After the first few minutes of the roller derby there was already tons of action as girls slammed, checked and tripped each other.

Two girls (one from each team) would start at the back of the pack wearing stars on their helmets making them the Jammers for the team. The Jammers would score points by passing all the blockers. Everyone who wasn’t a Jammer was a Blocker with the mission to stop the Jammers from passing at all costs.

Each pass made by the Jammer earned the team 3 points.

The match up was the Dukebox Heroes (in the white shirts) vs. the Buns & Roses (in the black shirts). Both teams battled hard for the win. The skating rink was their battlefield.

The rules? Well, there aren’t many. Anything goes here.

After seeing flying fists, elbows being thrown, roller skates taken to the thigh and even many more slide tackles the Dukebox Heroes took the win with a final score of 87-81.

Visit the Renegade Roller girls of Orange County website to find more info about their upcoming matches and find them on Facebook. The matches occur at the Holiday Skate Center in Orange, California.

A killer local band named Tyranis played for the halftime show.

“Left side the road’s a dangerous place.” Offspring says it best in their song Bad Habit. When skateboarding on roads that are not closed obeying the laws of the road can be a lifesaver.

Staying in your lane, staying with in your limits and being aware of your surroundings will go a long ways. It just takes the one turn where you exit into the opposite lane with an oncoming car to damage or end your life.

Guard rails, cars, motorcycles, rocks and other solid objects are all things that can hurt you, but by skating safely you can do your whole life.

It’s not a race, be safe, wear your helmets and have fun!

It was another day at the Poway Pump Station as the crew met up for SDDRL #30. After pulling up and seeing such a rad crew of rippers, I knew it would be a good day of racing and hanging out with all the homies.

Joe Marshall leads Jimmy Riha and Max Capps into the bottom section of the course

There was a good mix of racers with all sorts of backgrounds. There were skateboard legends, professional riders, new racers and groms all in the mix competing for trophies, cash and glory.

The 2011 Dragon Skate Race held on California Ave in the University of California Irvine was a day full of fun and excitement for everyone.

Tyler Hampson and Spencer Adams fully suited up

The event was hosted by UC Irvine’s Beta Theta Pi as a charity event to help raise money for the The Free Wheelchair Mission which is a nonprofit organization that helps provide wheelchairs to people in developing countries that can’t afford one. The wheelchairs cost $59.20 to manufacture.

The race was not held on a very exciting course however the addition of hay bails at the end caused for some great crashes and excitement for the crowd.

Setting up the second wall in stopping riders from hitting the street

Some riders would pin it full speed launching off their boards exploding through the hay bails landing in the street on the other side. Hay bails would disintegrate as riders bailed through them at over 30 m.p.h.

Other riders chose to throw a slide or foot brake before hitting the painfully hard hay bails while lots more riders avoided them completely.

Full padding and helmets were required for all riders. The cost of entry was $10 which got you 2 runs. Each additional run was $5.

The course was set up with a high tech timing system using wires in the ground that would start and then stop the times as riders would cross over them.

Congratulations to:

1st place- Jimmy Riha

Tie for 2nd Place- Peter Kell & Jeff Budro

3rd Place- Austin Nicassio

Around 11am everyone met just past the finish line ready to race, or ready to enjoy the race. SDDRL (San Diego Downhill Racing League) was at it again with race #24. The hill known as “The Wall” featured a hidden 10′ mega bowl just past the finish line. Everyone was stoked. Racers kicked from the starting line the pinned it to the finish line. This hill is just a straight away that goes straight down a large hill with beautiful surroundings. It was a fun race and a few first time racers came out. There was some confusion to the way the whole event was being run, but at the end off the day everyone had a good time.

1st- Mike Montjoy
