Vans X Team Pain

As we all know, Vans Skatepark Orlando is permanently closing their doors January 21st. As a tribute to 10 solid years here in Orlando and a gift to keep Orlando’s skate scene thriving, Vans has partnered with us here at Team Pain to donate two concrete skate pieces to the Orlando Skate Park. Check out some 3D renderings of these pieces. The pieces will be installed and ready to skate this week. Be sure to check out the events going on January the 19th and 20th at Vans!

Check this quick clip from the Skate Art course this past weekend at Surf Expo! The Surf Expo course was a little smaller this Summer, but we still managed to have a few best trick contests, and got to watch the locals kill it! Be sure to show up for Surf Expo this January, the course will be big again and we will be doing another course for Bangers for Bucks.

SURF EXPO Summer 2011

Mark your calendars for September 8 – 10 because there WILL definitely be a skate course at the Surf Expo! Since Surf Expo only set aside a 20’x120′ area, we will bring in a variety of Skate Art to make up the street course so there will still be plenty of space to cruise around and won’t feel too cluttered. There will also be a contest with specifics still to be decided. Make sure you have your Surf Expo badge ready and be sure to stop by the Team Pain booth for some free swag!

Surf Expo – August 2009

Thanks to everyone who attended the August 09 Surf Expo. The skating that went down was truly amazing and for the second installation of our SkateArt at the SURF EXPO, this show was a huge success and everyone had a good time doing what they do best.

Each of the three days there were pro demos from the guys at Eastern Skateboard Supply and those guys were throwing down some hammers on all of the SkateArt pieces. We built a custom centerpiece just for this show which ended up being aptly named the “Thing – a – majig” courtesy of Keith Baldassare. Justin Brock was killing the Thingamajig with huge melon grabs and a buttery 360 flip up and over to flat. Chad Bartie Heelflipped the thingamajig all the way to flat and he launched some really high ollies out of the thingamajig. Brandon Westgate pulled an huge Ollie straight up and over the big manual ledge and even 180ed it, simply amazing! Ronnie Creager and James Craig can flip in, and flip out of any ledge or many trick you can think of! They were getting so tech, it was amazing. Corey duffel skated a lil bit, but he actually got hurt playing JT Aultz in a flatground game of skate, so didn’t skate that much on Saturday, but he was killin it on Friday. Speaking of JT Aultz, super nice guy, and has Backside Nosegrinds over the rainbow ledge on lock! He can also get tech with a kickflip nose manny nollie flip out on the yellow slant ledge. Gareth Stehr was another thingamajig fan. He could backside 180 it all the way to flat every try! He never messed up once, and he also launched an airwalk to flat as well!

With some cash in hand and some product to give away, we held a couple best trick and best run contests to bring out the truly skilled and help them out with some cash! Local up and comer Bert Wootton won the Friday contest on the yellow slant ledge with a nose many up and around to switch many down and backside flip out, amazing! Another local Jonny Scieanneux stuck a clean Frontside Five – 0 to Frontside Bigspin out on the Wavy bench winning himself first place in one of the best truck contests but that wasn’t enough and Johnny pulled off a Lipslide to Nosegrind to Lipslide on the Sad bench winning in another best trick contest. David Khan completed a winning run which took place on the BIG ledge and the small manny pad with a Frontside Bluntslide on the Big ledge to Nollie Heel 5-0 on the small manny pad.
