Goofy Defeats Regular at etnies Second Annual GvR 

Ronnie Creager’s Technical Skating Leads Goofy Team To Victory

At the second annual GvR of Skateboarding, The Skateboard Mag’s Goofy Team stomped Thrasher Magazine’s Regular Team to claim the title after last year’s upset.  The Goofy Team regained their pride after skateboarders like Team MVP and etnies pro Ronnie Creager, along with his right-foot-forward teammates Jereme Rogers, Nyjah Huston, Darrell Stanton, Colt Cannon and Nilton Neves proved to thousands of onlookers the etnies Skatepark what professional skateboarding is all about—talent, progression, freedom and fun. 

In back of all the skateboarding action, a solid line-up of bands took the stage throughout the weekend starting with The Skulls rocking out during the Pro Bowl Jam on Friday night.  On Saturday, musical highlights included explosive sets by Letter Kills and Pretty Girls Make Graves.  Headliner Bucket of Weenies (B.O.W.), with frontman Chester Bennington of Linkin Park, played an eclectic mix of covers including songs from Elvis Prestly to Oasis and the Beatles.

The Good Life premiere

NOV. 25th 9pm skate park of tampawww.skateparkoftampa.com

NOV. 26 cinema cafe in clearwater door open at 9pm video starts at 9:30pm. www.clearwatercinemacafe.comfor more info go to www.westsideskateshop.com

“The Good Life is the follow up to the underground hit “Dango from Westside Skateshop. It is basically a mockery of the term “the good life, as it shows a life far from what most people would describe as glamorous. But this theme doesn’t consume the viewer because after all, it is a skate video, and the skating and personalities of the featured skaters is what really shines through. It is raw and gritty street skating at it’s best, combined with humor and irony, and it does all this while subtly serving the reminder that “The Good Life can be your life, because it is a term that you define for yourself.

Featured skaters include: John Buchanan, Jimmy Lannon, Danny Renaud, Nick Matlin, Phil Ladjanski, Ryan Nix, Jon Newport, 80′s Joe Staley, John Montesi, Josh Dowd, Mike Rosa, Richie Zuczek, and many more. Produced by John Montesi for Westside Skateshop.
