HHF Coach/Mentor, Eliza Gonzalez, hosted an all-ages skate jam and best trick contest on June 5th at the Forest Park (PZ) Skatepark in Queens. Featuring free food and beverages, cash prizes, giveaways, and a massive product toss, the Queens Skate Jam was an excellent way to kick-off the summer skate season in NYC.

Homage Skateboards turns 15 this June, and to celebrate this major milestone they’ve teamed up with pro skater/artist Alexis Sablone for a limited-edition deck collaboration.
Now available through the Homage website and in-store, a portion of proceeds from each deck sold will be donated to the Harold Hunter Foundation, Skateistan, and The Skatepark Project.
"I was happy to design a series for Homage because I love what they’re about and everything they do for the local skate community. For me, every creative process starts with too many directions and only through drawing and redrawing does one idea continue to reappear—to stick. I can’t say why it happens, but it does, and it's that idea I try to run with. With a series like this one, once I have one small piece decided, I like to build a narrative around it to find the others. The resultant story might not be fully coherent or even readily apparent to others, but it’s a story, to me, nonetheless, that ties everything together." -Alexis Sablone
