06 August 2012, 23.20 | Posted in contests, Events, Skateboarding | 1 comment »

The celebration for the Nike x Levi’s® 511™ Skateboarding collaboration continued last week with another exclusive launch party, this time in Los Angeles in partnership with The Berrics. Aside from Braydon Szafranski and Paul Rodriguez in attendance, Omar Salazar was of course also in the building, as he played an integral role in this rather unique collaborative project of the Collection. The skate pro attended the festivities and also demonstrated some of his skills, skating the park during the launch event. As if all of that wasn’t enough, the open bar by Pabst Blue Ribbon, burritos from Wahoo’s Fish Taco Truck and local band Trash Talk sealed the deal. The result was a massive line around the block all day, with kids eager to get in on the action.

If you were one of the unlucky ones that could not make it out, flip through our full picture recap of the event here below.

Rad Collector - Levis Powersliding
This is hilarious! Levi’s is hosting the 3rd Annual Powersliding Championships at the Santa Monica Pier next Wednesday, April 15. What is powersliding you ask? Well if you don’t know its a super rad mix of skateboarding and parkour without all the nerdy parkour stuff where dudes trick off rails and boxes using only their jeans. A look at this video should clear up any confusion.
YouTube Preview Image

The 3rd Annual Powersliding Championships will feature a street course complete with a 40 ft, four story rail and multiple fun boxes, a live show from Matt & Kim, Kogu Korean BBQ trucks and never-shying-from-the-spotlight “celebs” like Jonny Moseley, Wee Man and Kendra Wilkinson, one of Hugh Hefner’s broads. How could you miss that? Full info and another trick vid after the jump.
