In my opinion, there is only one thing to do on a perfect weather day. That is go skate. Cool, blue skies, a light breeze and fresh Georgia air got me out of the house real quick. I rounded up a couple of the Ambush boys Wes and Zeke as well as the good homies Dakota Plumley and Brenden Lagna. We all met up at the new Kennesaw Skatepark to start a sweet day of shredding. We put in a solid 5 hours of non stop skating. Here is a little montage to show what we got!
What’s up everyone? Ambush is proud to announce that it will be hosting the first contest at the new Kennesaw Skatepark called March Radness. No mushy flat ground game of skate. This is REAL street/pool style skateboarding for your eyes to see. This is your chance to show Ambush what you got and show the City of Kennesaw why it was such a good idea building this park. Don’t wanna compete? It’s free to watch and come hang out with the Ambush crew. There will be tons of talented locals putting on a awesome show! Big thanks to all the sponsors that help contribute to making this contest happen!
Check out the trailer to see just a glimpse of the action that will be going down!

It’s still summertime and I’m living the good life.
Last weekend I rode the MegaBus up to Nashville, TN with Max and CatNip. Boy was that a good time. We did a lot of skating, met the Fully Torqued RV Tour guys and partied our asses off. To give you the info on the Fully Torqued RV Tour, it’s Clint Walker’s RV that he is living in for a whole year. Clint is traveling the U.S with people from the Ambig and Birdhouse teams. Clint Walker, Clive Dixon, Dirty the Photographer, Trevor Vaughan and filmer Trevor Owens were all out on the road together. Clint has a cousin that lives in the boonies of TN with a bunch of land. So, Clint was nice enough to pack the RV full of the three of us and all the Nashville homies and take us out there. Chugging, grilling out and shooting mad fireworks! It was an awesome time. Big thanks to Clint!
This was Intense
It seems the Kennesaw Skatepark is coming along real nice like! I’m hyped for it to be finished. I wish they were sticking to the original design though. Oh well. It’s still going to be a fun place to skate. By the way, it’s looking it should be done within a month! I can’t wait to seeing everyone up there.
And last but not least, I’m kinda bummed right now that I couldn’t make it down to Tampa, FL to see the Black Sabbath concert. Literally EVERYONE went! All the Ambush dudes and their girls plus a few more. Oh well. Hopefully they will get some good videos and photos! Well, that’s it for this Mazza Monday! LATER!
As all of you know this past weekend was the Legacy Game Of Skate. As usual, we had a great turn out, great music, and great people skating, watching, and working the event. Rumor out there that this might have been the last Game of Skate. We might be taking all of our new skate contest to Swift Cantrell Skatepark when it opens. Only time will tell. Big congrats to all of the winners! Lets see who all came out:
Jeremy Williams IN DA HOUSEEEEEEEEEEEE
Taco Bell’s finest JUAN up in hereeeeee
“Can I stick my middle finger up? Is this going online? I hope my mom doesn’t see this or she will hit me with a switch or a paddle.” – These kids’ moms.
That about sums it up for the many faces that came out to the Game of Skate. This weekend Max and I will be heading down to Tampa for the Tampa Pro! Always an awesome time in Tampa! Well time to get ready for that PEACE!
Yep boys, its that time. The Legacy Game of Skate is coming up. Will it be the last one? Only time will tell. I’m linking a link of a PROPER game of skate. Just to keep you guys in check!
The Kennesaw skatepark is finally in the works! Cant wait til its done! Big thanks to everyone who is making it happen! We at Ambush are hyped!
I wanted to give a big thanks to Travis Glover and RB Umali over at Zoo York for hooking me up with a lens for my Canon 60d! That should be in sometime this week. So look forward to see photos/video of Travis and all the other Ambush team riders!
It seems the Ambig video Modern Art is done! Can’t wait for it to be sick! Hopefully our very own Trey Abad (a.k.a. Catnip) made the cut! We will find out soon!
Well that wraps up Mazza Monday for today! Now its time for some Zaxby’s!!
