Red Bull Illume – Piedmont Park – Atlanta, Georgia

Piedmont Park will play host to the Red Bull Illume each night from March 20th – 30th from sundown through 11PM. You can catch some world class photos from some of Red Bull’s finest photographers.  All of the photos are in big light boxes that are glowing throughout the park. During the opening event, Red Bull skydivers parachuted out of a plane and as soon as they landed all the light boxes lit up. I was able to make it out on opening night to capture the Ambush team riders skating the mini ramp and putting on a show on for the crowd. During their session, some of the Red Bull photographers shot some ill photos with them. After all the madness of skydiving and skateboarding, the Ambush Crew was able to get in the VIP party where all drinks and food were on Red Bull! It was pretty dang sweet. That pretty much sums up the whole night! Here are the photos of what I saw. And, Max made a sick edit of the night too.

March Radness Recap

 

This past Saturday we hosted the very first contest, called March Radness, over at the new Kennesaw Skatepark. We had no clue what to expect. We were just hoping for the best and biggest to turn out. I must say it was everything we were wanting and more! People of all age groups were there. Dads competing. Girls competing. Young and old bucks blasting huge airs. Moms and grandmas watching. And, the Vans Tour bus with Tony Alva rolled through. It was great.  Doing raffles throughout the day to keep families entertained. Multiple photographers and videographers covering the event. We really couldn’t ask for much more. After that, it was all up to the skating for the rest of the action, which I was able to get plenty of photos of for you guys to check out. Huge thanks to all the sponsors and people that helped make this contest bad ass!

R.I.P. Black Diamond Skatepark

In 2001, Discover Mills Mall was lucky to be blessed with an amazing skatepark designed by the one and only Camp Woodward. At the time is was named Woodward Skatepark. It had everything every skater dreamed of. It had handrails, kinked handrails, a foam pit, spines, vert ramp, mini mega ramp, euro gaps, and ledges of all sizes. Although it was such an amazing place, they struggled to stay open. The skatepark closed three times for months on end, collecting dust until someone stepped in to open it back up. It went from Woodward Skatepark to X Games Skatepark to United Skatepark, and it’s last label, Black Diamond Skatepark. About 2 months ago we heard rumor it was closing down for good. I didn’t believe it until I saw pictures of them actually taking the ramps apart. It was home to many amazing skaters like Travis Glover, Jordan Lucas, Warren Devarennes, and Anthony Dodaro. Those guys would probably not be where they are today if it wasn’t for that park opening. It’s always a bummer seeing a skatepark close. I was lucky enough to get out with some of the Ambush guys for one last shred! Here’s what we got. R.I.P. 2001-2014.

Ambush Mini Riot Presented by Red Bull – Full Recap

Screen Shot 2014-01-27 at 12.52.40 PMPeak retail season is over. The hard work is done and Mazza Mondays are back in full force. There is no better way to start off 2014 than with an awesome mini ramp contest! Early morning yawns and 30 degree weather aren’t enough to stop skateboarders from coming out to compete for $500 bucks! Huge thanks to Red Bull for putting the contest together and Jonah Owings from Hazard County Skatepark  for constructing a flawless mini ramp!

This is how the contest worked: two divisions (Cruisers and Shredders), 32 skaters in each division, 4 man heats with each rider getting two 45 second runs, and the best one advances. Second place winners earned $250 cash and first place winners earned $500 cash! People from all over came out to compete for that big purse money. Huge thanks to all the people and companies that came out to support the contest. This was probably one of my favorite contests that was have hosted so far. Well that’s enough rambling from me. I’ll let the photos do the rest of the talking!

Good Times N Great Oldies # 3

For this installment of Good Times N Great Oldies, we all headed up to Cartersville to check out the brand new Insanity Skate Park.  Jonah (owner of Hazard County skatepark and construction) invited us up to break in the park.  We got there just as Jonah was putting the finishing touches to the park.  It was pretty rad seeing the ramps, ledges and rails get the first marks laid down on them.  Big thanks goes out to the crew at Insanity for having us, and Jonah for building another kick ass park.  Check out how sick the park looks and all of the unique ways to use the walls in the video below.

Mazza Mondays: Fishing and Skating – It’s Summer Time

Here’s to another Mazza Monday.

A lot of fishing has been going on this summer. You can catch me on the water with Josh, Charlie, CatNip, and Max. We have been cranking them in. Fake worms, spinner baits, jigs, crank baits all seem to be working good. It’s summer time so the fish are destroying the top water baits, buzz baits, Pop R’s. Weightless worms are my favorite lures as of now. Ok, enough of the fishing BS.

Not only has the summer brought a bunch of fishing, it as well has brought a bunch of good skating! Even in this heat, we are out there all day long sweating our asses off ’til the sun goes down. This summer has been awesome! Catfish, Largemouth Bass, Kickflips, Back Tails, Back Smiths, beers, the beach, and friends. I can’t ask for anything better.
