BURNSIDE GOES NON-PROFIT

We got an email from Burnside that deserved some play. Congrats to the park that started a DIY revolution for securing non-profit status. After all the work it’s about time! For more information on how to donate to the park go to www.burnsideskatepark.org

BURNSIDE SKATEPARK ACQUIRES 501(c)(3) NON-PROFIT STATUS

With the same passion that created the Burnside Skatepark, we strive to maintain and improve the park and its unique reputation, as well as develop and sustain park relations, allowing the park to engage the community and support the efforts of social justice.

Burnside Skatepark, built by skateboarders, for skateboarders, without prior city approval, is arguably the most famous skatepark in the world. The grandfather of the DIY skatepark building movement, the park has inspired countless renegade, skater-built projects, and played a vital role in the rebirth of the modern skatepark.

We are proud to announce that Burnside Skatepark has acquired 501(c)(3) non-profit tax status. All donations to the park are now fully tax-deductible.

Burnside has existed for 21 years through the efforts of innumerable dedicated volunteers and through donations from individuals, organizations, and companies just like you and yours. Please support the on-going maintenance and improvement of this landmark of skateboarding. Along with the addition of new board members, the newly obtained non-profit status and your donations will help carry Burnside into the future.

Donations can be made via paypal on our website, or through postal mail.

Keep skating, keep building,

“Built without permission, by skateboarders and later sanctioned by the city, Burnside is the preeminent example of action. Burnside’s unique growth and evolution -through the sweat and blood of a handful of dedicated individuals- have matured into one of the best skateparks in the world.” – skateoregon.com

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.

PINK MOTEL PARTY

 

PINK MOTEL PARTY

CALIFORNIA

OCTOBER 1, 2011

Beers, bros and the ultimate backyard, the Pink Motel… This party in the Pink was one good time for all. When you need a dose of the brotherhood of skateboarding, here it is. There was endless heckling and boards tapping on the coping all night long. Special guests included some of the heaviest characters in skateboarding with Rick Blackhart cheering and jeering every run, while Malba emceed and tried to control the flow of the session, and Duncan, Reategui, Ngoho, Skreech and a slew of hardcores partied their heads off. Badlanders massacred the deep end, while Lance Mountain provided decades of Pink Motel inspiration to the generations of skateboarders that got together for this bro-down. We could go on and make a giant list of names of all the pool warriors that were there and tell you how hard they all ripped, but check out this video instead and see for yourself. This is skateboarding.
