Kalani David cracks the top 5 at the 13th Annual Tim Brauch Memorial Contest

Kalani was destroying the pool at the SJ Lake Cunningham skatepark. He was blasting big Stalefishes, 540's, kickflip indy's, stalefish to disaster over the hip, and more to make the top 5 in his 3rd pro contest. Grom prospects Seth Sanders and CJ Collins were both ripping the pool and showing that the future looks bright!

Pedro & Duane at the Portland Invitational

Pedro, Duane, and Kalani headed up to Portland over the weekend for the Portland Invitational. After Kalani's 9th at Coastal Carnage he jumped into the deep waters of the massive Dew Bowl. Kalani didn't make the cut, but still ripped the bowl. DP skated with his trademark style.

Chris Miller sums it up it best
DP. Duane is of course the master of disaster and legendary Punk Rock icon of skateboarding. My memories of Duane are seeing him at Upland combi with his black and red striped Santa Cruz board and leopard dyed hair. Edgers on his Blackhart wheels and absolute critical skating in the heaviest pool of all time. Santa Cruz was also my first sponsor and I remember hanging out with Olson, DP and Salba in awe. I also remember Duane being the top competitor of his time along with his tech rival - Eddie Elguera. Duane was punk, but don't forget that he has always been an incredible contest skater who went head to head with Eddie: style and attitude against technique and training at numerous events throughout the early 80's. Duane's attitude of commitment and emotion shaped mine and many others approach to skateboarding and life. Elguera was awesome too but DP defined passion and the go for broke spirit of skateboarding that made it a lifestyle and not just another sport. The fact that at 50 he skates the way he does blows my mind.

Pedro was killing it with high speed lines, huge airs, and big transfers. In the end it was close between him and Bucky, with Bucky just edging Pedro out for the win.
