14th Tim Brauch results

14th Annual Tim Brauch Memorial

14th Tim Brauch memorial Contest at Lake Cunningham Regional Skatepark.

Unlike last year, when the contest was divided into two week-end, this year, the 14th Tim Brauch contest came back to normal scheduling. Considered to be the world's longest running bowl contest, the Tim Brauch Memorial Fund  is an independent scholarship fund and skateboard park development fund established in 1999.

The fund was created to continue to keep giving back to the kids and the sport of skateboarding that Tim loved so much. By giving scholarships and donating to skateboard park development we are promoting kids to be active outside. Our vision is that through skateboarding kids will develop discipline, confidence, motivation, and other traits that encourage success.Each year the Tim Brauch Memorial Fund and Sessions hold a memorial skate contest to help raise money in an effort to continue its mission.

For those not really familiar with Tim Brauch, you have to know that he was both a popular and accomplished world class skateboarder who died in the spring of 1999 from a heart attack. In addition to being a skateboarder, Tim Brauch also designed skateboards and founded Este Clothing. Sessions Outerwear was one of Brauch's sponsors and after his death they started the Tim Brauch Memorial Fund in his honor.

As an additional testament to Brauch's popularity, he was one of a handful of skateboarders featured in a 2004 to 2007 traveling Smithsonian Institute exhibit entitled Breaking Records, Sports, Breaking Barriers. Though the exhibit is no longer traveling across America, skaters can still view exhibit highlights online. Among the items on display is the skateboard Brauch rode to victory during the 1998 Vans Triple Crown Championship.

The first of the two Tim Brauch Memorial Skate contest was held at Lake Cunningham Regional Skatepark. The skate park is located within Sky Park on South White Road in San Jose, California, and served as the venue for the firts Tim Brauch Memorial Skate held on September 22nd, 2011. Unlike the September 23rd competition, the September 22nd contest was for bowl skaters. Lucky for skaters planning on attending, the Lake Cunningham Regional Skatepark purportedly features the largest cradle, largest full pipe and tallest vert wall in the world. It is open to the public daily with designated hours for both skateboarders and BMX riders. Admission to the skatepark typically ranges in price from $3 to $5 per person, depending on age. Additional details about the skatepark may be found online.
