Scotts Valley, CA September 29, 2009- This weekend Sessions kicked off the 11thAnnual Tim Brauch Memorial Skateboarding contest at the Scotts Valley skatepark in Scotts Valley, CA. This year was one of the biggest years yet with over 120 skaters from the grom to grandmasters level and they were destroying the courses. On Saturday the groms and ams got down on the street contest competing for a ton of great prizes from our sponsors. The bangers were out that day in the amateur division showing off some sick tech skillz and killing all aspects of the street course. Are 360 flips the new kickflip? I don’t know why but it seems that everyone has those dialed these days and so steezy. DJ D’Funkt mixed it up the entire day and kept the kids rollin’. Saturday was finished up by the premier of Supercharged, the documentary created on Tim Brauch’s life.
On Sunday, day two of the contest, we switched up the park to the Lake Cunningham Regional Skatepark in San Jose, CA and prepared for the heavy hitters in the Girls, Local, Pro, and Grandmasters divisions. All competed in the sixteen foot skull bowl to take home the 1st place prize purse hosted by the World Cup of Skateboarding. Hosoi and Caballero ended up in the finals battling it out for first place but Hosoi’s continuous 6-foot blasts out of the skull bowl couldn’t match Cab’s flow in this round. Cab stole the show with his unreal flow and buttery slides leaving the judges with no other choice but to put him on top of the podium. Bands such as No Use For A Name, Clay Wheels, Whiskey Sunday, Shitkickers, and Street Core performed live through out the day as well as DJ RS2 who mixed it up for us in between sets. In addition, local artists came out to display their work for the day. The turn out was great this year and we appreciate everyone that came out to support Tim Brauch!
To finish the weekend up right Wahoo’s Fish Tacos through an amazing after party that had a special live performance by Rs2 Solid Sound. Thank you to all of our sponsors, especially Etnies, Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, and Skullcandy, and to everyone who made this event possible!
