Roughside VI


Part of SLUG’s 16th Annual Summer of Death skate series, the sixth annual Roughside Presented By Monster took place on Saturday, Sept. 12. Roughside is a traveling contest that has mainly centered in the Downtown Salt Lake area in the past. This time around, the West Valley/Taylorsville area got some love from 30-plus skaters eager to win some prizes and huck some tricks. Congratulations to First Place winner Jose Suitt. Go to for the full recap and a photo gallery by Niels Jensen, Sam Milianta and Weston Colton.
