Rollerblading contests are about a lot more than just rollerblading. Many of the people are there for the entertainment and fellowship with others alike.
Not every trick is landed and the audience is a big part of what made Pow-wow VII such a success.
Hats off to all the competitors for all your hard work and to the crowd for baking in that humid sunshine and standing loud when someone earned the cheers. The trip was nothing but successful and SS was glad to be part of it. I hope this one makes you smile as much as it does us. – SS.
We piled deep in the van, volvo, and civic to power blast down to Florida to the 7th annual Panhandle Pow-Wow. We arrived to piss pouring rain and a flooded skatepark.
We were able to enjoy quite the fellowship with all of the buds, both new and old. A few of us even managed to squeeze is the first official pow wow bond fire on Saturday night where we joined The Shred crew, Blake Taylor, other southern neighbors and local Florida heads building a large flame in the rain.
Topping the night off with the splitting of the winners beer. Sunday sunshine prevailed and the contest still managed to happen. Here is the some of the skating that was not missed.
Sorry for missing some of those hammers doods. Blame it on the rain. To everyone who bought SS merch, wear that shit with pride! We are SS, We Are Rising.
