What’s Happenin’


Slow update week, I know. But something is brewing in the kettle right now, don’t worry. Here’s some junk that’s going on in the next few weeks.

The éS Game of Skate is on this Wednesday, July 25 at Tompkins Square. It would probably be in your best interests to show up before 1 if you’re trying to enter. Click here for the schedule for everywhere else in the world.

If you want to try to skate the banks with a million other people, the Back to the Banks event is happening on Saturday, August 11th at 1PM. Click here for the flyer. Sponsored by Volcom, 5Boro, Spitfire, Skateboarder Magazine, Red Bull and Emerica. It’s a best trick contest and a “skate jam” of sorts.

You didn’t hear this from me, but the mysterious Chapman video and Static III are being double-premiered this September at the Houston Street theatre. Miles Marquez does a pop shove it over a gap in the Chapman video, but don’t tell anybody…

Back to the Banks 2006

They’re having another best trick contest at the banks this year. It is on Saturday, August 19th @ 1PM. There are three seperate contests: on the steps/rail, on the ledges and on the banks/wall. Sponsored by 5boro, Volcom, Emerica, Spitfire, Skateboarder Magazine and Red Bull. There’s a few thousand dollars worth of prizes being given away to the winners.
