The Eric Koston Golf Tournament at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club went down a couple weeks ago and was a whirlwind of fun. Fact: Skaters love golfing and Eric Koston is no stranger to the game. Koston decided he wanted to do a charity golf tournament and Active assisted him in doing so. The Charity benefited the Dream Center Skatepark in Santa Ana, CA. and the Tournament raised $5,000 for The Dream Center.
The companies who came out to the event and participated were Ogio, Lakai, DVS, Transworld Magazine, TheSkateboardMag, Active, Nixon, Deluxe, Girl, Mystery and Team BK. The tournament was intense and maniacal at times, there was even a special appearance by Steve Berra. At the end of the day, there was only one team who could be named the winner and it was Ogio that came out on top. There was a raffle after the event where Photographer Lee DuPont won almost everything and Frank Gerwer went home with a brand new digital camera after almost putting out Koston's eye while celebrating.
Erik Ellington was also in the house playing on Deluxe's team and was playing barefoot and eating a lemon, skin and all, he picked from one of the trees on the course. It was a sight to see. Make sure you check out the photos to see all different perspectives on the event.
Ogio hooked everyone in the tournament up with a brand new golf bag and Atiba, Deluxe and Nixon all hooked up the winners with some sweet prizes as well.
Thanks to everyone who made this event possible and to everyone who was involved and made a contribution!
