Converse Coastal Carnage 2012 Live Webcast

Coastal Carnage 2012 Live Stream and Webcast at Huntington Beach 
Screech (Josh Sandoval) did not make the finals of the 2012 Coastal Carnage... He should have!!!

You can see the 2012 Coastal Carnage Live stream here and here...

It's been several years of the Coastal Carnage bowl contest during the US Open on Huntington Beach, but this year marks the first time the webcast can’t be feeded into other websites, so if you want to see the live action of the 2012 Coastal carnage, you will need to go to SPOT or the US Open of Surfing, the 2 main sponsors of the event, to see it streaming…
Looks like skateboarding is following the path of the Olympics, with exclusive coverage rights and no file-sharing opportunities…

Yesterday was the qualifiers with some heavy shredding in the bowl.
The shark is the gnarliest element of the 2012 Coastal Carnage bowl... 
Jaws took too many slams, but managed to stay fit and hurt free during the whole day. Charlie Blair was on fire with FS 50-50 to fake, Stalefish to fakie, Backside sugarcane around the corner and multiple tricks coming out of his trick bag. The sun was there, the dust was there and the pretty teeny boppers with their hug-me-for-free and other x-rated sharpie tags tattoos were there too. Correction, most of the tattooed girls were pretty, after all we live in a country where supersize-me has a meaning and Monsanto rules our food with GMO induced plants… … From there it was on to the Nike and Converse demo, where it was like an amazing practice session from a typical day you'd see at any skateboard demo. Ben Hatchell, Pedro Barros, Ben Raybourn, Tom Remillard, Ben Raemers and Charlie Blair were killing it. Screech (Josh Sandoval) was my pick at the practice on Friday and the qualifiers yesterday, but the judges decided he was not good enough for the finals so I was bummed!!! Screech is my hero…

Anyway, what started as the biggest celebration of surfing has now become as one of the biggest celebration of Surfing, skateboarding and music. There's top notch skateboarding and high quality chilling going down at Coastal Carnage 2012 and you’d better watch coz it’s the last day...
