Mission Skateboard Contest

Hippie Mike’s super tour 2016 started out in Mission, BC. It was the grand opening of the new Mission Skatepark.

The day was very eventful. Skaters from all across the mainland came to Mission to skate in the contest. Minis, Beginners, Intermediates, and Advanced came out to show what they can do.

The park is smooth and fast. The concrete bowl is flowing and the street part is nicely spaced and has lots of obstacles.

Watch the video to see who is in the running for this year’s Super Tour Crown.

Protest Skateboards Contest 2012

In late September 2012, Protest skateboards put on a backyard skateboard contest.

The first part was an obstacle contest on a Fridge. This was incredibly hard to skate. The few tricks that were landed were super hard to do. The winner was a feeble stall on the top of the fridge.

Then the Mini Ramp Jam started. The little ramp had an interesting bend in the middle. Don’t know what I mean, watch the video.

Song: Supernaut

Griffin Skatepark 2011

In this episode we go to the Griffin skatepark in North Vancouver, BC. This is the second stop of the Vancouver Bowl Series.

This local bowl contest has had a long history. 17 years of contests at all of the major bowl style skateparks around BC.

The Boarding House skateshop (RIP) started this series. After closing its doors, the local skate community has picked up the cause. Local skaters have organized the contest every year since. No financial interest. No cool guy credit. No big sponsor paycheques. Just a strong love of skateboarding drives these contests.

Respect.

Canada Day 2011 Seylynn Skatepark

Canada Day has always been a cause for celebration. Celebrate the birth of the nation of Canada.

What better way than getting together with a few hundred skaters and starting the Bowl Series 2011? This year was a beautiful day filled with skating, drinking, fireworks and some crashes.

The contest itself is loosely organized and judged on a scale of Rad. The big winners each year aren’t the Advanced or Sponsored guys. Its the Beginner category that walks away with armloads of gear to stoke them out and keep them interested. Always remember to support the generation behind you.

Thanks go to all this years sponsors: RDS apparel, Skull Skates, Vans Footwear, Sector Nine and many more that I can’t remember. Oh yeah “Auto Repairs R Wee” gave away shirts and decks. Wee, you’re awesome! Thanks for fixing my truck.
