The 5th Annual IASC Skateboarding Summit was our most successful event to date. We had over 100 of the industry's best and brightest in attendance for two days of education, networking and fun.
The fun was headlined by premieres of Waiting for Lightning, Bones Brigade: An Autobiography and the 3rd Annual Skateboarding Hall of Fame and Icon Awards. Nearly 400 people from every generation of skateboarding packed the ballroom to honor Hall of Fame Inductees Danny Bearer, Peggy Oki, Jay Adams, Mark Gonzales and Icon Award winners John Humprey, Frank Nasworthy, Glen E. Friedman and Black Flag.
The action was capped off by some amazing skating across the street at Vans as Pedro Barros edged out Rune Glifberg for the win at the Pro Tec Pool Party Contest. It felt like 1988 as the Bones Brigade once again asserted their dominance with Cab, Tony and Lance going 1, 2, 3 in the Master's Division.
We're in the process of finalizing arrangements for next year's Summit, stay tuned for all the info on what is quickly becoming the can't miss industry event of the year.
