News is spreading that Wesley Tucker has died. Wesley was a long term ISSA website administrator and former ISSA Board of Directors member. Wesley wasn't one of the top racers, nor was he internationally well known, but he loved slalom skateboarding and helped get many new riders into the sport. As a administrator he was constantly looking after the SlalomSkateboarder.com web site, always easily reachable, helping new members in and fending off the spammers and making sure topics were organized, images posted, avatars added and kept the site running smoothly contributing to the successful development of the International Slalom Skateboarding Association over the last decade.

There is going to be a memorial service for Wesley at the First Baptist Church of Charleston South Carolina 48 Meeting Street Charleston, S.C. - The memorial service will be held at 11:00 am this Friday (Aug 2nd) and it's open to all of Wesley's family and friends.

You are welcome to post and share your memories of Wesley here:

Results US Nationals 2013

[July 16th, 2013 by Jani Soderhall]

Sk8Kings US Nationals at Oceanside went down July 13 and 14, 2013. Great skaters congregated at Loretta Street from as far away as Washington, Utah, Colorado, St. Louis, Texas, and Florida. Loretta Street is known for its steep pitch and slippery surface. It takes a master to conquer the 25 mph tight and 30+ mph GS. The dual hybrid is one of the funnest around, dodging quickly around cracks and potholes. The tight slalom ran single lane in one course that was a true pro style. It was on par with the 2008 Worlds in Gothenburg. 3 of the best 11 slalom racers double dq'd. Those with looser stomachs could choose to run the easier course, and most did. Juniors could choose to run a half course for the experience. Sunday was a classic Loretta Street GS. Big wheels were in. Although we did our best to set a true GS, the race was won on a downhill board, by a rider who has mastered the pump-tuck. See results below.

At the end of the weekend, the overall winners were announced. These racers qualified by completing all three events (Juniors and Women had two events-tight and GS). Your 2013 Sk8Kings US National Champions are:
