P-Stone Cup 2024 Photos

The fifth annual P-Stone Cup at Lower Bobs, where friends and family gather to celebrate the Big Dog and those no longer with us. It's a major group effort, from all the builders making new stuff, to the artist making an exhilarating rideable canvas and Nasty Neck keeping us entertained on the mic. There are too many to name. Plus we had DJ Fari on the wheels of steel and Noah Peacock blowing things up in the fire all day. Raven Tershy and friends held down a five-star BBQ zone. Yeti kept the drinks on ice. The vibes were high and the money coals en pointe. The Revs were all-time and the skaters left the DIY in cinders. Events like this remind us we are one big family and how special skateboarding is. If you missed it you blew it. C’mon, Tom! —Joe Brook
