Office Booyz Skate Round 2 @ ASR Hits San Diego August 2010


If you never went pro, lost your pop, complain about old injuries, but still skate for the love of hot nasty speed and the sweet sound of grindin' any ledge in your path, we're looking for you! Office Booyz is the non-contest, contest for FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES IN THE ACTION SPORTS INDUSTRY.

Whether it's for bragging rights aroudn the office, or merely to show up and heckle your co-worker(s), YOUR TIME TO SHINE IS NOW...OR NOT...IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER. All you have to do is show, skate and have a good time to be a contender for the best prize and cold hard cash. Past categories include: Animal Shinner (worst shin banger), Blue Balls (person who wussed out/stood around), Hesh to Death (tranny champ), and many more.

Office Booyz was created by Karl Fuhre and his friends four years ago in Vancouver, Canada. What started out as a few friends getting together to have a snowboard competition amongst fellow “Desk Jockies,” is now a full blow international contest series. Karl put on the first Office Booyz Skate Contest in Van', but he was ever so gracious as to let us bring OBz to the states.
