Great to see high level amateur skateboarders wearing helmets during a street event>>>>.
A very warm day greeted skateboarders for the 2nd Miner Threat Mini Ramp Jam in Rossland, BC. There was a buzz at the ramp as this land will be the site of the 15,000 sq ft concrete heaven.
In the Under 14′s Levi Peirson of Winlaw just edged out Cosmo Rich of Nelson and Phalen Miller of Slocan.
In the 15+ group ten skaters pushed themselves to show the spectators some grassroots skateboarding. After a good jam session Cosmo Rich of Nelson took first place followed by Tross of Rossland and Justin Moroz of Blewitt in third.
Best trick ended up being a skate off between Tross of Rossland (white helmet) and Trevor Frame of Castlegar (skating). Trevor got the nod from the skaters in the end.
As this was the last event of the 2011 Kootenay Skateboard Series we were happy to have forfilled our mission of bringing Kootenay skateboarders together to share the joy of skateboarding.
Big thanks to all the contest organizers, spectators, local and series sponsors.

Trevor Morgan, of New Line Skateparks, put on a slick presentation to a small crowd of skaters, public and city officials last night in Trail. The skateboarders were super excited to share their dreams for a unique space. A general good feeling was shared by everyone that Trail can create a welcoming place for the entire community.
The photo below is a feature design style which Trail may look to incorporate. In 6 weeks time New Line will have mockups available.
“Ed Benedict Skate Park was designed by Newline Skateparks and built by California Skateparks the plaza-style park features a variety of bank, ledge and gap terrain and a miniramp-style section at one of the entrances. Dan Garland designed several skateable art obstacles under the concept Tread Lightly. The design also includes stormwater treatment features incorporated as gaps.” source: Skaters for Portland Skateparks
