Go Skateboarding Day is a brutal day for Arizona Skateboarders. The day lands on an evil time period where if you step outside during the day your blood starts to boil, eventually slow cooking your insides to a nice medium rare prime rib. Some say this was the inspiration of the crockpot! Luckily our good friends over at the Pressroom, a venue in the heart of downtown Phoenix, said it was cool if we built a mini ramp inside to have an 80s style jam with bands playing throughout the night! The stars where aligning and we reached out to John and Josh Hawkins last minute to build a perfect mini ramp, which is one of their specialties! Conor Holliday, an east coast transplant who we knew had been working really hard with his friends on making an all Deck Park skate video named "plAZa" had reached out to us for possibly helping him with a video premiere. We saw this as the perfect event to have Conors video premiere making it the headliner of the night! Now, all we needed was some bands so we reached out to local ripper and expert jam man Chocolate Mike and his band Loser Fur as well as one our very own Cowtown employees Matt and his band Thra to hold down the night. Everything was coming together and with the help from Emerica, Baker Skateboards, Bum Bag, Red Bull Thunder Trucks, Mob, Andale Bearings and the rest of the industry, we were able to secure the night with prizes and goodies for all! The Mini-Ramp Jam was a slaughterhouse of insane tricks and collisions making it a perfect spectacle for all to enjoy the while the bands played. After all of that we premiered "plAZa" which was a well-captured video of extreme tech and creative skateboarding. The night ended with a product toss of mayhem that initiated from a free t-shirt! Thanks to all who came out and enjoyed the night with us as well as our sponsors Emerica, Baker Skateboards, Mob, Red Bull, Thunder Trucks, Bum Bag and Andale Bearings! We couldn't have done this without the Pressroom, Josh and John Hawkins, Thra & Loser Fur, Conor and all his friends, cheers!
