Watching skate videos is a part of every skateboarder’s life. Everyone has a taste of their own and not everyone can agree on which video is the best. One thing is for certain though, local videos definitely hold a little more value than your average pro video. Although the quality of the skating within the video may not always be as good, there is always something special about watching video parts of those older guys you see around town all the time at all the spots you love to skate. Skate videos have been around for a long time. In an effort to bring you a broader timeline of epic Atlanta video parts much larger than my own spectrum, I had to reach out to some of the more seasoned veterans in the game. These first two are not technically local videos, but they were among the first few times Atlanta skateboarders had big time video parts.
This past Friday was the Element No Board Left Behind event here at Ambush Board Co. If you had an old deck laying around the house, Element was kind enough to bring all there supplies to cut it into a cruiser shape for FREE! Also if you bought an Element deck the day of the event you, received free cruiser wheels and trucks courtesy of Element! Pretty sick deal if you ask me. Sorry for those who missed out.
On the scene hanging out were Element pros Levi Brown and Evan Smith. Big thanks to them for coming to hang out. They are some chill dudes! The Legend himself Donny Barley was on hand as well cutting your boards personally just for you! He did an awesome job. Big thanks to Andy Dicker for providing the entertainment while everyone was getting there decks hooked up! Huge thanks to Element and everyone who came out to get there boards cut. Looking forward to seeing everyone in the future.
In my opinion, there is only one thing to do on a perfect weather day. That is go skate. Cool, blue skies, a light breeze and fresh Georgia air got me out of the house real quick. I rounded up a couple of the Ambush boys Wes and Zeke as well as the good homies Dakota Plumley and Brenden Lagna. We all met up at the new Kennesaw Skatepark to start a sweet day of shredding. We put in a solid 5 hours of non stop skating. Here is a little montage to show what we got!
The guys from VOX recently came into town to stack footage for a new web series on Network A. Check out the fruits of your labor in the form of this ATL-based web edit. Kennesaw got a lot of shine. Huge shouts to VOX and everyone for coming out.

It’s a good time to be a metro-Atlanta based wakeboarder. The lakes are still at full pool, the weather is holding out, and Terminus Wake Park recently opened up in Emerson, GA. Take a couple laps around the new park with Cole Vanhoff, Nick Gaddy, and Gary Sargent as they get critical sharing a two hour session.

You’ve never seen a board like the Space Pickle. An all new ultra-wide thumb tail design that’s sure to take your wave riding to the next level.
“We’ve been having a lot of fun with the Space Pickle this year.” Slingshot explains. “Obviously it’s great in the surf, but the guys have really been crushing it behind the boat. It’s a blast.”
Check out the Space Pickle in action behind the boat. If you’re looking for a low impact, fun way to work your lower and upper body…then look no further.

Today was a big day for the local skate scene of North Cobb County. At 11:00am this morning, the city of Kennesaw held the official groundbreaking for the first phase of construction for the Swift-Cantrell Skatepark.
“The facility will be the first ever permanent skate park to feature elements modeled on a competitive street skate park plaza design, and will be capable of hosting large and small skateboarding events.” explains the Kennesaw Parks and Recreation dept. “The first phase will consist of two projects: the skate park plaza, as well as additional parking, lighting and restrooms.”
We’re stoked to see the project unfold and get underway. More information can be found on the Kennesaw Parks and Recreation‘s Facebook page.

Friday August 31st the Ambush team headed up north to Found Skatepark to show off the goods and give away some goodies. This was the first time up there for most of us and I have to say that the park is pretty damn sweet. The guys over at Found made good use of a smaller sized space and the park flows like butter. I know the Found is pretty far from home for you local Ambush dudes, but we saw a few familiar faces up there (which is awesome) and met a whole bunch of new rad kids as well. Hopefully, this video will hype some of you to drive up to Ellijay and give it a whirl.
Big thanks to Mike and the whole Found crew for having us, and an even bigger thanks to all the kids and families who showed up in support. Hope you guys had as much fun as we did!
On 4/20 the Supra team pleasured the Dirty South their arrival in Atlanta. I hear they were throwing hammers down the Big 5 before they headed up here for a meet and greet. A huge crowd showed up and started to shred the ramps as they waited for the team to arrive. Tyler Lee and I got the grill going and kept hot dogs on deck.
When the vans arrived it was Neen Williams, Boo Johnson, Keelan Dadd, Spencer Hamilton, Kevin Romar, Pat Rumney, and Nick Tucker. It didn’t take long for the kids to start a line and the team began writing their name over and over and over again.
After everyone got their collectable ebay items to sell when they are over the hill, the team just chilled with crowd for a few hours. Some dudes killed the ramps, some shredded the mic. If you didn’t make it you are probably going to regret it for the rest of your life, but good thing Max got it all on film for you.
