When: April 26-28th
Where: Top of Buffalo St. (at Eddy St.) in Ithaca, NY
One of the East Coast’s biggest events is back for 2013! Comet Skateboards is putting on what’s sure to be a rad weekend of skateboarding. In addition to the main event on Saturday the 27th, there will be a fundraiser/bowl session at DIY spot on friday afternoon, and an outlaw race on Sunday. Location on the race will be announced at a later date, however inside sources are telling me this is a pretty burly course at around 45mph with some tight corners. For those who weren’t at the event last year (myself included), this is definitely not one to miss. With the slide jam hill closed off to traffic, the guys at Comet will have plenty of freedom to build gnarly obstacles without any worries about the law interrupting our fun. If ramps aren’t your thing, the slide jam hill is steep enough for everyone to have fun on.
Check some of the gnarly videos by Comet and the Skate Invaders of last year’s epic Ithaca Slide Jam.
