Chris Yorgalite going big.

Summer of Death 2000 @ Connection Park


SLUG Mag has been producing the Summer of Death skateboarding contest series for 16 years straight. We found a box of memories with 35mm photos from our first SOD contest at Connection Skate Park (RIP) in 2000. A young Oliver Buchanan, Mike Murdock, Mike Plumb, Jared Smith and Chris Yourgalite show us what Utah skateboarding is all about. Over the past 16 years we’ve watched the Utah skate scene grow as amateurs have become professionals and skate rats have become dads. We´re stoked to still be here, providing underground contests for the current generation.

Join us at our next Summer of Death skate contest, Sept. 12.
