Interview: Marty Murawski

Marty Murawski at the Cowtown Showdown

Marty Murawski seems to be described in the same way by everyone who has ever met him: laidback and funny. I got to meet Marty during the weekend of the Cowtown Showdown and (thanks to Tedd Cookerly) I got the chance interview him. After doing so, I can agree with the aforementioned description. The whole weekend Marty had a smile on his face and could be found making jokes and skating around with the kids. I can’t forget to mention that his laidback style melts over into his skating, which makes for some pretty fluid manual tricks. Now, I’ll spare you the ongoing description and let Marty do the talking for himself…

Cowtown Showdown Day 2

JPSkates team getting ready to compete

The second day had 4 different competitions in the schedule: Amateur Beginners, Amateur Advanced, Best Trick and Sponsored. I have video of some of the runs so I’ll post the complete competition results with the videos. I started out the day by saying hi to a few people including Greg Patton from JPSkates and found out he checks out the site just about everyday and tells people to visit it. Thanks Greg!

Cowtown Showdown Day 1

Columbus at 9:30 in the morning

After the party I didn’t get to sleep until sometime after three and woke up around 7:30. When I got into the building I had to wait around a little bit while all the waivers and wristbands were being processed and I talked to a few new people and some people who were at the bar last night, recounting the night’s events.

Smith grind on the Kickstand Pub mini-ramp

 After the signing at Old Skool we went to the Cowtown Showdown pre-party at Kickstand pub. This is the first and only bar in Columbus to have a mini-ramp in it and I was told they hold weekly skate nights.

Blueprint Signing @ Old Skool Skateshop

Marty Murawski, Fred Gall(Habitat) and Paul Shier

This event literally brought in a crowd of all ages. Adults, teens, and even a toddler. It was pretty low key and the guys hung around afterwards killing time until the party at Kickstand(stay tuned for photos) by eating KFC and small talk and stories from the team. Paul told us about how he was driving through LA the other day and he looked over at a bus stop and saw an old man dressed in all black with the top half of a mannequin on his lap dressed in black with a black wig and the two (man and mannequin) were carrying out a conversation.
