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 Pala Pool in SD County is one of skating’s most epic pits. After being loaded with dirt for years, it was revived for a hot minute before authorities buried it once again. Grab a shovel!

    KR3W took it to the Northwest for eight days. Canada is not the easiest country to get into but after some border madness the trip was on. Here are some extra photos from the trip that's in the January 2016 issue. Full video coming Monday.
