It's safe to say that NASS 2017 was our best festival yet and in and amongst all of the madness that took place, there were a few real stand out moments... Did you witness any of these?
Vert Skate Finalists splitting prize purse
Theres nothing better than seeing skaters put friends before money. The top 10 finalists from our skate vert final decided to split the prize purse up between all of them before their final runs so they all got an equal slice! Now that's friendship.
Eroc The Dog
We love dogs, we love skateboarding. Combined it's a sure winner. Eroc is fast becoming one of the most famous skateboarding dogs in the UK and we were stoked when he rocked up un announced and demaneded to skate our NASS Park. How many dogs can you say had a session at their local park in London with Tony Hawk followed by a private session at NASS in the same day? See more from Eroc at NASS HERE
Becky Hill Suprises The Hangar audience and Sings 'After Glow'
We're a fan of Becky Hill here at NASS HQ, so it's no suprise that we were fully stoked when she rocked up during Crissy Criss's Hangar takeover! The crowd loved it!
Sky and Ocean come to NASS
We were blessed by the presence of Sky & Ocean Brown at NASS 2017 who flew all the way over from Japan to experience NASS for the first time. Not only did she celebrate her 9th birthday at the festival, but she also came second in the Women's Open comp, competed in the Men's pro vert comp and even had the entire Welcome Skateboards team wish her a Happy Birthday! This girl rips!
Mat Hoffman chilling at NASS
Nope, you were not seeing things, Mat Hoffman was chilling on site this year, judging our BMX comps and could often be seen walking around and taking the festival in. We were lucky enough to sit down with him to discuss Vert BMX .. I mean it's not like he's a big deal or anything...
The Ring Of Fire
TROF is a firm favourite here at NASS HQ and 2017 did not dissapoint. We were lucky enough to have skaters such as Manny Lopez, Daryl Dominguez as well as the Welcome team all giving it a go... No one was harmed in the making of this video!
Suprise KANO performance
Hey guys.. We did try to warm you about getting to the Hangar stage in good time on Saturday night... Kano popped up during the Tonga Balloon Party to help the guys out with a verse or too... What can I say... If you were there then you know.
