I tried to make a video last year but gave up… I made a few edits with some of the footage, but this is the rest of it. It’s not a real video, it’s only 8 minutes. New Orleans, San Diego, Los Angeles, Austin, Richmond & El Paso. A lot of peeps in this one though. All filler, no killer. - Cody Sanders.
Peeps: Austin Foogie Bartels, Heath Burley, Andrew Broom, Taylor Denea Allen, Russell Day, Andrew Waddle, Levi van Rijn, Chris Fleener, Oliver Prado, Logan Stell Fowell, Shannon Joy Rodgers, Miguel Angel Ramos, Garret Mitschelen, Bear Phillips, Mick Casals, Grant Collins, Brandon Bobadilla, J.r. Padron, Aarin Gates & Ross Puryear.
Music: “Might be” - Jstab, “indo smoke” - Dretti Franks (Feat. CVRSXD), “LDA” - FIDLAR.
All 8 wheels, 4down 4up, po’ up. Not taking edits seriously and only skating the bladepark. - Cody Sanders.
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.
