King of Ohio 2 is happening this Saturday the 8th at Skate Naked. There will be three different ways to compete, either in the bowl, street or best trick. Signups close at 2:00pm so get there before then if you want to compete. Contest starts at 3:00pm and there will be live bands.
Junji over at Sound Boarding flew in from Osaka Japan to capture and edit the perfect coverage of this year’s Burnout skate jam at Now That’s Class in Cleveland Ohio. Ramps were ripped, beers were drank, and money was raised for the Queen Ave DIY.
Here is some footage from multiple angles showing the progress of the Crooked River Skatepark that is being built in Rivergate Park on the West Bank of the Flats in Cleveland Ohio. This is just down the hill from Downtown Cleveland, Tremont and Ohio City. The Crooked River Skatepark is a City of Cleveland project made possible by Public Square Group, The Tony Hawk Foundation, LAND Studios, McKnight Associates, F. Buddie Inc, Ohio City Incorporated and Tremont West. Grindline Skateparks is the design/build contractor.
You can get to the skatepark by heading to Merwin Avenue off of Columbus Road. This area is home to the Ohio City Bicycle Co-Op, Sainatos Pizza, Cleveland Rowing Foundation, and Merwin’s Wharf which is a restaurant operated by the Cleveland Metroparks.
Based on the current progress of the park build it may be possible to see it open before the end of 2014.
