P-Stone Cup 2023 Photos

Last weekend, we went back to Bobs for the fourth annual P-Stone Cup. It’s the best show in boarding for a certain type of skate fan and this year kept up the repuation. I got the official press pass to help cover the event, so let’s see what these credentials can do. —Tom Shattuck

Photos by Brook, Shattuck, Ballard and Gerwer

001 DSC1952 hsp gerwerI started by getting flicked up with my fellow staffers, ad man Eben Sterling and the great Joe Brook. Most of the photos you’re about to see were taken by Joe. Not this one though. Gerwer shot this one

002 DSC1965 peter royce brookThis one’s definitely shot by Joe. Look at that sincere look of stoke on Hewitt’s face. On the right is Royce Nelson, who at one time held the unofficial title of highest air in a natural backyard pool

003 PStoneCup AnaFelix ShattuckThe family Stone. This contest is held every year to honor the life of Anna’s husband, Felix’s father and our guy Preston Maigetter. Notably absent this time around was Felix’s older brother Oskar, who was busy slide tackling and killing it in the state soccer tournament. Go Pirates!
