Dropping in... The History of the Jacksonville Skate Scene @ Beaches Museum & History Center
An exhibit at the Beaches Museum & History Center Celebrating the Colorful Heritage of “The Jacksonville Skate Scene” will be an exciting display of Jacksonville’s rich skateboard history. Originally, skateboarding was created and influenced by surfers seeking any inclined concrete surface on which to recreate the sensation of “riding the waves” on land. Hills, driveways, parking garages and ultimately empty swimming pools provided the ideal terrain to satisfy the wave starved surfer during flat spells. Consisting of vintage photos, videos and skateboard equipment, you will be amazed at the impact Jacksonville had on the skateboarding industry, locally and nationally. The exhibit will open on June 10 and run through August 28, 2010. A “Grand Opening Party”will be on June 12, 2010 from 7:00 – 10:00 PM. In attendance at the Grand Opening Party will be Jacksonville’s biggest Skate legends such as Jimmy Plumer, George Wilson, Buck Smith, Mike Peterson, Todd Johnson and many more. “Special Guest” appearances of Jay Adams, original Z-Boy, plans to be there too. At the special event a documentary will be featured detailing the origins of the “Rattown” crew, as well as The Z-East Team, the Dogtown connection, the evolution of Kona Skatepark and more, produced and presented by local professional surfer and skateboarder Mitch Kaufmann. A special Induction Ceremony by “The Florida Skateboard Hall of Fame” is also being planned in conjunction with the Grand Opening Party. An award ceremony for a surf/skate contest scheduled for earlier that day will also take place. Call 904-241-5657 for details.
This exhibit and event will be dedicated in honor of Bob Biniak, a great friend and original Z-Boy, who suffered a fatal heart attack while visiting here in February 2010. This special event made possible through Atlantic Video owned by Mitch Kaufmann.
Mark your calendars NOW for this Exciting and Original exhibit and Grand Opening Party, Saturday, June 12, 2010. Tickets are $10.00 in advance and $15.00 at the door. Free food, cash bar and lots of FUN! Tickets on sale at the Beaches Museum & History Center located at 380 Pablo Ave, Jacksonville Beach, Fl 32250 or ON-LINE using PayPal at www.bm-hc.com.

Goat Ramp at Jax Beach
Tim Kulis and crew came out for a demo/contest in jacksonville beach, bringing his own portable ramp, also known as the Goat Ramp (www.goatramp.com) Good vibes, even though there were a few police officers walking around taking all the guys' beers. everybody seemed to be bummed on that one. I didnt really get the chance to shoot as many photos as I wanted, sorry for the low amount of them. I really am slacking on this post, because I don't even remember the results of the contest. you can see the rest of the photos here.
