Friday at P(a)yne Skatepark in Sarasota the weather was perfect for the Punk Rock Mini Ramp Jam.

Quick 5 is a brand new, and hopefully regular, feature on the mag. Pretty much just like it sounds, Quick 5 is a quick, 5-trick video clip. I’m hoping that this will also force me to improve my filming and editing skills! Anyway, getting us started is Westside Skateshop family member, and one of Florida’s finest…TJ Sparks. – Nicks

Alright, here is the latest on the status of the new Bradenton Skatepark. It looks as though a skatepark is part of the overall final plan for the downtown Bradenton “Riverwalk” project. The Downtown Development Authority is aware that there is plenty of support for the skatepark, and that the park will attract local (and non-local) people to the downtown area at least once a week. Let’s face it, if the park is done right, it will attract locals & non-locals to the downtown area MORE than once a week. There is one snag though, the DDA has NOT committed to having a FREE skatepark. The justifications for charging a “User Fee” for a public, city-owned, taxpayer-funded, skatepark, or any type of park for that matter, doesn’t hold any water. This is where you come in. Please fill out the petition form below and be sure to include keywords such as: “Free”, “Public”, “Lighted”, “All Hour Access”, etc. Also, be sure to include how many times per week you and your family would visit the park. Here is an example that you are more than welcome to use word for word or alter to fit your own personal comment: “A free public skate park along the riverfront will give kids a great outlet to release their energy in a positive way. My family would visit the skate park at least 3 to 4 times a week hopefully at night as long as the skate park is lighted to skate in cooler temperatures.” Completed petition forms can be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or they can be dropped of at any of the local skateshops in Bradenton or Sarasota or at P(a)yne Skatepark in Sarasota. Thank you for your support!
