RedBull Drop In Tour – Jacksonville Florida

Kona was stoked to host the Red Bull “Drop In” Tour on Wednesday, February 20th

The weather was looking bad and we thought a rainy school night would produce a low turnout. But Thrasher Magazine’s Skater Of The Year Jamie Foy, Real Skateboards pro Zion Wright and last-minute addition Red Bull Pro, Ryan Sheckler, sat for hours signing autographs for a seemingly endless line of Jacksonville’s skateboarding finest.  The rain didn’t hit until the actual minute the Pro’s arrived, so, unfortunately, they never got a chance to skate.  But huge sessions in the street course and other areas of the park were ensuing for several hours leading up to their arrival.

Burgers and Hot Dogs were flowing off the grill and Red Bull had a DJ throwing out tunes . . . until the eventual falling out of the skies.  But that didn’t deter anyone from having fun and the skating continued for a while even as the rain came down.  Hoping it would pass quickly, many stayed outside under tents and shelters, while the Kona Clubhouse was standing room only for one of the largest autograph lines I have seen.  It was reminiscent of a Tony Hawk Tour.  Jamie, Zion, and Ryan were all super cool and took their time with everyone in line.  Taking selfies, chugging Red Bulls with fans, and even signing a butt cheek or two were not a problem.

Century St Clean Up Party!

Century St Cleanup
March 23rd, 2018

Kona isn’t in the best of neighborhoods.  Been that way since day one.  In fact, the nickname given to this area is “Sin City”.  Needless to say, the kids in this neighborhood have a rough go of it.  So, when the Boys and Girls Club located in the heart of Woodland Acres (the actual name of the neighborhood) reached out to see if Kona could plan an event for their kids, we saw it as an opportunity to work with the community, clean up our area, and create some good will.  The plan was to spend the morning picking up the trash and debris on Century St., and then have a cookout, get some skate lessons and just have a general good time with the kids.  What ended up happening went way beyond that vision.

Thanks to the hard work of Sharon London at the Boys and Girls Club of Woodland Acres, who had a whole host of city agencies, and our own city council district representative, Joyce Morgan/Danford, attend.  Police officers came out and kept the streets safe while kids cleaned. Jax Fire and Rescue Department sent Engine #19 with three firemen that helped pick up trash, and everything else (they truly jumped in and got their hands dirty). Dan Drubec from Clean It up, Green It Up provided all the supplies.  Local businesses and business leaders also pitched in.  Gus Gustafson from Space Walk of Jacksonville provided a bounce house for the kids, Carey Bean of Kona Ice (not related to Kona Skate Park) provided FREE snowy ice treats, and John Phillips from the Law Offices of John Phillips was here to present twenty lucky participants with FREE, brand-new skateboards.  So after cleaning up Century St, eating some burgers, playing in the bounce house, getting skate lessons (thank you Boards For Bro’s, Allie and Billy), winning complete skateboards and then hanging out with City Council representatives, local service members of Police and Fire Departments, community leaders and some of the coolest kids I have ever met . . . I was truly overwhelmed and super stoked!

A HUGE thanks to my family, Laurie, Cassidy, Roxanne and Scarlet for helping set everything up, cooking the food and getting their hands dirty on Century St.  Board’s for Bro’s providing the equipment for the lessons, to Billy and Allie our instructors, Gus for the Bounce House, Carey Bean for the frozen treats, John Phillips for the free skateboards, Joyce Morgan/Danford for getting the city services involved and Sharon London for bringing three chapters of the Boys and Girls Club.  According to Dan from “Clean It Up, Green It Up” it was “one of the best, if not THE best”, clean-up he has been involved with.  We couldn’t have done it without all the community support and looking forward to doing it again.  –  Martin Ramos, Kona Skate Park.
