Given that amazing history and skating there growing up, I was all about getting one of our great events set up on the beach for a long time. Now with our Flagship store being opened in Santa Monica, teaming up with eS for the, hands down, biggest and best flat ground tournament in the World, was a perfect fit in honoring the deep respect we have for the Venice Beach skateboarding heritage. Mark Waters from eS secured the permits and the date was set.
The turn-out was mind blowing. We had about 200 competitors and couple thousand plus spectators. The eS crew did an amazing job running the contest and the Active Hessians crew got down with the Venice public. The talent pool was deep and I was impressed with a lot of positive attitudes. I didn't get the name of the winner, but from my vantage point, everyone on that Beach was a winner. Cheesy, I know, but sometimes things really do come together sweet when you have people who are passionate and our passion is the promotion of skateboarding. Thanks Mark Waters, Shane Wallace, and all my boys in the Hessians club!!!
