What is Low ATL?

 

Over the past year or so, there has been a ton of talk and social media promotion using the phrase and the hashtag “Low Atl”. But, it seems that not too much is known about what exactly Low Atl is or means. I have had a number of people come up to me with a lot of the same questions. “What does “Low Atl” mean?” “Is that a brand?” “Isn’t that the same as Lowcard Magazine?”

 

Ambush Low Atl

 

In translation, the term “Low Atl” means family. To be “Low” means to be down. We are a family of people who truly love skateboarding and who come together for one common passion. I say “we” because we are all considered “Low Atl”. Even if you aren’t from or living in Atlanta. It is a family of skateboarders. We have all started somewhere, and no matter how good you are or are not, there will always be people who will have your back if you are legit. Your legitimacy in skateboarding can be defined in infinitely many ways based off of everyone’s individual standards, but to me your legitimacy is defined by your passion. We all had to be shown the ropes at some point. You can’t learn everything all on your own. But, rest assured that if you always stick with something you are truly passionate about, then you will learn as much as you can on your own. The rest comes from listening to the ones who have been doing it longer than you.  They have the most experience and have shown dedication to the art. Even in skateboarding, your elders deserve respect.

Go Skateboarding Day 2013

Skateboarding is going off everywhere in 2013, and Go Skateboarding Day here at Ambush was no different.  Stormy was heatin’ it up on the grill, Space Orphan had ripping tunes, and everyone was killing it on the ramps and rails in the parking lot.  It’s pretty rad to see everyone progressing more and more each year.  Let’s keep it going kids don’t blow it.  Big thanks to all of our sponsors for holding us down as always; The Kayo Corp, Sector 9, Redbull Atl, Bender Hardware, Element, and Low Card Mag.  We couldn’t do it with out you.  Check the video above for some high lights from the session.  Remember, everyday is Go Skateboarding Day, so go out there and get some!

Ambush 24 Hour Challenge Entries and Results

Well, I think it is pretty safe to say that the Ambush Video Challenge (formerly 24 hours, changed to 60 hours due to weather) was a huge success.  Eleven teams with a total of 66 skaters showed up the morning of April 27th and spent the rest of the weekend out in the streets doing what they do best.  A huge thanks goes out to our sponsors, Deluxe Distribution and Lowcard Magazine, for holding us down with prizes for the winners; but most of all thanks to everyone who entered.  It was really awesome to see so many people out skating and having fun the way it should be done. None of this could have happened with out ya’ll.  So scroll down, check out all the entries, and if you didn’t enter we better see you next time!

Sick Picks – What We Like

The day’s delivery comes in. The crew all gravitates to the shipment as if the boxes have some sort of magnetic pull. Mostly, everyone wants to take a mental inventory of what we just got in. Others want to poke fun. But, every once in a while, we get some products in that really speak to us. You know, the ones that really get you pumped to ride. This week’s picks are pretty diverse, but I guess that is expected from a crew with a bunch of unique interests.

Sean Hance – Lib Tech TRS
“C2 is for me too. I love the rocker/camber combo. Grip when you need it, forgiveness when you don’t.”

 

Lee Elliott – Gnaraloo SUP
“I can’t wait to take my little grom out on the lake this summer, plop him on the nose of this thing, and tool around the water.”

Mazza Mondays: Been Slackin’

What up? It’s been a while since the last post. Been real busy with skating and working. Made a fun trip up to Chattanooga a couple weeks back. Made a stop by Comfort skate shop to say what up to the boys. Scoggins greeted us with some pretty sweet homemade beef jerky. Did some skating in downtown Noog. Skyler and Zeke got some pretty cool stuff.

Lately been trying to help Catnip get as much footage as possible. The guys over at Ambig said they would love for him to have some tricks in the new video dropping this summer called “Modern Art” so we’ve been going hard in the streets as many days as possible. Look out for Catnip cause he’s been killing it lately!!

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.

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.
