A Proclamation of Shredsgiving
That, on this sacred Saturday of November in the year of Skatan twenty-twelve, a year which has been filled with the blessings of fruitful ripping and healthful thane-lines, I do therefore invite my fellow skateboarders in every part of the United Skates—and also those who shred the sea and those who are ripping in foreign lands—to set apart this day, annually, as Secretary of Skate Jeff Budro so chooses, and observe it as a day of Radness and Shredsgiving in celebration of our beneficent forefathers whom hath shreddethed in the hills of days since past.
I hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United Skates upon this consequential page – By The President: Brobrahham Lincolnlog.
Since this Proclamation of Shredsgiving, the Turkey Slide Jam has been celebrated annually, bringing many skaters together from near and far for a feast of thane lines, a polethora of ramp boosters, and a swag-toss like no other. For the past two years, the event has had its changes—with the move of location from that one hill in San Clemente to this one hill in San Diego. Regardless, the festivus know as the Turkey Slide Jam continues delivering action-packed fun for all who attend. This year, the celebration was spent flowing through pack runs, boosting off the launch ramp, and kicking out every slide imaginable. The day proceeded with good cheer and via the universal language of high fives, “Yeaaaaaah Bro!”, and the repeated question “Dude. Did you get my picture?” As the day progressed—and later commenced— all the different skaters had fun with their shred-bothers and shred-sisters and gifts of thane-lines and wheel-chunks were left on the road for all to see in rememberance.
Big Thanks To:
Jeff Budro, Sector 9, Muirskate, Gullwing Truck Co., Rad Designs, and everyone else who made this event possible. Also, thanks to the locals who let us skate in peace & gnarmony and thusly did not shout “Locals Only!”
