Kenny’s backyard bash – Colorado

If you’re into beer, hot dogs, decked rocks and tent cities Kenny’s backyard bash is the place to be. This year’s contest brought rippers as young as 11 from all over Colorado and the surrounding states to skate. Watching people of all skill levels, ages and genders attempt to skate the pit in his backyard is important to Kenny so he has four divisions, “dudes who suck”, “chicks who rip”, “masters”, and “pros” in addition, “best trick while drinking a beer”, “best trick while smoking weed”, and “worst slam”. This year did not come up short on ripping, good times, or partying and I highly advise you to show up next year.
