Racked – Game Of S.K.A.T.E

The twentieth edition of the bi-annual Ambush Game of S.K.A.T.E. is happening this weekend. This marks ten years worth of kickflip battles, high ollie contests, and epic raffles. The weather is going to dip into the thirties early Saturday morning so you know the weather is going to shape up nicely. Add Stormy and a pile of product to give out, then you have a recipe for an epic game-of-skate.

Mazza Mondays: Halloweekend

This past weekend was real good. Josh Butler benefit was a great time. Thanks for everyone that came out and helped! Much respect even though we did see a couple pressure flips, completely stopped tricks, and some clowns not liking the judges calls. Well, at least we know now who didn’t read the last blog!

Let’s not forget that this was the official weekend of Halloween. So you know some weird s#!t was going down. The Spot: Sampson street. Never fails. Buddin had his first Sampson street experience. He definitely seemed like he enjoyed it.

Sunday was a dreadful day. With the sucky weather and Zeke‘s smelly ass socks stinking the whole house up. Everyone just kinda hung out played some COD and slept to recover from the previous night. That’s it for now here some pictures to enjoy.

Starting the day off with the man! Stormy!!!

Yoder filming the action, Josh watching the action, and Jeremy judging the action!

Ambig rep Ernesto came out for the support!

Catnip blew it today

Dustin Hart and Zeke Logan

Zeke smells like poop

Layin’ out the advanced rules.

Dustin Hart Nollie inward heelflippin’

Dustin Hart winning first in advanced! Good job, Dustin!

 

Gettin’ weird

Yo what’s up what’s good what’s happening? Nothing much over here just chillin’ with Stormy, Marvin, Brian, and Charlie at the shop today. Ready for the weekend to come up. Party, shred it up and other BS.

The Game of Skate is next weekend. I’d thought i’d go over a list of things of how to properly skate in a game of skate so we can make it an awesome enjoyable event for all of us.

1. Pop your tricks

2. SPEED. We don’t want any complaining when the judges don’t count your trick when you come to a complete stop when you land.

3. No pivots. Do your rotation tricks at FULL rotation. We understand you need to do a little bit of skirchin on some tricks. At the judges discretion though will determine if it counts or not.

4. No pressure flips. People are under the impression that if you can pressure flip that you’re good, when in reality doing pressure tricks is just an easier way of saying “Hey, I can’t do real tricks.”

5. Be cool and have a good time.

6. Request from Marvin: no circus tricks. No flatground indy grabs, no boneless (unless your Mike V.).

Over at the Shady Lane we got Pizza hooked up with a new liter box. He’s super hyped to be poopin’ good from here on out. Shady Lane era might be coming to an end, but Shady Lane V4 could also very well be in full force! Thats it for now. Peace!

Whos ready to be in this parking lot?

 

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 is  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.

Advanced Division

1st Place: John Goodwill; 2nd Place: Edgar Reyes; 3rd Place: Joey Robish

Intermediate Division

1st Place: Cole Keeter; 2nd Place: Dustin Sumner; 3rd Place: Richie Weathersby

Beginner Division

1st Place: Shawn Johnson; 2nd Place: Zarek Sparks; 3rd Place: Ernesto Garcia

Special thanks to all those who came out and supported the event. Extra special thanks to all the competitors, John and Daniel at Vans, Brooks at Volcom, the Skullcandy crew, Yuri at LRG, Brandon at Emerica, and Ken at Skununu.
