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 good times roll on and on, from the streets to the pool, and every park in between. With a crew this stacked, you know what to expect.

    New Zealand is a dreamland. Part one kicks off in the gnarly concrete pits before Grant seals the deal on a mountainous rail attack.

    There was too much heavy shredding for just one edit, so we made another. Thank you for the good times, Floripa. Until we meet again...
