SKATEPARK NEEDS A POWER WASHER

The skatepark needs a new power washer to keep the park clean. Jesse Martinez and the VSA donate their time every day to make sure the park remains clean and skate-able 365 days a year. Help ’em out with a donation if you can.

THE OTHER VENICE FILM FESTIVAL

THE OTHER VENICE FILM FESTIVAL

at Beyond Baroque Foundation, Venice, CA
October, 13-16, 2011

Featured films included the Allen Sarlo documentary Work to Surf and the Dogtown farce film, Day at the Pool.

Allen Sarlo, aka “The Wave Killer”, aka “The King of Mailbu”. Allen was surfing by age 6, at 14 he was surfing the infamous “Cove” at the POP pier. The film, “Dogtown, Z Boys” documented his adolescence and captured a celluloid preview of his athletically intense surfing style. In 1974, at 16 Allen took first place at the prestigious Malibu 4-A contest, to the chagrin of the older surfers. He tells his adventure as a surfer and the many contests he wins. The surf life style film “Work to Surf” is Allen’s latest adventure, it’s a bio documentary with a ‘feel good’ message. Allen is an active member of Surfrider Foundation, rallying over the years for cleaner water at Malibu’s “Surfrider Beach”.

A Day at the Pool is a documentary-style film that attempts to uncover the true origins of modern skateboarding. Interviews with Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta, Jay Adams and the rest of the Dogtown Crew reveal that an anonymous local kid may have been largely responsible for the skateboarding revolution that lead to their success in the late 70s.

SONIC GENERATIONS OF SKATE CONTEST

SONIC GENERATIONS OF SKATE CONTEST
VENICE BEACH, CA

OCTOBER 22, 2011

For the 20 year anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog game from Sega, ASA entertainment teamed up with the makers of Sonic and Sega to put on a vert contest in Venice Beach, CA. The concept was to bring together skateboarders from three different age ranges to compete in Sonic Generations of Skate.

CONTEST RESULTS:

First Place: Tony Hawk (first generation), Andy Macdonald (second generation), Mitchie Brusco (third generation)

Second Place: Kevin Staab (first generation), Sandro Dias (second generation), Paul-Luc Ronchetti (third generation)

Third Place: Steve Caballero (first generation), Pierre Luc Gagnon (second generation), Elliot Sloan (third generation)

Fourth Place: Sergie Ventura (first generation), Lincoln Ueda (second generation), Adam Taylor (third generation)

The disciplines by which the teams would be judged included High Air, Best Trick, Individual, and Doubles.  The doubles ended up turning into triples a few times and it was epic.

There were a ton of highlights throughout the day including Sandro Dias landing the first 900 in Venice Beach History.  It was a bit surreal to see this level of skateboarding just paces away from where skateboarding cut its teeth on the unforgiving proving grounds of the now defunct concrete stage known simply as The Pit.

Speaking only in terms of skateboarding, the historical merit was undeniable, and as far as disciplines go this group of skaters are the top elite of modern-day vert skating. While the vert session was going off, the session in the pool at the Venice Skatepark adjacent was heated as well.

This was not a contest with a huge prize purse, yet it didn’t stop the skaters from pushing their own limits. Mitchie Brusco landed his first ever kickflip varial 540 during the best trick contest and everyone went nuts. Elliot Sloan added to the madness with a 720 tailgrab.  Sergie Ventura threw up a 50/50 body varial to switch 50/50 to fakie.  Tony Hawk pleased the crowd with his signature ollie 540 and a kickflip McTwist.  During the doubles/triples section Mitchie, Tony and Andy went for synchronized 720’s and almost pulled it.

It was another great day in Venice Beach skateboarding history. It’s kind of crazy to think that Sonic the Hedgehog by Sega is 20 years old and is still as exciting to kids today as it was for us kids 20 years ago. Props to ASA and Sega for throwing a great event. For more information on Sonic Generations of Skate visit www.sega.com/sonicskate.
