The 10th Annual Tim Brauch Contest

Scotts Valley, CA, September 30, 2008- This year's 10th Annual Tim Brauch Memorial Contest took place this past weekend and was definitely the most memorable event to date. Friends, family, and local skaters all came out this past Saturday and Sunday in memory of Tim Brauch, who was and is one of the most respected skaters of all time. Tim’s great talent and willingness to help local youth in skateboarding is what has kept this contest going for 10 years and that is why the leaders of skateboarding came to compete in this great contest.
Saturday, September 27 street contest that was held at the Scotts Valley Skate Park built in memory of Tim Brauch through the Tim Brauch Memorial Fund was a huge success with 35 groms and 82 ams entries all of which skated to the music of DJ D’Funkt. Sessions held 2 raffle drawings each day of the contest that included prizes from Skullcandy, Vans, Zune, Dakine, Dragon, Consolidated, Dwindle, Thrasher, Bones, Foundation, Nixon, Crucible and many more. Press including Fuel TV were on sight to catch all the action at this years contest including Best Trick made Blake Svendsen which got him hooked up with a $250.00 Wahoo’s Fish Tacos Gift Certificate.

Sunday’s contest hosted by World Cup of Skateboarding was at the new Lake Cunningham Regional Skate Park in San Jose, CA. Throughout the entire day this park was referred to as the “Best Park in the World” most likely because it is the largest skate park in California at 68,000 square feet and features the worlds longest full pipe, tallest vert wall and largest cradle. Not only was the 10th Annual Tim Brauch Memorial Contest at the best skate park but we also had the best pros and legends of skateboarding come out to compete in the contest including Christian Hosoi, Steve Caballero, Duane Peters, Benji Galloway and Jimmi the Greek. The ladies went first in the day and totally killed it! Congratulations!
