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…

Alumni Visit: 1031 at Ohio Surf And Skate on Go Skateboarding Day

June 21st, I continued my travels by going to Willoughby, OH to Ohio Surf and Skate (a skate shop) for a 1031 demo. Ohio Surf and Skate had ramps set up in the parking lot for the occasion. 1031 is a skateboard company that was created by a Cleveland native by the name of Kristian Svitak. He has been a professional skateboarder for around 10 years, I believe, and tours yearly with his company. This specific summer tour is to celebrate team member Ben Raybourn becoming pro for 1031. Ben Raybourn won the bowl contest in the 2007 Texas Skate Jam and is definitely someone to look out for on the come up.
