Rumble Recap

Words and Photos: Schmitty

The Rumble In Ramona went down October 17-18, 2008. Where the fuck is Ramona you ask? I'm claiming it's the Turlock of San Diego—about an hour east in the cuts. Basically the idea was to build a vert ramp, have a big session, drink lots of beer, and have a good time with the end result being Darren and his homies would get a free vert ramp. Well shit worked out and trophies were awarded. Whether or not it made history, we'll let you decide...

    A couple weeks back, Element surprised Tom Schaar with his very own pro skateboard after filming a Skatepark Round-Up. Check out some photos here.

    These Masher edits are about more than the skating in front of the lens, they’re also about the man holding the camera and blazing through the bowls at mach speed. Hell yeah, Gregson!

    Backyard ramps are the best! No pads, no rules, no kooks – all fun. The legends and the locals gather for one last blast on Brighton’s swing set. Thanks Zeuners!

    Warning! Aggressive, messy and chaotic! Larbfest celebrates the bands that provide the soundtrack to our skateboarding. Having a session before the gig is a standard ritual, but this time we turned it into a little mission from Minneapolis to Milwaukee, harvesting parks and spots in between gigs. Turn it up and check it out! —Hitz
