Registration is open for this year’s Ithaca Slide Jam, going down on April 27th in Ithaca, NY. Cost is $40 to skate one of the gnarliest hills in Ithaca with one of the raddest group of freeride skaters from all over not only the East Coast, but United States (and even Toronto, Canada). This is one of the must-attend events and you absolutely won’t be disappointed.
Much of the Comet Team will be on hand and shredding, including our good friend Brian Peck, Liam Morgan, Jesse Breiman, Eric Jensen, Blake Smith, Pam Diaz as well as Marcus Bandy from Wheelbase Magazine and Scott Lembach from Muirskate.
Make sure to include your e-mail so you can get a receipt. You’ll need to print this and bring it to the event as proof of purchase. If you’re under 18 you’ll also need a completed waiver. It’s not clear if you’ll need one if you’re over 18, but it’s likely. You can find the waiver here.
You’ll also need to be rocking a helmet, no exceptions. Other than that the event is going to be laid back and tons of fun.

We are keeping the event super simple. Grab your board and take as many runs as you like. The hill is steep and smooth, and we’re filling it with shred-worthy goodness. We look at this hill every day and wish there were no cars on it. On Saturday 4/27, that will come true and we are stoked to skate it with you.
This is how slide jams are supposed to be done and is a vanguard for east coast jams. With last year being such a big hit we can’t see what the guys up North came up with as a follow-up. Make sure to see our event post for more critical info about the jam. Have you registered yet?
EVENT RUNS FROM 9AM-5PM!
