    Default FEB 2nd Am Only Contest at Aliso Beach

    Taking place on February 2nd, 2008 at Aliso Creek Beach.

    www.greeneggsandam.com

    Paulo Prietto and Steve Taylor have put together an event just for the up and comers. Any amatuer at any age level is welcome.

    We are going to run three divisions. Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. If you have any questions as to what division you should place yourself in, please don't be shy to ask. We will give you an honest opinion and help you decide where you will fit best.

    The goal of this event is to give the youth another chance to fine tune their skills and also a chance for the people that normally don't enter contests to jump in and give it a shot in a fun atmosphere.

    I apologize for the late notice, it is much harder to convince the city that skimboarding events are a good thing for the community than we had planned. Acquiring permits and insurance has been a rough road, but we've made it finally and would love to see anyone you can make it to come out and enter and have a good time.

    I will post the flyer as soon as it is finished. (Hopefully tonight) Please email me if you have any questions at all. My email address is r.stevetaylor@gmail.com

    Thanks!

    Steve

    i wish i could fly out for this. if i wasn't going to cabo i would think about it.
    Undaunted, I knew the game was mine to win. Just like in life, all of my successes depend on me. I'm the man who has the ball, I'm the man who can throw it faster than frack. So that is why I am better than everyone in the world. Kiss my ass and suck my dick, everyone.

    Sick a contest early in the year! I'm AM I believe. I'm advanced right? I don't want to be a dick and go Intermediate if it's a bunch of little kids or something.
    Even though they're all probably better than me.

    The 3 age division idea is to create more competitive heats among the riders. Often there are riders who consistently perform well in their age division and want to compete against the older crowd. Conversely, there are often riders who consistently struggle in their respective age divisions and may feel discouraged from competing in general. This format encourages the discouraged and challenges the competent. It basically allows riders of all ages to compete against others that are at the same level without any age restrictions to promote progression and fun for all.

    I hope many will come out. There are not many contests in Laguna and we hope to change that.

    i really like that format, steve/paulo. i don't really agree with contestants in contests being divided by age. cool that you're doing this.
