It wouldn't do any justice to Mike Vallely or his millions of fans if we stuck him behind a table w/ a marker to sign for hours! Although Mike is without a doubt the most accessible skateboarder in the world and would sign a million posters, we had to crank it up a bit and have him involved in a demo. Taking it a step further, we threw in the public to skate with him and hopefully draw some blood out of the situation! And draw blood they did!
The stage was set at two lovely parks in Corona. Set around mountains, dairy farms, Huber and Harada skateparks were packed w/ fun loving skateboarders! The young guns got creative, as Mike V. highlighted different obstacles for them to perform maneuvers on. As we moved through each obstacle at the Huber Park it was becoming clear who a major stand out was. Nick Chism! He got a huge box of Active and Element gear. As did Anthony Pshebelski after shredding the Harada park to bits!
Honorable mention goes to the gnarlies Melvin, Dakota, Patrick, Tristan, spiked helmet kid, and Adrian! There were way more, but I didn't get their names! Thanks to Mike Vallely for making it happen, and Element team manager Ryan DeWitt for coming correct w/ a ton of Element gear, and for rockin' Dead shirts once in a while!! See you at the next one!!
