2009 Seismic US Nationals of Slalom Skateboard Racing

We had 40 skaters in 4 divisions and pulled off 4 events in 2 days. It was a huge task but we were able to get it all in and everyone had a fun time! Killer racing, good times and no one got seriously injured. We got tons of local publicity and the crowds were pretty big for being such an isolated location. All-in-all it was nice time.

The cash prize purse was big, the swag table even bigger and those of you who came out and set up tents just added to the festivities. All the riders left stoked and a bunch of new kids got introduced to the sport!

Below is a up we posted on and with the results of the top finishers in each event and some links to some of the publicity that we got for the event.

Thanks again to all of our AWESOME sponsors and to everyone who helped out to make this weekend go off. • SEISMIC • Allboards Sports • Sk8Kings • TimeShip • Tactics Racing • Abec 11 • Dan Dengler Longboards • Curve, INC • Folliage Printing • Voltage Advertising • Colorado Sk8 School • Splitfire • City of Lafayette • Skate Colorado • Banshee Bungee • Monster Energy Drink • PPS • Khiro • Woodword Copper • Mary/Acupuncture Clinic • Sk8Sister • Radikal • Nitro • GOG • Pavel • Venom Bushings • Black Ops • MOB Skateboards • Greg Fadell • Oskar Blue’s Brewery • Empire Lounge, they hosted our after party and let us do the awards ceremony there as well since there was a lightning storm on the hill, we took over the entire place (those poor people trying to eat sunday dinner with the family) If you ever come out this way, stop in a check out the official race poster signed by all the racers the owner requested. It will be framed and hung appropriatly over the bar.
