Sorry, not sorry, all the content for the next few days is definitely going to involve the comp. I want to write a bit about this weekend as a whole.
Sometimes, motivation to do this fluctuates. Some weeks I feel like going hard in pushing out content and doing all this revolving SMC, and some weeks I feel the “whats the point” feeling. Next time I feel lack of motivation though, I’m going to think about this weekend. The amount of energy and hunger that’s still left in this niche scene we all know and love is absolutely thriving. From the street sessions, the house hangouts, to talking about fixed gear, the FOAD video premiere, and the competition itself, all of it has so much electricity still. I know the running half-joke is that FGFS is dead, but now I know that with a little CPR everyone comes to life.
I want to first of all thank everybody for coming out. We had people travel from all over the place just to come to this little event we put on and that’s all I could ask for from the scene. Seattle, Salt Lake City, NorCal, Inland Empire, and even Europe!
Second, I wanna thank the people and sponsors who helped make the event as smooth and as exciting as possible. Pizza, Deacon, Suzie, Jacob, Matt, Jackson, Calvin for the music, Kareem, Montana Ricky, Ritchie, and all the other sponsors.
Suzie tried to count everyone that came at one point, and she counted over 100 people that showed out. That beats all 5 previous years that we’ve been throwing competitions. I don’t know about you, but that is incredibly motivating.
Anyways, thanks for reading. My heart is full. Here’s some pictures from mostly my phone and some other’s phones from the whole weekend. We’ll be back next year but hopefully I don’t need to wait a whole year to see most of you guys. Stay tuned for our official video recap!
