Everything is Bigger in Texas: Skatestock III and Spring Skatepark

The skateboarding stars collided in the great Lone Star state of Texas on Oct 17-18, 2014, for the Grand Opening of the Spring Skatepark (the biggest skatepark in America built by Grindline) and Skatestock III (with some of the greatest skateboarders and skate rockers on the planet) at the Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark in Houston. The weekend was exploding with world-class action, skate legends, skateable art sculpture, skate rock and skateboarding at its biggest and best. Here are just a few photos that Lee Leal of Embassy Skateboards snapped in between rockin’ out with his band, Contortion Session bowl side. VIPS in attendance included: Steve Alba, Tony Alva, Peggy Oki, Steve Olson, John Gibson, Wally Inouye, Craig Johnson, Lance Mountain, Lee Leal, Doug Saladino, Chris Strople, Jerry Valdez, Brian Brannon and Tim Kerr…
