ZOO YORK DOES DALLAS… ERR, HOUSTON

This past weekend the Zoo Crew rolled down to Houston, TX, to skate in the 11th Annual Texas Skate Jam, play some ping pong, and host an autograph signing at Kingpinz Skateshop. Led by Zoo’s TM mastermind, Seamus Deegan, ZY Officials Kevin Taylor, Forrest Kirby, Brandon Westgate, Lamare Hemmings, Ron Deily, and Chazz Ortiz were along for the ride, with all the Deep South madness documented by ZY videographer, RB Umali, and ZY photographer, Sean Cronan.

The Zoo Crew was proud to be a part of this year’s Texas Skate Jam as all proceeds from the event were once again donated to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Over $100,000 was raised for Make-A-Wish, making it the most successful event ever. And Zoo proudly kicked down its fair share by contributing $10,000 to the cause. Not only was a boat load of cash raised for a noble organization, but the hordes of spectators at Southside Skatepark were also treated to some heated sessions in the bowl, bank to wall, and big four by pretty much all the heavyweights in skateboarding. Stay tuned for a full video wrap-up coming soon to the ZY Video Report Blog.

The day after the Texas Skate Jam, the Zoo Crew set up shop at Kingpinz for an autograph signing. The turnout was killer, and everyone in attendance left with inked ZY paraphernalia care of the Zoo Crew. Big thanks to Kingpinz and the 100+ Texans who showed up to hang with the Zoo. See y’all next year!
