ASF team members were recently invited to participate in an interesting project with Tampa Bay Blvd. Elementary School in West Tampa, and Art For The Sky. Art for the Sky is a unique art form created by artist Daniel Dancer, where detailed scenes are laid out on the ground and viewed from the sky. What makes this a unique project is that the participants get to become part of the art! Approximately 850 students and staff took part in this image, and is one that they will never forget!
Daniel and his son are fellow kiteboarders from the Columbia River Gorge area in Oregon, and have completed many unique living art scenes that always carry a positive message.
Check out the 2012 Trial By Trick Wakeskate Jam and Block Party that went down on April 21,2012 over in Orlando. This event had been scheduled to take place in downtown Orlando, but due to the weather and last minute issues, it was moved to the Kevin Sutton 'compound" on Lake Jessamine.
Special thanks to out host Jerrod Waters of Homegrown Winches, Kevin Sutton Show, Future 6 Clothing, Donkboard, Crowd Control, R2R productions, and 3 Days TV.
This weekend, Action Sports Foundation partnered with Ucanski2, Liquid Access, and St Pete Parks and Rec Dept. for an amazing day of adaptive kayak and waterski clinics for area disabled veterans. This awesome day on the water took place at Lake Seminole in St. Petersburg, and we couldn't have asked for better weather!
The ASF team has had the honor of working with UCanSki2 at several adaptive waterski events over the years through our partners over at the Tampa VA. Their adaptive ski and wakeboard programs are top notch, and founder Ann O'Brine Satterfield, has assembled not only the safest, most progresssive adaptive ski program around, but also an all-star team of volunteers to run the programs. There is a lot of work and logistics that go into these clinics, Ann and her staff are truly professionals at what they do and it was inspiring to see them work.
Action Sports Foundation had the honor of hosting several area Boys and Girls Clubs to Fort Desoto Park for a beach cleanup and cookout on Thursday, July 5th, 2012.We have been working with some of these clubs over the past few years, and are working on summer camps for watersports.
The bus loads of kids met up at Shelter #5 to focus on the North Beach area, which is one of the heaviest used areas of the park. Fort Desoto Park staff have been extremely busy getting the park back in order after the recent tropical storm. In addition, the 4th of July holiday had every trash bin in the park overflowing, and the birds were eating well, but making a bigger mess than was already there!
