Juice Magazine was proud to be one of the sponsors of the first Westminster Van’s Bowl Jam in Superior, CO. Mark Chandler, event organizer wrote ‘We ran the event ‘jam-style,’ so everyone got to drop in and warm up at their own pace. People were going off! In addition to blistering grinds and warp-speed carves, the guys were throwing down rock-n-roll boardslides, frontside smiths w/reverts out, madonnas, fastplants, two-handed frontside airs, front/backside ollies off vert, frontside rock-n-rolls, crails, and tons of other sick moves. The top ten skaters won prize packages. The event ran every weekend through March and plans are in action for next year’s series. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details.

Back from the dead. Again. Jeff ‘mothra’ Grosso has been seen at long time ripper Mike Lohrmans’ ramp stretching inverts, and smashing lein to tails. In fact the sessions at Lohrmans have been off the hook! Jeff and the boys got everyone together and ‘re-did’ the whole ramp.

What’s up? I’m writing from Louisville, KY, home of the dopest skate park in the country and 25 foot full pipe. I just moved here from Santa Monica, CA to manage the very first skate hostel for all you out of towners . So check it. We’ve got a pool table, jukebox, some arcade games and all that stays open 24 hours a day and then for 17 bucks a night we’ll put you up in a bunk. We’re located directly across the street from skate park. The park is open 24 hours a day and requires no pads. If you think you got balls enough to come out here and check the park and show what you got and need a cheap place to stay, you can contact us toll free at 1-877-568-bunk or on the Internet at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out the place at www.sleepchamberlouisville.com
For the first time in history, a free skatepark with free to use boards exists in Grass Valley, California. On March 13, 2003 the city of Grass Valley became the first city to offer this benevolent service to its citizens. The skateboards are being provided through The Doogood Conservatory, a non-profit set up to provide under-privileged families with free skateboards and helmets during the holiday season and to provide free to use skateboards and helmets at participating skateparks all year round. The Skatepark of Tampa became the first private skatepark to offer these services almost a year ago, then last month The Skatelab in Simi Valley became the second and now, glorious Grass Valley becomes the first free public skatepark to offer free-to-use brand new completes with Indy Trucks, Bullet Wheels and Blitz Decks, not to mention the brand spankin’ new helmets provided by the fine folks at TSG. So far only Blitz and Nhs have stepped up to the proverbial plate and contributed. Do not sit idly by on the sidelines as others help, now is the time. If not now, when?—The goal is a hundred skateparks, each consuming 12 completes and pad sets a year. As well as 20 completes to 100 cities during the holiday season for distribution to the needy. An umbrella tax-exempt sponsor is in the works and then all contributions WILL BE TAX-DEDUCTIBLE. But, right now it is just for the kids…the ones with the Wal-Mart special who think that skateboarding sucks, because their equipment does…the ones who hang out at the parks and always ask to borrow your board… the one we all use to be– So, as the coveted 501c3 looms in the distance, The Doogood Conservatory continues to march on like a modern day Johnny ‘Skateboard’ Seed. Thank you for your time, an invaluable commodity we can never get back, Ari Evan Gold–founder – email@example.com or 530-386-2160

Here’s the latest update for the Tim Brauch Bricks… I want to thank everyone who’s already committed to buying bricks… Hopefully this won’t hinder anyone but the city decided they didn’t like the idea of companies buying up a ton-o-bricks to make huge logo’s. So we are now offering an 8′x8′ brick for $500 that can have a company logo or any other art work. There are no limits on the amount you buy and they will be spread though out the park. You can still buy the regular bricks but they will not be able to put art work on them so you will be limited to your company name and/or message. Thanks again for all the support. Please email me with any questions and I’ll try to follow up with everyone on Monday. So please fax your order form back to me at: Sessions Attn: Gold fax# 831-461-4680 or mail to Sessions Attn: Justin Gold – 60 Old El Pueblo Road Scotts Valley, Ca. 95066 Tim Brauch Memorial Fund

Jeff Ho was originally said to be partnered with Martinez on Z-Cult but rumors of Rocco’s involvement scared him away.
Z-Cult proceeds with the sole backing of a childhood friend of Martinez, but talk of ‘We’ll pick it up if it does good,’ coming from the Rocco corner has everyone waiting to see what will happen next. Austen Seaholm is the new am going pro for Z-Cult.

JUICE NEWS – AUGUST 2002
On the East side: The Brooklyn skatepark (NYC) is being sessioned hard by the likes of Rick Charnoski, Ivory Serra, Buddy Coan, Pat Smith, Andy Kessler, Rob Erickson, Bobby Puleo, and Dan Pensyl, working and ripping, with guest appearances from the 5.9 Crew and FDR locals.
The Asbury park pool is completely gone, so don’t think of ever trying to find it or even asking about it because Asbury park doesn’t even exist anymore. It went to heaven with the Nude Bowl.
The fourth of July at FDR witnessed Brewce Martin sporting a red white and blue cape, and matching shorts with Roman candles strapped to his board, entertaining the punk masses with frontal over vert attacks at mach speed. Philly locals Steve Foss and George Dragun ripped up the scene by assaulting the pool coping in the spirit of the day.
Attleboro is now being added to with a poured flint rock coping in the mix that Big Tim will mine from the hills of Simsbury CT. ‘ Sloppy Sam is honing his concrete skills and building a concrete park in Fitchberg MA.
Rye, New Hampshire skatepark opened with a huge indoor vert ramp, multiple street ramp complexes, cloverleaf mini bowl, and a small intermediate and 10 foot deep pool with pool coping. Unfortunately the pool was built one foot below water level because of an architect fucking up and the Carje masterpiece started to hold up to 2 feet of water after the spring thaw. Grand opening day they had a six foot tall pipe sticking up out of the drain to hold the water. A couple months later they installed pumps and now it’s ready to grind ‘ Chris Mearkle and Albequerque were working the Gravity Games in Cleveland Ohio with their wood building expertise. Free room and accomodations and a 5-to-7 happy hour with free beer for the boys. Needless to say Meark is very happy and is claiming that Cleveland is technically on the East Coast.
Andy Kessler just got the go to build a public skatepark on the Hudson River in Manhattan with $100,000 allocated. The park will have a replica of Jaime’s mini elbow bowl with pool coping all around and an oververt corner on the elbow that escalates up. Oh, and a street course.
Dan Zimmer is threatening to start a new skateboard company called Slut Skates. The tour will start in New Jersey and head north to the organic soybean fields of Vermont and then take a transatlantic flight to South Africa where Dan can take care of skateboarding business and check out his grape vineyard which he has been cultivating over the last five years after selling Brooklyn skateboards to an unnamed Enron executive.
Chops and Donkeypunch have been doing gigs and are preparing for the Big World concert on August 24th in Newport, RI. Water Bros. is up and running with guest star appearances by Sid Abruzzi.

For the first time in eight years, Juice is going to the newsstands. In seven to fourteen days, you should be able to go to your local independent skate shop, surf shop, music shop, and Borders Book Store, and Virgin Megastore to get a copy of Issue #54. The new cover price is $3.99 U.S. In order to get the newsstand distribution we had to increase the price, so we improved the cover paper quality and we went from 84 to 116 pages, and added white paper on the inside. We also arranged for international distribution during ASR so, soon you’ll find Juice all over Belgium, Canada, the U.K. and Japan.
This newsstand distribution was a big goal for us and we’ve turned down three offers to sell the magazine outright in the past six months. We made it – free of corporate control. Juice Magazine is still 100% independently owned and operated for the people and by the people.
Keep it punk,
Our thoughts are consumed with grief and anger over the attacks on our country on Sept 11, but we can channel our energies into a greater good. Go out and skate or surf or listen to some music. Celebrate your freedom. After work every day go and spend time at your local spot and talk to your friends. Keep the underground strong with communication. Keep working, keep skating, keep surfing and keep the music loud.
