Goodyear Sesh 2019 presented by Vans was one heck of a time! Our friends Madness Skateboards, Protec, Skate After School and Sheckler Foundation rolled out to make this year extra special.
Madness was shredding the big bowl while Ryan Sheckler, Manny Santiago, David Reyes, and Fabrizio Santos skated with the kids and signed autographs. Of course, there was the usual hijinx, like free pizza, giveaways, skate clinics, slams and DJ Cat Scratch Fever bumpin’ out the tunes.
What really put this year over the top is the Sheckler Foundation presenting the Skate After School program with a check for $10,000!!! This is huge for the Arizona skate community and we couldn’t be happier about it all.
Huge thanks to everyone that made it out to show their support and to our sponsors for making this all possible. Here are some photos highlighting the event, shot by JD Palmer and a video recap, filmed and edited by Tim Vasquez.
