DENVER’S UNDERGROUND MINI RAMP
The cat’s out of the bag. We’ve got a 10’ x 3’ miniramp built by the legendary Tim Glomb (with help of Chrome’s own Bradd Rigoni) in the basement of our Denver Hub. We couldn’t think of a better spot to kick off the launch of our collab with legendary skate knuckleheads, Antihero Skateboards than to head to the basement of the Denver Hub and rip it up with the homies.
We kicked off at 6:00PM with cold beer from our homies at PBR and pizza from pizza shop/venue The Marquee. For the first hour we chilled – drinking beers, eating pizza, throwing high fives and checking out the Antihero x Chrome gear we’d set out in the small art gallery in the back of the hub, then it was time to bust out the tricks.
Roughly 20 people took part in the contest including some heads from legendary Denver 303 skate shop and even a mom and son combo! The contest ran for about forty minutes with tricks going down like kickflip back lip, ollie impossible nose picks, inverts (which is fucking insane on a ramp this small), frontside kickflip to disaster, fakie bigflip to backside noseblunt… The list goes on and on.
We brought in Tim Glomb to perform judge duties and get the crowd hyped – he even did a live broadcast of the event on Instagram. When the dust settled, 303 employee and all-around fucking ripper, Jake Biggers stood out among the pack. It wasn’t just one trick that won it for him. Literally every trick he did was a mind blower. Dude straight up put on a clinic.
The event was a blast and we look forward to the next one. Thanks to PBR, Tim Glomb and Antihero skateboards for making the first jam on the mini ramp one for the record books.
