Matt Bright moved down to San Angelo, TX last year and we immediately became great friends. He is one of the most humble and inspiring skaters that I have been around. His bag of tricks is very deep and he is constantly learning some crazy trick I didn’t know he was capable of.
I am proud to be able to make Matt’s first profile. Welcome to the Texas family, Matt! We are glad to have you. - Kevin Little.
This is Wes Phelan blading a few parks around the Dallas metroplex. He has more energy and motivation to go blade than anyone else in our scene and it’s a great thing to be apart of. Thanks to Wes for doing this project with me and John Sullivan and Jason Reyna for helping me shoot. - Troy Maimone.
The Donate and Skate was originally planned to be at a skatepark in the small town of Seguin, TX, but the rain had different plans for us.
The organizers reconvened underneath a covered area in a park down the street, scavenged a box and a p-rail from the locals and game on. There was a great turn out for such a weird location. The competition was stacked.
Heavy hitters Andrew Broom and Mason Richard had their eyes on the gold medal this year, as did many other young hopefuls. The edit does this competition no justice. So many clips were missed.
Intense battles between competitors. Valo flow team rider Andrew Broom going head to head against TX legend Michael Kraft. A true test of endurance and attrition.
But it was the dark horse, Foogie, who rose to glory. Sweeping the crowd off its feet with his deep vocabulary of tricks and unmatchable style, his performance will not be quickly forgotten. The recent Colorado transplant was recently picked up newly formed skate empire “curb killa clique”. Be on the look out for this one. Congratulations to all in attendance.
