Then, on Saturday, May 14th…P(a)yne Skate Park in Sarasota!


Last Friday, Sk8skool and Ringling College of Art & Design’s Project Management class combined forces to bring us the SRQ SK8 JAM. $5 got you an evening of live music, artist booths, food & drink, and skateboarding. 100% of the proceeds went to Sk8skool to help with operational costs at P(a)yne Skate Park and to the eventual elimination of user-fees at the skate park altogether. I had a prior obligation which, unfortunately, allowed me to only be at this event for a short time. As far as I could tell, there were at least 200 people there, probably more! I did manage to shoot a few photos. – Nicks.

Demon Seed Skateboards Demo @ P(a)yne Skate Park

 This past Saturday afternoon the Demon Seed Skateboards crew invaded P(a)yne Skate Park in Sarasota. The skating got started at about 1 pm and the shredding continued non-stop for about 3 hours, moving from one section of the park to another. The Demon Seed crew absolutely killed it. Several locals stepped into the mix and threw down also. Plenty of t-shirts, hats, hardware, and other prizes were given out throughout the day for various little “Best Trick” Contests and the P(a)yne Skate Park staff provided food and drinks. Everybody was shredding and having a great time, but I would have to say that Nick Murphy’s Backside 5-0 grind on the oververt pocket and Keith Baldassare’s Rock N’ Roll slide over the stairs in the pool were the highlights of the afternoon! Thanks again to Demon Seed Skateboards, DNA Energy Drinks, Robot-Guts Hardware, Guano Wheels, Chris and the rest of the staff at P(a)yne Skate Park, and everyone that came out to skate or hangout for making this happen!

Demon Seed Brewery Welcomes Mat Call

Demon Seed Skateboards would like to welcome Mat Call to the Demon Seed Brewery with the official release of his “Last Call Brew Model”. Mat is a true all-terrain vehicle that will destroy anything in his path. Once again, as we have come to expect from Demon Seed, the graphics are really sick and the board, of course, is the same 7-ply Canadian maple and made 100% in the good ole’ USA. “Last Call Brew Models” are available now in shops and in Demon Seed’s Online Store. Take a look at this video clip of Mat from a best trick contest at The Ghetto Skate Facility last year, in which he took first place…

Congratulations to Mat, and don’t forget that next saturday Mat and the rest of the Demon Seed crew will be shredding P(a)yne Skate Park in Sarasota to pieces! You don’t want to miss it!
