Carbondale skateboard competition goes off
Hats off to Chris Johnson and Josh Meyer for bringing back competitive skateboarding to Carbondale! The Bonedale Sk8 Revival was a success. The turnout may have been on the small side, but the skills never failed to impress!
Four categories were represented by competitors ages 5 to 47. The winners in each group are as follows, listed first place to third. For the Grommits (ages 5 to 8): Oliver Smith, Ryder Bollock and Luke Rapaport. For the Skate Rats (ages 9 to 12): Nolen Johnson, Jacob Power Smith and Jackson Rapaport. For the Lil’ Rippers (ages 13 to 16): Alfonso Madrigal. And for the Dudes (17 and older): Kyle Olson, Casey Siers and Matt Sexton. Best trick went to Kyle Olson for a monster-sized, front-side graffiti wall bash.
Sponsors for the event included the town of Carbondale, Evergreen Skateparks, Bones, Fatbelly Burgers, X Games, Casual Culture and Sidewinders. Thank you so much to our sponsors for helping make the event happen!
Be sure to join us next year for the second annual event. In the meantime, stay tuned for a possible competition this fall!
And if you happen by the Carbondale Sk8 Park, make sure to check out the awesome mural that Chris and Josh painted for the contest!
