Kids That Rip! is bringing a new theme to Open Skate each 1st Friday of the month from 7-10pm. On May 4th, don’t forget your afro and bell bottoms, because we’ll be thrashin’ to some disco through the night. We’ve got a “Who’s got the Funkiest Costume Contest” and “Grooviest Dance Moves” planned. Of course, if you’ve got an old-school flat ground board, now’s the time to bring out your Rodney Mullen style tricks. See you there! Cost is $15 for the 3hr session.
Last weekend was the Phoenix Am, one of the most highly regarded and respected Am skate contests in the nation. With that being said, the talent that shows up is insane. 21 year old Ben Hatchell took first this year, but 11 year old Jagger Eaton was close behind. Just barely missing the finals, Jagger came in 18th out of 184 contestants! Congrats Jagger!
Kids That Rip! in Mesa is Jagger’s home skatepark, so if you want to skate with him, come to a summer camp or open skate. You’re likely to see him shredding, and pick up some good tips.
