The 9th edition of Oi Vert Jam 2011 is once again I Skate, Therefore I Am -Home- Yes! isTia skateboard blog talks about skateboarders, skaters, vert, ramp, skateparks, pool, backyard pools, kidney pool, pink motel, supreme skateboard, copying, skateboarding photography, skate rock, concrete disciples, daily skate news, Vans, Venice skatepark, skate spots  and skateboard news. There are plenty of other skate websites that publish skateboard news faster than me, and better than me (Transworld, The Berrics, Thrasher, Slap magazine, skatedaily, crailtap, juice magazine, skate and annoy,…), so I won’t just give the skate news, I’ll also tell you what I think about it even if I’m wrong. Then you can conform and think like me too and impress your friends with your profound knowledge of the skateboarding industry.
one of the season’s best stop of the World Tour among all WCS contests and reinforces the idea that Rio de Janeiro must be in the calendar of international skateboarding. The Skate Park at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, between 4 and 6 March 2011, will bring together leading names and new skateboard jacks, including veteran Andy Macdonald - eight times world champion - who is participating for the first time in the event, and newcomer Pedro Barros, 15, last years’ revelation (he landed 4th) but just won the 1st place in February 2011 at Bowl-A-Rama both at Wellington and Bondi.

The dispute between the experienced players and new talent of skateboarding has everything to become a suspense. Marcelo Bastos, winner of the 2010 edition of Oi Vert Jam world champion, has already confirmed his presence and is ready to defend his title. "The competition will not be easy. The new generation is changing very fast and the more experienced skaters are far from the end of their careers. I believe that Bob Burnquist and Sandro Dias, who will also attend the event, have at least six more years of high-level skate ahead”, says Bastos. “But I hope I get the title again in Oi Vert Jam 2011" said Bastos, 24 years, the representative of the older generation.

The Oi Vert Jam’s 2011 new ramp also promises to draw attention. With a cutting edge, international standard, the half pipe, 18m wide and 4.20 m high, has two canyons - one on the other - in the middle of the lane with 1.5 m wide each. "We always try to make a ramp more challenging for athletes. And this was the first time that some of them previously consulted to see how they preferred. Build a barrier of 3 meters wide was the most appreciated, as it increases the difficulty of the maneuver and speed requires more time to initiate the turn" said Sandro Dias, project supervisor. Besides the individual event, there will also be proof of Best Trick sponsored by Volkswagen.
The major international stars of Oi Vert Jam Americans will be, besides the Australian Renton Millar, Paul Luc Ronchetti, Danny Mayer, Elliot Sloan, Alex Perelson and Anthony Furlong…
