Well as we all know June 21st is national Go Skateboarding Day, a day where skateboarders come together as one and skate our asses off from morning throughout the night.
Go Skateboarding Day
Over here at Ambush, we setup a fun little event. We had the legend Stormy Pruett whipping up the hot dogs and hamburgers, a bunch of flat bars, ledges, and ramps in the parking lot, free Red Bulls to keep the kids pushing all day long, Space Orphan playing live music, and a high ollie contest. Ambush’s very own Josh Butler took the high ollie contest. I’m not sure how high it was but it was high! lol

We also had the new Sk8Mafia video playing all day in the shop. All I have to say is WOW. This video is amazing. The skating is awesome. There are definitely multiple tricks in this video that I have never seen done before and they are all done with style! There have been a lot of videos that have dropped this year and this is gonna have to be my 2nd favorite right behind The DeathWish Video! Make sure to come out to the premiere at Jack’s Pizza on June 26th.
This concludes Mazza Mondays! Hope everyone is having a awesome summer! Enjoy the hot weather while you can because before you know it, its over! This ain’t California. We got winters here!
To kick off the release of the huge new Spring ’12 Vans apparel and shoe line, Vans sent the tour bus down to chill with us all day. Vitamin Water was there for the fun too which was much needed since it was molten hot all day.
We’ve chilled with Rob Dyrdek, we’ve hosted Baker, Fallen, Mystery, Real and many more, but on Saturday we got to hang with Ray Barbee, one of the most influential skateboarders of all time. OF ALL TIME! And the man couldn’t have been any cooler.
When I arrived, the parking lot and store were all ready out of control. With 20% off Vans products all day what would you expect? I whipped out the old Stevie Williams Ramp Logic box and the ledge slashing began immediately. Vans kicked off the contests with a best trick on the box, then gave out some free shoes to the kid with the most busted pair on his feet. A whole van full of product was given away throughout the day and the kids were hyped.
To top the day off, Vans grilled up some hotdogs while Ray Barbee signed his name a thousand times and sent the shredders off with a bag full of goodies. A big thanks to Vans and their crew for making Saturday a blast. If you missed it on Saturday, don’t beat yourself up too much. Just pop in the next chance you get. Ray Barbee won’t be here but all the sick new Vans shoes and apparel will be.
