Skatestock III "Skate-Rock and Honor"
Skatestock is a free family event. It is not a competition nor a demonstration. It is open skate session, a chance to meet and greet the legends, see live painting by internationally recognized artists and enjoy a powerful lineup of Houston's best bands.
These icons of skateboarding discovered and created what we now refer to as pool/bowl skateboarding. The aerial tricks employed in the 2014 Austin X Games and the 2014 Sochi Olympic Snowboard 1/2 pipe Competition are based on the maneuvers these men pioneered.
The design and construction of the Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark and Houston's newest park, Greenspoint, were heavily influenced by their skate styles and skatepark design ideas.
Special guests include Stacy Peralta, Tony Alva, Steve Olson, Lance Mountain, Steve Alba, John Gibson, Wally Inouye, Craig Johnson, Doug Saladino, Chris Strople, Jerry Valdez, Brian Brannon and Tim Kerr.
All funds raised will benefit the Morgan Moss Foundation, a nonprofit committed to supporting student photographers and art programs in schools.
