If you were in the City of Toledo on Sunday, September 16th, chances are, you may have heard a disturbance in the ordinarily tranquil atmosphere. A rumbling of voices and the echo of music could be heard over the sounds of cheering spectators; The members of the community at the Toledo public skate park were fortunate to witness the 2nd Annual, Toledo Summer Skate Jam, Hosted by Ocean Pulse Skate Shop.

The Toledo Summer Skate Jam, was a time to celebrate fellowship through art in motion. Outside of the skateboarding community, people rarely see the hard work and dedication practiced by most skateboarders. The sheer amount of skill, balance and fearlessness required to perform each maneuver, can only be achieved through routine practice and with support amongst family and peers. The Skate Jam was a flawless presentation of children and young adults, expressing their interpretation of skateboarding, and the strong bonds formed between one another.

Like other artistic productions, feelings of performance anxiety were expressed by many participants, as they battled head to head for Skate Jam glory. Heats that consisted of four to six participants at a time, required control on the board as well as awareness of other skaters. Amid collisions with the concrete and each other, only a single injury, requiring a Band-Aid was reported, and was promptly attended to by the Toledo Police Department.

Before the final heat, local skateboarding Professional, Kevin Kowalski put his talents on display. As Kevin flew high above the heads of even the tallest spectators, one could not help but wonder, how this Seal Rock native looked so comfortable floating high above the concrete below. Kowalski gifted an autographed copy of his very first Pro model skateboard, which was given away as a raffle item, along with other items donated by Ocean Pulse, Vans, Sector 9, Bones, Powell, Dug Fur, Volcom, Lifeblood Skateboards, Benton County Skateboarding Alliance, Dakine, and Pepsi. Thanks to the products donated, Ocean Pulse was able to raise almost three hundred dollars, for the Toledo Food Pantry. Currently, the Lincoln County Food Share can purchase five pounds of food per dollar.
