SBA - Belcopalooza - 2013
About a month ago there was a weekend in which our Nation’s Capital received a huge influx of skateboarders. Gathered for SBA’s Pro/Am invitational final and their chance at a piece of the $18,000 prize pool
Sure there’s some ridiculous skateboarding, a bunch of free stuff to come by, some local hero’s to cheer on and some to avoid, but there’s one thing that get’s me psyched way more than any of the that. It’s vibe. The whole day, one of the few times of the year you can be surrounded by so many homies you might not have seen for months & might not see again for many more.
When else are this many australian skateboarders from all over Aus gathered in one place? So in between two some-what long hectic days of running around with a video camera essentially strapped to my face, I attempted capture some memorabilia with my 35mm film camera.
Looking back over them a couple weeks later they serve as a rad little reminder of an ‘interesting’ weekend to say the least. I figured I’d stop being so selfish and share them with any one else that had the pleasure of being there or maybe wasn’t lucky enough to make it down.
Already psyched for the next one, look out for me wondering around with my little old memory maker.
