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.

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!
- Keith Baldassare, Frontside Ollie.
