IMYTA+ or I Match Your Trick Association Plus, which is what this strange abbreviation stands for, is the single biggest skate event on the planet.

It came into existence in the year 2000, when the world was a happy place and a lot seemed possible. Jon Julio, the skating legend, created the second ever skate competition on real street. (The first ever was held three weeks prior, was called the Truth Real Street Comp, and was organised by yours truly, by the way).

The real street concept was an immediate success. But for IMYTA, success did not last, due to the increasingly repressive climate in the US.

Shop Kaput published two pages of photos from the Imyta Plus 2006 :

Thanks Gijs

up : I love this photo of Dominic Wagner and Mathias Silhan. It was taken by Alex Schneider at the Last Man Standing comp that took place before the Imyta+. It really looks like the skaters are playing cat and mouse in the bowl.
