2 years ago we set out to create a video dedicated to Keaton Newsom. The more I talked about it with people the more it became clear, the only name fitting enough for it would have to be “Candy”. Before Keaton took over as team manager for Ground Control he had been working on releasing a wheel company called “Candy”. We couldn’t think of a better way to honor our brother. Due to the cause, everybody wanted to get involved in one way or another. This is the end result: blading straight from the heart. Anthony Medina.

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.

One golden hour is Austin, Texas. Featuring skating by Brad Anthony, Josh Broughton, Mick Casals, Eric Bayou, Andrew Broom, and Anthony Medina.
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.
