It’s enough the park is home to local legend Jamie Foy.
It’s enough the park is revamped with pro-level ramps and rails, but The Board’r to come in and hold an all out who’s who of south Florida skateboarding is ample icing on the cake! Oh, and Chad of Oh Cake was in the house too.
No matter the division, locals from Miami, Broward and Palm Beach took top slots in just about every division. In a place dominated by northern competitions by the like of Tampa and Jax, it’s relieving to see our local talents shine on their home turf(s).
Board’r put the event together in tandem with Grind For Life, the organization whose mission it to wipe out cancer, better known as “Skate & Destroy Cancer”. Ramp 48 staff did a stellar job accommodating skater needs in the hardware, service, food and service departments while Rob’s team went to work orchestrating another world class contest in our backyard. I’m pumped to have been in attendance.

Pics and vids coming soon, promise!
With guns blazing, Clint came out banging, at the finals of the sponsored division at the Valentine’s Day Massacre at Tampa skate park where a rare spectacle of talent as Douglas, Beswick, Hunt, Foy and Montoya took the course by storm. Pumping on adrenaline from hard-fought battles all afternoon long, these 5 showed why skateboarding is the REAL talent in sports these days. Assembled as a 5 minute jam, each skater used the park to carve out distinct niche’s in matching their talent across the course terrain.
Despite Beswick’s smashing run, Josh Douglas stole the show. He overpowered all, even Montoya to claim victory as the champion at Tampa’s VDM. Marcos Montoya was rocking it hard, but in the judges eyes, it wasn’t enough to grab the top platform on the podium. Jamie Foy and Dakota Hunt were on course to rank among the stars; placing 4th and 5th respectively.
The Sponsored Division finals are where Clint and Josh killed it along with Dakota, Jamie and Marcos. Here’s the video of that 5 minute jam.
The judges for the contest repped the Dickies brand all day long!
LAKE CITY, FL -A family is doing all they can to bring attention to the need for a skate park to be built in the community of Lake City in Florida. The plans started after a 9 year old boy and his dad began to imagine how great it would be for the kids to have a skate park built. So they went to the town officials and started the lobbying process to have a skate park constructed.
After a short period of time, they realized how difficult it was, and started reaching out to others who might of experienced similar dismay. they contacted the Tony Hawk Foundation, and had architecture renderings of the “park” drawn.
This is a 20,000 sq ft facility that will have a 5ft x 24ft mini vert, 13ft x 52ft vert ramp, 9ft deep and 6 ft shallow pool and plenty of flow for all skill levels. This facility will cost between $850k – $900k.
After a few meetings with the town prolonged their desired result, they rethought their plans and decided to go “BiG”. That’s when they reached out to Tony Misiano, skate park developer and architecture guru to help with their plans. Now they have some initial drawings on how the park might be built. But their story is just beginning and we are trying to get the word out for them, so if anyone can help these guys out, please reach out to them, here: Organizer Lawrence Lerwick email@example.com
Please Attend Our Town Meeting on January 20th at 6pm!!!!!
The following information are those who people can contact to express their wishes to have this built and for competitions to be held there as well.
