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.

RIPPER ALERT – CHADD POLLOCK

Ditch, Rails, Bowls or Street. It doesn’t matter. Check out Chadd Pollock from Kansas City. This video makes you want to go skate the world. It would seem that what drives Chadd is not tricks or even planning out lines. It truly looks like his board is his brush and all the terrain he rides is his blank canvas. There are very few skateboarders who show this type of spirit in their style while bridging the generation gap of maneuvers from the simplicity of a stylish turn to the complexity of switch firecrackering a set of stairs. I think it’s fair to say that Chadd Pollock is a name more and more skateboarders will soon recognize. We look forward to more from Chadd in the future. Go Skate!

HAROLD HUNTER DAY V – NOVEMBER 12, 2011 – NEW YORK CITY

The Harold Hunter Foundation (HHF), in association with primary sponsors Zoo York, Vans, HBO and Camp Woodward, is proud to announce the 5th Annual Harold Hunter Day will take place Saturday, November 12, 2011, at the L.E.S. Skatepark in New York City.

Established in 2006 after Harold’s untimely passing, and managed by the non-profit Harold Hunter Foundation, Harold Hunter Day V will once again unite NYC’s tight-knit skate community for a positive day of skateboarding, camaraderie and remembrance.

Harold Hunter was a legendary New Yorker with a larger-than-life personality and altruistic nature that enabled him to touch the lives of countless people around the world.  Each year HH Day commemorates a life well lived by celebrating the things Harold loved most – skateboarding, music, friends, family, and of course, New York City.

“I look forward to celebrating five years of remembering Harold’s life at this year’s HH Day,” says Steve Rodriguez, 5boro Skateboards Founder and Harold Hunter Foundation Board Member.  “Ever since I participated in my first HHF project years ago, I knew it was an organization I wanted to continue working with.  The impact that the HHF has on the kids involved is simply too great to not be a part of it.”

On Saturday afternoon, November 12th, Harold Hunter Day V will kick off at the L.E.S. Skatepark on the corner of Pike and Monroe Streets under the Manhattan Bridge in Chinatown.  An all-ages skate jam will run from 1:00–5:00pm and feature product giveaways, appearances by pro skateboarders, live music from DJ Smoke L.E.S., and pop-up “Best Trick” contests with prizes including a one-year supply of Zoo York apparel and other gear from event sponsors.

Immediately after the skate jam, an after-party will be held at Max Fish at 178 Ludlow Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side.  The gathering will be open to the public (21+ only) with live beats provided by DJ Smoke L.E.S. and friends.

As a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Harold Hunter Foundation relies on support from the skate community and related affiliates to achieve its mission of using skateboarding as a vehicle to give inner-city youth with valuable life experiences that nurture individual creativity, resourcefulness and the development of life skills.

With this principal goal in mind, a limited edition Harold Hunter Day V t-shirt designed by Mark Nardelli from 5boro, and a skateboard deck crafted by Sam Wilson from With A Mouse Design, will be sold at the event with proceeds benefiting the Harold Hunter Foundation.  Both items will also be available post-event at select New York skateshops.

Harold Hunter Day V is made possible through generous support from event sponsors Zoo York, Vans, HBO, Camp Woodward, Supreme, Cottonmouth, ProSport Wellness, SHUT, Paradox, BONES Wheels, Bones Bearings, With A Mouse Design, Prographix, The Professionals: NYC Sound Company, and the collective New York City skateboard community.
