunk of change to help out his medical bills and every single kid walked out with at least one prize. If you didn’t walk away with something, then you probably were not there.

The epic grom sessions were epic, the adult jams were insane, and the mini ramp jams were pretty wild. I don’t know what the parents are feeding their kids up there in Canton, but some of those 13 and under kids were hitting more rails than the big boys. The best trick event down the double set, big hubba, and the bank got the crowd screaming. One kid tre-flip 5-0’d the big hubba with a bottom grill in his mouth. Another board flipping guru landed a triple dolphin flip (or foward flip, or thunder flip whatever the hell you want to call it) down the bank. Mike at Progressive had quite a few brains to clean up off the floor because that kid BLEW MINDS.
