Old Guys Jam Series: Skatelab

The over 50 category Eddie Hadvina, Gregg Garrett, Steve Wright, Jerry Schioman 'Sleepy'

This Sunday, Heidi Lemmon, with the help of Concrete Disciples and Skatelab was organizing the second stop of the O.G. Skate Jam at Skatelab in Simi Valley. Old guys came up to the place to show how is it to skate when you are over 40 and over 50.

And believe me, some of the over 50, still have balls to shred the wooden bowl. Eddie Hadvina (51) won the over 50 contest and the best trick. His runs were flawless and he skates better, with more power and more consistency than some 20 years old skaters that I know… The 40-49r division was won by Garret Naka and the 30-39 was won by Steve Badillo.

There was a bunch of sponsors, and a bunch of prizes, proof that the contest has gained a lot of traction with the skateboard industry.

Next stop will be concrete bowls at The Cove on June 30. Thanks to all the sponsors and the judges.
