Upcoming Event: DNA Midwest Footwear Show

midwest_show

This looks like a cool event to go to if you get the chance. There is going to be a grip of pros (as listed above) and if you’re a sneaker/art head you’re going to be in for a good time. The CAC always puts on good exhibits and has featured skateboarding a time or two before, one event even had The Hot Chocolate Tour playing on a couple of the TV’s and it had artwork,boards,and photography done by pros, photographers and the like.
I don’t think I’m going to get a chance to make it to it but if any of you do, feel free to email me pictures at OhioSkateUniv@gmail.com
The details are on the flier but if you need more information click more for links that can help you out if you need it.

eS Game of Skate Austintown,OH and Mike Nypaver Sighting

            July 22nd2009 eS footwear came to Austintown/Youngstown, OH on their national leg of the eS Game of Skate tour. The eS Game of Skate was originally created in 2003 and has since expanded. This is the fourth year in a row that the tour has had an official event in Ohio. The years and places are as follows:

2006-Cleveland, OH/Westside Skate Shop.
2007-Kettering, OH/DC Skate Plaza.
2008-Austintown,OH/Stomping Grounds Skate Park.
2009-Austintown,OH/Stomping Grounds Skate Park
.

            A game of S.K.A.T.E. is similar to the game of H.O.R.S.E. in basketball, someone makes a shot(or trick), the other person has to do it and if they miss, they get a letter. For those of you already familiar with the game here are some rules that may differ from your own or are contrary to your belief:

No landing tricks one-footed or cross-legged(the guy in charge said it just looks bad).
A trick must be popped(which means no sliding your big spins and no pivots on the cabs).
A shifty is an ollie, doing a shifty with a flip gets you nowhere, your opponent only has to do what you did minus the shifty.
Lastly, in contradiction to the berrics, you do not get two tries on the last letter.
This last rule is most likely the reason why the matches went so quickly.

That is the background information, now to the day…
