I had to re-upload this little edit of the Vans Warped Tour Qualifier on the mini-ramp at Schoolyard Skatepark from a couple weekends ago because of some copyright issues. Anyway, here it is. Thanks to Demon Seed Skateboards, Westside Skateshop, and Schoolyard Skatepark for putting this on. See you guys at the Vans Warped Tour in Vinoy Park next weekend. – Nicks

Yesterday was the Grand Opening & Mega Best Trick Contest at Schoolyard Skatepark in St. Petersburg. Schoolyard Skatepark is an indoor, air-conditioned, street-style park and is skateboarder-owned and operated. Westside Skateshop has a fully stocked shop at the park to make sure you stay hooked-up right. The turn-out yesterday was incredible, the parking lot was full and the park was jam packed. Below is a little montage of footage from the 4 different best trick contests that went down throughout the afternoon. Each contest was on a different obstacle: the china bank, the bump to rail, the planter ledge, and the quarter-pipe/ pyramid. Lots of serious shredding was going on yesterday, and these guys are just getting started. Make sure to stay up to date with all of the demos, contests, etc. coming to Schoolyard Skatepark on their Facebook Page and of course, on the No Comply Upcoming Events page.

I remember going to all-nighters at Astro Skate in Tarpon Springs a long time ago when I was a kid. Astro Skate is a roller skating rink, but they have a couple of ramps and boxes and a couple of rails that they pull out once in a while and let people skate. Here’s a clip of John Montesi and some of the Westside Skateshop team doing a little demo at Astro. Filmed and Edited by Tim Simmons
