October 1, 2011. Words alone can not describe how insanely gnarly and fun this event was. Muir skate is always pushing the limits farther and making everything bigger. This was no different. The event featured an insane 4′ tall kicker ramp called the Ishmael where riders were pushing the limits. Muir Skate knows how to push the sport with innovation and a lot of progression happens at their events. The course looked like a snowboard park. A ride on rail at the top. Then a variety of different size jumps to hit on your way down the hill.

The Ishmael was the highlight of the event. It propelled riders into orbit as they soared over onlookers heads. Big 360′s, 180′s, no comply’s and launch after launch off the ramp. There’s no way riders didn’t go home at the end of the day without bent trucks, bruised elbows, hips and sore feet/knees.
Duke Degan was trying for 360′s and 180′s all day off the big kicker
We started off the day headed toward Loretta St but soon altered directions after receiving word that the first hill was shut down by the po po 5-0 keeping us all safe. The event was moved to pump station the back up hill where we were not bothered.

We don’t remember who the winners were but we can tell you that Daniel Luna, Jimmy Riha, Duke Degan, Seth Brown and ANdrew Schumaker were all shredding super hard, trying new tricks and putting on a show.

The event also featured a longest slide competition, a hard wheel competition and a soft wheel competition which had an open class and a grom class. – Leecifer
