Ever wanted to party with the San Diego County Olympic skateboarders? – NBC 7 San Diego
This year has been a revolutionary year for skateboarding, especially for the United States National and Olympic Skateboarding Teams and after an eventful year, pro skateboarders have a lot to celebrate.
For the first time skateboarding events were included in the Olympics, USA Skateboarding hosted virtual national championships and launched its âSkateboarding for Allâ initiative to give kids their first experience on a skateboard.
Our own San Diego native skater Cory Juneau proudly won the bronze medal at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. “California Live” has a conversation with Juneau about what it was like to be one of the first Olympic skaters ( skate was one of the four new summer Olympic sports) and what that means for its future.
Now, the members, staff and friends of the United States National Skateboard Team are celebrating the highlights of 2021.
On December 11, the U.S. National Team and International Olympians will join other skate legends in Carlsbad for the 2021 American Skateboarding Year-End Party, where they will relive this year’s best moments.
The film will feature highlights from 2021, interviews with team members and a special performance by acclaimed skater and musician Ray Barbee.
