Due to construction delays related to the Lee & Joe Jamail Skatepark renovation project Skatestock V will be rescheduled for Saturday, October 28th (Houston Fall provides our next weather cool down window.). Peace, Love & Skateboards!
Skatestock III will be a Celebration of Skateboarding’s Legends, Live Music, and Art. This event connects the dots between Skateboarding; Surfing; Art; Music & Science…. Skateboarders Past and Present.
Skatestock is a grass-roots effort to raise funds and awareness for the http://www.morganmossfoundation.org.
Skatestock is FREE! It is Not a competition or a demonstration. It is a Skate Session; a chance to Meet and Greet the Legends; an Art Show; a Concert; and above all else a chance to Skate, Rock and Honor!
These icons of skateboarding discovered/created what we now refer to as pool/bowl skateboarding. Moreover, the aerial tricks employed in the 2014 Austin X Games, and the 2014 Sochi Olympic Snowboard 1/2 pipe Competition, are based on the maneuvers these men pioneered. The design and construction of the Lee and Joe Jamail Skatepark and our newest park, Spring/Houston were heavily influenced by their Skate-Styles and Skatepark Design Ideas.
Moreover, American culture and music of American Punk Rock were heavily influenced and altered by these visionaries. These legends were the First “Skate-Punks” in America! In Texas we would not have the Big Boys music or the popular Austin music festival, Fun Fun Fun they inspired.
Adrian Lenardic, Ph.D., Physics will be conducting unique experiments on skater-velocity and G-force readings. If you are passionate about bowl skating you are also interested in skater-physics. Welcome to Sk8lab Houston!

Skatestock is a very unique experience in sport and culture. It is the equivalent in baseball circles of having the opportunity to meet and greet Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, Mickey Mantle and Lou Gehrig (If they were actually all still alive.). And then proceed to play catch and hit balls with these Hall of Famers. Whether you are a fan of Skateboarding, Art, Live-Music or all three this is must see entertainment
Keep on Double Truckin!
