Dave Hackett's Slash Fest


Dave Hackett’s inaugural Slash Fest took place Saturday at the Clairemont YMCA in San Diego. Lots of people showed up to support The Hackman, who's just recently beat a battle with Cancer. Dave Duncan was MC of the events, which included a street course death race, a high air contest on the vert ramp, and a bowl jam contest. Salba, Hosoi, Hewitt, Jay Adams, Omar Hassan, Darren Navarrette, Andy MacDonald, Bucky Lasek, Eddie Elguera, Steve Olson, and many more showed up. It was an epic day with music, Bull Taco, and some really good skateboarding going down. The event helped raise money for Dave, who's stacked up a large hospital bill.

    The Rumble is seven years strong and better than ever. Skate Rock, vertical destruction, and all of it fueled by the memory of P-Stone. Hell yeah!

    Legends and homies alike made their way out to RVCA's headquarters Friday night to welcome Christian Hosoi to their ever-expanding team. A heated bowl jam ensued, in honor of Ivan "Pops" Hosoi's 75th birthday. Add to that some artwork by Mark Oblow, tunes from Tommy G, free grub from Pizzanista and complimentary cold ones from PBR and the locals were in for a treat!
