On September 20th, 2014, Ceebs Skatepark (The Courts in Conception Bay South, NL) held host to the first skate comp in three years.
In case anybody missed it, or you’re just getting brought up to date through this post now, two great locals recently put together the best skateboarding video to come out of Newfoundland to-date.
For “Nitty Gritty”, which premiered this passed June, Jacob White and Jared Hawco stacked film from around the St. John’s area onto footage collected during their winter trip skateboarding in China this passed February.
Newfoundland fosters a unique and original skating style and it’s no surprise to locals because the streets themselves are on a level of their own. Having been described as a mini-San Francisco, it takes no stretch of the imagination to believe how challenging it can be.
