VIDEO Seth Brown WORDS & PHOTOS Marcus Bandy
Some claim that the Broadway Bomb is a race, some suggest it’s a skateboarding critical-mass, others say it’s a protest, and there are even those who refer to it as a “skateboarding parade”. To us here at Wheelbase, the Broadway Bomb is little more than an excuse—an excuse to rally together friends from all over the world for a weekend-long celebration of NYC and it’s vibrant and diverse skate community. Anywho, please sit back and enjoy our video and pictorial feature of this year’s Broadway Bomb Weekend.
We’d like to also add that we were super stoked to see the focus of this year’s Broadway Bomb Weekend shift away from simply the one single event and morph into smaller community events, sessions, and parties. Uncle Funky’s, Sector 9, us, and The Longboard Loft all had small community events in the city throughout the entire weekend, and they went off without a hitch. No cops, no issues. Much fun was had! We hope this multi-event concept grows even further next year. Anyway, below is that collection of images we mentioned above—please peruse. We hope to see you all in NYC next year, homies!
A huge thanks to Coolhands and his roommates for hosting us, his cat four cuddling us, Seth and Sami for generally being radical, The Longboard Loft for letting us lurk hard and have a home base, Jeff and his lovely wife of Uncle Funky’s for hosting a rad potluck and for supporting the community in general, all the homies at Bustin Boards of course, Earthwing Skateboards, EG and Rob of Sector 9, Wo Hop, Jamie, Razor, Kong, NYCL, Push Culture, Muir Skate, Beer, Wholefoods, each and everyone of our supporters who make adventures like these possible, and all of NYC and it’s shred community for doing what you do and for providing endless shredables. Thank you kindly!
