The Hoodgames started in 2005, by K-dub and myself. We set out to have one simple principal, to uplift the youth. Since 2005, we have steadily set up events all throughout Northern California, and now we've started with our Southern California efforts. Every time, the events get bigger and bigger, and more people come out to support the cause. This time, thanks to the likes of Adelmo Jr, Paul Rodriguez, Chany Jeanguenin, Walker Ryan, Chico Brenes, Chris Haslam, and such companies as Organika Skateboards, Nike SB, LRG and Vitamin Water, we had our biggest success yet. Next time you want to support the skateboarding youth, please come and skate with us at the Hoodgames!—Karl Watson
