Crossfire Xmas Jam 2011

Chris Oliver flies highest Ph: Jerome Loughran

chris_oliver_skateSurrounded by blue skies and a winter chill, the Crossfire Xmas Jam warmed a few hundred people at Bay 66 Skatepark this December. The rain held, the skateboarding poured and only four people managed to spill blood on the day. Thankfully there were no broken bones to talk about.

Manny Lopez came off worse by running into Tim Prozorov and suffered a collision injury that forced the ambulance service to drive him to the nearest hospital for stitches. Adrenaline was needed to slow down the bleeding so it could be stitched up so he will be feeling sore this morning. Get well soon Manny, we all missed watching you skate.

Some big stuff went down in this afternoon session. Notable mentions to Chroliver, Nowik, Cullen, Raemers, Zwijsen, Collins and many more on the day. A rowdy crowd then filled the after party who roared along to the premiere of the Kill City Skateboards Rookies DVD. It was the first time some of the team riders had seen the film due to a trip to Barcelona last week and it did not disappoint.

We noticed this week that a skateboard chainstore decided to poach footage from our event and release it immediately to market themselves across the internet. This is seriously lame as another skate shop had sponsored this jam and the store in question had not asked permission to film at at our event. They did not mention the sponsors that made this event possible whatsoever and these are the core brands of our scene that allow us to run this annual get together. Support skater owned shops this Xmas people. Keep your local scene alive.

Enjoy the official video edit to get the full picture of what went down on the day courtesy of Andy Evans.

Big thanks to all who drove for miles to share these good times and make these events work plus all of the staff at Bay 66 Skatepark, and our associate sponsors Slam City Skates Plan B, Flip and Superdead Skateboards

More big shouts out to the companies that sponsored the jam including Heroin, Death, Drawing Boards, Science, Crayon, Kill City, Lovenskate and Blueprint Skateboards.

This jam was for Bingo on his Birthday. RIP.

Surrounded by blue skies and a winter chill, the Crossfire Xmas Jam warmed a few hundred people at Bay 66 Skatepark yesterday. The rain held, the skateboarding poured and only four people managed to spill blood on the day. Thankfully there were no broken bones to talk about.

Some big stuff went down in this session. Notable mentions to Chroliver, Nowik, Cullen, Raemers, Zwijsen, Collins and many more for all day shredding and of course, the legendary Mark Brewster’s vocal skills on the mic all day. Churchill has got nothing on this cat. Look out for a video edit and a photo gallery very soon and thanks to all who got off their backsides to get amongst it with us on the day.

A rowdy crowd filled the after party who roared along to the premiere of the Kill City Skateboards Rookies DVD. It was the first time some of the team riders had seen the film due to a trip to Barcelona last week and it did not disappoint. Beers were raised, the film dropped its hammers and there should be some tasty hangovers out there today.
