Ambush Demo @ Found Skatepark

Friday August 31st the Ambush team headed up north to Found Skatepark to show off the goods and give away some goodies. This was the first time up there for most of us and I have to say that the park is pretty damn sweet. The guys over at Found made good use of a smaller sized space and the park flows like butter. I know the Found is pretty far from home for you local Ambush dudes, but we saw a few familiar faces up there (which is awesome) and met a whole bunch of new rad kids as well. Hopefully, this video will hype some of you to drive up to Ellijay and give it a whirl.

Big thanks to Mike and the whole Found crew for having us, and an even bigger thanks to all the kids and families who showed up in support. Hope you guys had as much fun as we did!

Atlanta’s Travis Glover

Atlanta has a rich skateboarding history. Thomas Taylor held the city down in the 1980′s. Stormy Pruett ran things in the 1990′s. Jeremiah Babb reigned during the new millennium. And Grant Taylor won Skater of the Year in 2011. Now it’s Travis Glover‘s turn.

Has anyone noticed how much play Travis has been getting lately? Of course he was featured in the latest Ambush video montage.

Plus, he’s popping up in all kinds of places. Check his latest appearances in the Zoo York blog. Or his feature in Focus. Better yet, check the shit he threw down in Focus’ Premium Cut:

If that doesn’t make you want to try a Zoo York board, maybe this will.

Josh Butler Benefit Jam

Not many people can survive a gunshot wound. Those that do must either be extremely blessed or one of the toughest dudes in the world. Josh Butler seems to be both.

Josh is recovering in record time. Less than three months ago, Josh was laid up in a hospital bed with tubes and bags coming out of his chest, stomach, and intestines. The doctors were unsure if he would survive let alone skate again. With the grit and determination found only in a strong few, Josh found a way and should be back on a board soon.

Physically, Josh is recovering nicely. Financially, the aftermath is still havinging over his head. Josh has ammassed an astronomical amount of medical bills and he needs your help. You and Josh share a common love of skateboarding and through that love you can help him get his life back to normal again. By competing in the Josh Butler Benefit Jam, you will be helping out a fellow skater in his time of need. This contest is not simply about being the best on a skateboard. This contest is about being the best human you can be.

Every penny from the Josh Butler Benefit Jam will be donated to the Josh Butler Medical Fund. Every cent collected in the form of contest entry fees or raffles will go towards making his life whole again. Registration is now open at both Ambush Board Co. and Progressive Skatepark. Sign up now, compete against your friends, win prizes, and make a positive impact in a fellow skateboarder’s life.

Compete in the Josh Butler Benefit Jam on Saturday, March 3rd at Progressive Skatepark. The contest kicks off at 6:00 pm. Entry fee: $20 for product jam, $10 for best trick, $10 for mini-ramp jam.

Black Friday Sale

A couple of my friends are leaving their respective Thanksgiving celebrations early to camp out at Best Buy for some ultra cheap TV. They are spending their turkey day not with family…but in a parking lot. Why? To save money.

We are a little more sane here at Ambush. We are having a nice little Black Friday Sale where you can save a bunch of money. But…we won’t make you stand in line for hours and get trampled by the big box barbarians. This sale is for everyone and it lasts all day.
