Event Photos: National Go Skateboarding Day: Best Trick Contest – 6/21

Posted by Adrianne Behning | Jun 28, 2011 | Community/News

As part of Little Village‘s 10th Anniversary Celebration and National Go Skateboarding Day, local skate shop the Full Kit, which also turns 10 this summer, sponsored a best trick contest at the Iowa City Skatepark on North Dubuque. There was a large crowd out on this gorgeous day; it was warm, sunny, breezy and the reason for this gal’s first sunburn of the season. It was well worth it to see these fellas take flight on their boards. As things were getting going, the Little Village/Full Kit folks fired up the grill and started an assembly line of burgers and dogs – I mean, c’mon – what’s a day in the sun without a little fire-kissed meat to put in your belly? The day even included an appearance from Del the Funky Homosapien who, in true form, sat at a picnic bench working out some beats on his computer. There was also a bit of graffiti art going on in the shade at the park as Galen Driver and Tion Torrence (Funnyman Entertainment) worked on two large graff pieces that they would later donate to United Action for Youth. Well done, skaters and organizers, this was a lot of fun.

I'm not a big fan of skateboarding, but I am a big fan of these photos. Great job, as usual, Ms.Behning.
