Friday Wrap-up - Paris, Coffee & The Oscars - All Skate Related.

Friday, February 22, 2019

Paris has said they'd like to include skateboarding in the 2024 Olympic Games.  Now it's up to the International Olympic Committee to decide if they get it.  Paris also wants to include: surfing and sport climbing (which will make an appearance in Tokyo as well) and wait for it ... Breakdancing!  The IOC will consider the proposal and must decide by December 2020. So I guess they plan on seeing how skateboarding does in Tokyo at the 2020 Olympics first - which may be a smart idea. 

This Sunday is the Oscars and MINDING THE GAP is up for Best Documentary. It's been receiving a lot of press lately so you may want to tune in to see if it wins - crossing our fingers!  If you haven't seen this coming of age film, it's a must! Check it out on HULU now.

So... Stumptown Coffee now has a pro skate team and Elissa Steamer is a team rider. They have released this short video trailer for "Breaking the Crust" -  the full-length video will be out next month.  Stumptown has also released a limited cold brew and whole bean coffee, and $1.00 from each bag and can sold, will go back to 3 non-profits - 2 of them being female based; Exposure Skate and Skate Like a Girl. You can also buy a limited edition Stumptown Team Box Set for $29.00
