1.1 DitchSlap logo_Bustin_Blog

Last week, our team decided to kick-off our first Skate Everything Project challenge of 2016 at one of our favorite annual events, Ditch SLAP, in Albuquerque New Mexico. The concept of our Skate Everything Project events are to inspire and promote skaters thinking outside of the box, get them trying new moves and styles of riding, give away some $$, and well as to promote a universal and open vibe within skateboarding culture. With the help of our team riders William Royce, Josh Dunn—as well as SLAP organizer Joe Lehm—we came up with a fun list of tasks for the registers Ditch SLAP event skaters to do, of which, the participants had to film one of their team members doing the tasks, post to Instagram, and tag and add the appropriate hashtags. At the end we had $500 cash to give to the winning team. Ultimately, the judging was focused on completion of the above, as well as a strong emphasis on Style, Creativity, and Smiles.
