On Saturday, 50 pro and am skateboarders, a dozen sponsors and more than 2,000 fans joined Ryan Sheckler in Lake Forest for the Sheckler Foundation’s Skate for a Cause event, presented by etnies. Skateboarders in attendance included Jamie Thomas, Sean Malto, Chris Cole, Tyler Bledsoe, Christian Hosoi, Manny Santiago, Fabrizio Santos, Greg Lutzka, Ryan DeCenzo, Alex Midler and many more. The generous donations from everyone involved totaled $93,000 and will fund future “Be the Change” projects to help injured action sports athletes and children in need.
Christian Hosoi and Sergie Ventura were neck-and-neck in the GoPro Legends Bowl Contest, but when the dust settled Sergie came out on top. Daniel Vargas won the Volcom SkaterCross for the second time and he donated his $3,000 check to the Sheckler Foundation again. Dave Bachinsky won the CCS Tranny Best Trick Contest, Chris Joslin’s won $3,000 in the Tilly’s Stairs, Hubbas and Rails Best Trick Contest.
