Skateboarding is one of the greatest things ever. It truly is. Skateboarding gives one a sense of independence and freedom, it teaches us to never give up and to do it ourselves, it creates community, it opens doors of opportunity, and most importantly, it gives back – on many levels.
This past Saturday, May 25th, droves of skateboarders and skate enthusiasts from all over the country made their way to Arvada, Colorado to show their support of Dave Tuck who is battling cancer and to witness the high energy action of a skateboard contest in the impressive skatepark’s snake run. In the mix of the afternoon, the skatepark was abuzz with friends getting together to skate, watch some heavy skateboarding in the Camtest / King of The Snake event, and to generate funds for Tuck.
At the end of the 20-minute, 10-man final skate jam Josh Borden skated tough and fully earned the 2013 King of The Snake crown. Andy Macdonald landed in second place and Dalton Dern nailed down third place.
Many thanks to Cam Dowse for hosting this epic and meaningful benefit event for Dave Tuck and of course, all respect to the sponsors and those that made it a great day of skateboarding. Drop by facebook.com/camtest for more information. #thankyouskateboarding!
