week2.jpgYouth Week got rained out pretty bad, but having said that, lots of young kids, their parents, lots of Vancouver Skateboard Coalition peeps and politicians came out and we had really good time.

Thank you Jeff, Juliana and Diana for all your hard work and effort.

Parade Update

515199914_4eb367bd681.jpgWell, we got through our first parade. I don’t think I have ever been in a parade before. At least not that I can remember.

Anyhoo, we had a fun time. It was a really, really long parade and it was packed with happy people. They loved us, of course. The parade ended with a Carnival-type thing, with booths giving out free stuff and free rides for the kids. We had a booth for a bit until we found out that it was someone else’s booth. The BMX guys had some ramps set up and they were doing crazy jumps so we set up camp with them for a while.

We are still working on building our crazy, skate-ramp-float. It should be ready for the next parade and it’s gonna rule!

Thanks to Antisocial and ES for their support. And thanks to all the folks that came out.

Casting Call- Skaters or BMX-16-19

My name is Dylan and I’m working with a production in Vancouver shooting a Kohl’s Clothing commercial that will be in production early next month. I am currently doing some “street casting” or casting for real people with no experience and no agent for this particular as we are seeking Skateboarders and BMX riders to be featured in it. If there is anyway for you to spread the word about this particular project I would greatly appreciate as I’m not very involved in the skateboarding community and have limited resources within it.

We are looking for:

BOYS & GIRLS – 16-19 – Skateboarding ability or can ride BMX

Auditions will be held, order
SUNDAY MAY 12th 2007
10-11am – Lonsdale Skatepark, N Van 12:15-2pm – Kirkstone Skatepark, N Van
2:30 – 3:30 – Parkgate Skatepark, N Van
4:30 – 5:30 – Hasting Skatepark, Van
6:00-7:00 – Downtown Skatepark (under the viaduct), Van

Basically it’s as easy as filling a form, talking to us on camera for 30 and going for a quick taped ride. You don’t get paid to audition but if selected the rider would make $500 for the day & $1500 compensation for the buyout…. So $2000 for a day’s work! Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call or email me.
