Clash at Clairemont went down last Saturday, June 1rst and I had a blast! This event benefits the YMCA Krause Family Skatepark and Grind For Life, a great charity that helps families with the high cost of fighting cancer. This event, in it’s seventh year, merged with the Sonic Generations of Vert contest.
The day starts with an amateur contest, ends with music and skating in the pool and is filled with amazing skateboarding and BMX riding. Booth village was filled with great companies supporting the effort to raise money to fight cancer. This year was the best Clash to date if you ask me. Continue reading →
This is some seriously amazing stuff. This video is approaching a million views on it’s first day! I can’t even name half these tricks but some that stood out to me were the upside down grind, the lay back roll under the semi trailers and that crazy vader type roll across the car. Tim, you freaking rule man!
This event is also what got me started with my own site. I covered Clash 2&3 for the Clairemont Community News. Looking back on it now, I was completely starstruck to have access to this event, the skaters and BMXers. Leading up to the fourth Clash I jumped blindly into the blogoshpere with enthusiasm and a willingness to try. That eventually lead to Sore Eye Sports. I still cover the event for CCN and will as long as they’ll let me. Continue reading →

Gap, pegs, tooth? Are you kidding me? The best part isn’t even any of that, the message it what rules the most: the world is a playground, BMX is fun right?
