Just a quick shout out to Geoff Dermer and the boys – don’t forget to show up at Chuck Bailey Skate Park tonight for the Freaks and Geeks Demo to pay your respects.
I’ll be there hosting the event, we’ll be having a BBQ around 6pm followed by a Demo from the Kitsch Team, a Best Trick Contest and a showing of the Bric-a-Brac Video on the Urban Screen (The outside wall of the building).
The Kitsch guys cover all grounds and rip shit up, with style. They’re a local skateboard company out of Vancouver consisting of Mike Hastie, Cory Wilson, Stacy Gabriel, Will Blakley, Sean Macalister and the man Geoff Dermer. Dermer was actually the first skater I met when we moved out to British Columbia from Ontario back in 1998. We hooked up with a friend of a friend who’s roommate was dating Geoff and we all hung out. I never thought at that moment that I would be hosting a Demo for his skateboard company at a skate park I get paid to organize and run events at with a skate shop that I’m sponsored by (Coastal Riders) 14 years later. Now that’s a tight knit family…

See ya tonight
