PRLog - Aug. 2, 2011 - LOS ANGELES -- Summertime means many things to different people. In extreme sporting circles, this time of year is synonymous with surfing and skating. There’s nothing like hitting the pavement on a hot day and watching the pros compete at the X Games. Learning new tricks takes time, practice, and a lot of patience. Persistence eventually pays off, but not without leaving a bloody trail of destroyed gear in its wake. Cracked decks and flatspots show no mercy in ruining even the gnarliest of sessions.
LocalPAGES Bring the Gnar! Giveaway
Since replacement parts don’t fit into anyone’s budget at the moment, LocalPAGES.com and 4 sponsors decided to throw skaters a bone(less) through a special online contest. Bring the Gnar! gives shredders everywhere a shot at an awesome prize package just for “liking” the LocalPAGES Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/
While this contest expresses support for extreme athletes, it also highlights the importance of local businesses. Neighborhood board shops, such as Purple Skunk and ZJ Boarding House, serve a purpose in their communities. Purple Skunk owners Lizzie and Rodney sponsor Bay area riders, and give kids a safe place to chill after school. For its part, the ZJ Boarding House crew regularly spends its time keeping the Santa Monica beaches clean. Online only retailer Liberty Skate pitches in by donating a portion of its revenue to American Forests; 1% of every dollar spent at Liberty goes to planting new trees. These independent companies are the backbone behind their local skate scenes, and need love just as much as the big guys.
