Advance in 2010 King of the Groms

King of the Groms finals update
February 19-21, 2010

Clint, Mark and Dustin all headed up this past week to Minnesota for the KOTG finals. All of them skated the qualifiers on Saturday to try and make the cut to the finals on Sunday.

All skated great. Clint made the cut coming in 8th and Mark just squeezed in the top 10 in tenth place. The skating this year was incredible making it tough for even the oldest skaters which can only be 12 years old to make the cut.

After all was done and hundreds of skaters wowed the crowd and judges with some amazing tricks for this age level. In the expert level Clint finished 6th overall and Mark placed 5th overall in the intermediate division. Watch for both of these team riders to show up and blow up over the next few years.

Already skating at the top of their age level the future for skateboarding looks amazing from these kids.

Congrats need to go out to 3 of our own local area rippers and Graffiti skate zone team riders. Clint Beswick(Palm Bay), Mark Robinson(Palm Bay) and Dustin Drakesmith(Longwood) all traveled up to Atlanta Georgia’s Progressive skate park for the annual “King of the Groms” skate contest qualifier.
What is now the largest under 12 amatuer skate contest in the country draws some of the best talent from all over the US. Skaters compete in street style and mini ramp contest runs hoping to lay down some of the most difficult lines and tricks for skaters in this age range. Today skaters at very young ages skate at the level that many top am or pro skaters do. Thus making this event one to watch for up and coming talent in the skate industry. Large industry sponsors like World Industries (www.worldindustries.com) and Woodward skate camps back and support this event heavily to get a glimpse into the future of skateboarding. The top qualifiers for this event will get a chance to move on to the final event which is held each year in Minnesota at the very famous 3rdlair skate park (www.3rdlair.com).
We are super proud and stoked to announce that all three of our local team riders from GSZ not only ripped all weekend but made the cut to advance to the finals at the 3rdlair skate park on February 19th- 21st 2010. These skaters are the future talent from our area and state that we will sure hear alot about in the next few years.
