Skateboarding Across America – On Board For Lowe Syndrome – Press Release from Jack Smith – On August 2nd, 2003 myself and three friends will begin pushing our skateboards 3000 miles from Oregon to Virginia. We will make this crossing in a little over three weeks. This world record attempt will draw attention to a rare disease called Lowe Syndrome. My fourteen year old son, Jack Marshall Smith, passed away May 6th, 2003 due to complications resulting from Lowe Syndrome. www.lowesyndrome.org/ My son has been an incredible inspiration to myself and many others, whose lives he has touched. This is my chance to pay him back for all that he has taught me. Myself, along with friends Paul Dunn, Bob Denike, and Gary Fluitt set the world skateboard distance record nearly twenty years ago when we completed the transcontinental skate in 26 days. This time it will be a lot harder we’re all a fair bit older now, we have jobs and families, and pushing a skateboard 150 miles a day won’t be quite as easy this time around. We are currently seeking sponsors for the trek. All proceeds generated from pledges will be donated to The Lowe Syndrome Association. The cross-country team consists of myself, Nick Krest, Paul Dunn and Gary Fluitt. My employer www.justpushplay.com, a division of VAS Entertainment is a major sponsor of the trek. In fact VAS Entertainment president, Jeff Reynolds, plans on skating several days with the us. Professional skateboarders Tony Hawk and Andy MacDonald have also expressed interest in joining the team for a day of skating. For more information on Skateboarding Across America – On Board for Lowe Syndrome or to make a donation, visit: www.ncdsa.com/contest_registration.asp?ContestID=101. Thank you for all your support. Sincerely, Jack Smith and the Skateboarding Across America – On Board for Lowe Syndrome Team. Email: [email protected]
SPAUSA Brings Action Sports to Inner City Games August 8 – 10- LA Event Seeks Participation and Donations – LOS ANGELES, July 18, 2003 – The Skatepark Association of the United States of America (SPAUSA), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing youth with safe places to skate and bike, will bring action sports to the Inner City Games for the first time. The Los Angeles area event, to be held August 8 – 10 at the Hollywood Sports complex in Bellflower, will feature skateboarding and BMX clinics, jam sessions and competitions, and is actively seek participation from athletes, manufacturers and retailers. We’re excited to be working with the Inner City Games and the groundwork is laid for a successful event, said Heidi Lemmon, Executive Director of SPAUSA. But, the more involvement we have from others in the skateboarding and BMX industries, the more memorable the event will be for the kids. This is a great way for people to give back to the industry and to a great group of kids who could really benefit from a weekend of fun. Any athlete, manufacturer or retailer that would like to get involved with the skate and BMX events should contact Heidi Lemmon immediately at 310-823-9228 or [email protected] At least 3,000 children from housing projects and inner city areas of Los Angeles will have the opportunity to participate in the Inner City Games events at Hollywood Sports. The event will also be open to the public, as space allows. Children must bring their own skateboarding and BMX gear to participate in those particular events. The park will also have paintball, rock climbing and beach volleyball. There will be music from DJ Orator, the All Girl Skate Jam on Saturday, product giveaways and other exhibits. Athletes affiliated with SPAUSA include Steve Berra, Stevie Williams, Jeff Ferris, Frank Hirata, Jen O’Brien, Ronnie Chalk, Matt Hoffman, Dave Mirra, Dennis McCoy. The mission of the Inner-City Games is to provide opportunities for inner-city youth to participate in sports, educational, cultural and community enrichment programs; to build confidence and self-esteem; to encourage youth to say no to gangs, drugs and violence and yes to hope, learning and life. The organization began in Los Angeles in 1991 when Arnold Schwarzenegger joined forces with Danny Hernandez, Executive Director of East LA’s Hollenbeck Youth Center. Creating the Inner-City Games Foundation (ICGF) in 1995 and serving as its Chairman, Schwarzenegger expanded the program to other U.S. cities. In just six years, the Inner-City Games has spread to 15 major U.S. cities and is serving over half a million young Americans. For additional information on the ICG, contact the Los Angeles Inner-City Games office at (323) 881-6570 or visit their national website at www.lainnercitygames.org. The mission of the Skatepark Association of the United States of America is to educate, inform and raise public awareness in all areas of skating and biking. To further this goal SPAUSA’s efforts include providing free information about public and private skateparks; providing youth with safe places to skate and bike; developing construction guidelines for skateparks; providing skatepark builders, owners and operators with a forum to share information; providing educational programs for skaters and bikers; certification of instructors; development of training programs for coaches; assistance in development of competitions and demos; and providing or assisting with affordable insurance for participants, events and skateparks.

For Immediate Release DEKLINE ANNOUNCES TEAM – (San Diego, CA) – DEKLINE, the latest brand launched by Tum Yeto, Inc., is proud to announce the team that is forging a new class of society: Ben Gilley, Patrick Melcher, Cyril Mountain and Gareth Stehr. – Ben Gilley (age 25) is a real southern crazy, and originally hails from Birmingham, Alabama. Gilley now creates his place in San Diego, California, where his talent on a skateboard is taking the industry to a new level. Gilley’s draw to join the DEKLINE movement was the fact that it was grassroots and gave him the chance to be a part of something strong from the beginning. With no fear of big rails, gaps, and just about anything else for that matter, he feels It’s better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it. – Patrick Melcher (age 25) recently set up permanent residence in Hollywood, California, half a continent away from his blood brothers in Chicago. Melcher is a refreshing necessity for today’s skateboard scene, with an original and unique way of finding new spots, and making them happen. Melcher came to DEKLINE with ideas about the brand that were right in line with the basic DEKLINE formula, Make it different, something fucking different and original that I can roll with my program and not have to change it all up when I go skate. Smash it up! DEKLINE! – Gareth Stehr (age 20) scraped up what dough he could last year and said I love you Auckland, New Zealand, but I’m going to California. Since landing in San Diego, Gareth has been blowing doors off the skate scene. Finding him self smack in the middle of DEKLINE’s early stages, Stehr was so stoked on the overall brand identity concept, and that his ideas were appreciated by the rest of the creative team, he was soon a member of the DEKLINE family. That’s right, boys! Get busy livin’ or get busy dyin’! – Lance Cyril Mountain (age 18), formally known as Lance Jr., now spreads his original creative style through Long Beach by day and Santa Ana by night. His interest in design, and his constant fight for individuality, whether in his music or skating, his personal credo of Lead yourself, follow no one, made Cyril and DEKLINE an obvious fit. These four riders bring more to the table than just raw skateboard talent: design creativity, great attitudes, and a strong interest in doing their part to make the brand successful, a rarity in skateboarding these days. The DEKLINE team will grow slowly and selectively, building on the interests of this core group. Future members of DEKLINE’s new class of society will include musicians and icons from other lifestyle cultures, following the original brand strategy to work with people who believe Conformity is out! and choose their own individuality instead. DEKLINE combines the latest in technology with classic design elements. The complete Spring 2004 line of footwear, apparel and accessories will be released in September 2003 at ASR San Diego. A limited line of branded soft goods will also be available throughout the Summer and Back to School 2003 seasons. DEKLINE is the most recent addition to the Tum Yeto, Inc family of brands, which has produced industry leaders in performance, quality and reliability since 1990. In addition to having one of the most intense programs for team riders and marketing, Tum Yeto is a full line manufacturer, nationwide distributor, wholesaler and exporter of high-end professional skateboarding products including hard and soft goods. The company is run by skateboarders, for skateboarders, and has experienced over ten years of continued growth. www.dekline.com

JULY 18 – OCTOBER 12 – Skate Culture – The Art of Skateboarding @ The Contemporary Art Center of Virginia – 2200 Parks Avenue, Virginia Beach, VA 23451 – (757) 425 – 0000 Featured Artists: J. Grant Brittain, Miki Vuckovich, Shepard Fairey, Garry Davis, Neil Blender, Todd Swank, Jo Jackson, Cheryl Dunn, Jim Houser, Rebecca Westcott, Ed Templeton, Deanna Templeton, Chris Yormick, Thomas Campbell, Chris Lindig, Chris Johanson, Mark Gonzales, Tony Cox, Mike O’Meally, Andy Jenkins, Adam Wallacavage, Dalek, Bigfoot, O, Tobin Yelland, Atiba Jefferson, Rich Jacobs, Ben Woodward, Deseree Astorga, Evan Hecox… Skate Culture: The Art of Skateboarding is providing insight into the creative art works of skateboarding subculture. The time frame of our focus beins in the early 1980s and continues to the present day. Skate Culture sheds light on a huge amount of raw, passionate, yet innocent artistic energy practiced with little or no expectation of financial reward. Most of the artists involved in Skate Culture share a common string: a need to exist creatively in a world full of business as usual. The do-it-yourself approach and non-team effort of many skateboarders made it possible for this spontaneous explosion to thrive in times and bland environments. These individuals took the initiative to make it all happen for themselves simply because they wanted to-and had to-have fun and express themselves. Fun and self-expression was (and still is) the order of the day. For more info email [email protected]

PRESS RELEASE – HUNTINGTON BEACH SURFING WALK OF FAME ANNOUNCES 2003 INDUCTEES – HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. – Thursday, June 26, 2003 – The Huntington Beach Surfing Walk of Fame, the nation’s first sidewalk monument honoring surfing, has announced its tenth class of inductees. The Walk of Fame’s 10th annual ceremony to honor those individuals who have made significant contributions to the sport and culture of surfing will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Thurs., July 31 in front of Jack’s Surfboards (located on the corner of PCH and Main St.). Later that evening, the inductee class of 2003 will join with honorees from the past nine years to be feted at a Gala Dinner at the all new Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach. Inductees include Mike Doyle, one of the original North Shore pioneers and winner of the 1964 Surfer Poll in the Surf Pioneer category and Martin Potter, the 1989 ASP World Champion known for his radical mix of power and style was voted in as Surf Champion. Chuck Linnen, a standout competitor in international events and in Huntington Beach was selected Local Hero while Marge Calhoun, winner of the women’s Makaha International Surfing Championships in 1958 was selected as Woman of the Year. Larry Flame Moore, Surfing magazine’s photo editor for four decades with 42 covers to his credit and counting, and Tom Y Morey, founder of the world’s most popular wave riding vehicle, the Boogie Board, tied for Surfing Culture. Dedicated on May 28, 1994 by honoring Duke Kahanamoku as the Father of Modern Surfing, the Huntington Beach Surfing Walk of Fame marked an historic addition to ‘Surf City’. Each year, the Walk of Fame’s selection committee conducts ongoing research through surf associations, museums and media venues around the world to compile a comprehensive ballot of qualified candidates. An international panel of surf affiliated voters then cast their votes in five categories. Each inductee receives a granite stone embedded in the sidewalk in front of Jack’s, the Surfing Walk of Fame Patron. The Walk of Fame is also honoring Michelle Turner, owner of the Sugar Shack, on the ‘Honor Roll’. Michelle Turner is an ardent supporter of several Huntington Beach surfing programs and has served breakfast to more up-and-coming surfers through the years than anyone in Calif., said Peter Townend, Walk of Fame board member. Created in 1995, the honor roll pays tribute to those individuals who have contributed to surfing and its culture and are deserving of recognition, but might not qualify to receive a stone on the Walk of Fame. In recognition of its 10th anniversary, the Surfing Walk of Fame is producing a 160-page commemorative, coffee table book. Each Honoree receives a two-page spread including a photo from the Action Sports Group (ASG) archive of Surfing and Surfer magazines. A limited number of books, expected to sell quickly, will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning July 31st at Jack’s Surfboards and the International Surf Museum.

The legendary pros are usually joined in the demo by new school pros and local hot shots. Attendance outdoors is usually between 3000-5000 people.
