Tum Yeto End Discrimination Against Skateboarders.

Help end Discrimination Against Skateboarders by supporting SB 1179 legislation. Send a letter to your california Senator! Go to and Fight For The Future Of Skateboarding In California!

Morrow Legislation Will Protect Cities,

SACRAMENTO - "The skaters have been speaking and I've been listening."

With those opening comments, Senator Bill Morrow (R-Carlsbad) announced his new legislation designed to provide more complete liability protection for local governments that build and operate public skateboard parks.

"This bill is for the skateboarders," said Morrow. "Senate Bill 1179 will protect local governments, encourage building of more public skateboard parks, and expand usage of existing parks. The bill will toss out the arbitrary age restrictions in current law, a restriction that excludes a huge percentage of young skateboarders from using public parks."

The North San Diego County Republican successfully authored legislation in 1996 and 2001 that increased liability protection for publicly owned and operated skateboard parks. Those laws contributed to a broad-based effort to encourage building safe, accessible public parks where skateboarders can congregate and ply their skills. But Morrow said that much more needs to be done.

The senator said, "The earlier bills were important steps. But, quite frankly, they are inadequate to keep up with the growing demand, evolving demographics and other dynamic realities of the skateboarding community. This new measure speaks directly to those problems."

Existing law provides liability protection to public agencies and public employees when recreational enthusiasts participate in certain popular activities designated as "hazardous recreational activities." The list of designated activities is contained in Section 831.7 of the California Government Code.

SB 1179 would add skateboarding to that list of activities, granting skateboarding what is termed as "straight HRA status." The bill would treat skateboarding in public skateparks with the same liability protections already afforded much riskier activities.

"We provide full HRA protection to activities such as skydiving, hang gliding, motor vehicle racing, off-road motorcycling and body contact sports," said Morrow. "It's ridiculous and discriminatory to treat skateboarding as if it is more dangerous than jumping out of an airplane at 10,000 feet."

The senator concluded, "It's time we stopped discriminating against skateboarders, marginalizing participants in what has become a dominant cultural activity. The State of California has an interest in encouraging, not discouraging, participation in a creative physical activity at well planned, responsibly designed skateboard parks."

Toy Machine Pipeline demo report!

Dear Tum Yeto,

Give my regards to Ed Templeton, for his Toy Machine Team proved to be a class act. Besides their professionalism, they’re down to earth good people, and talented skaters. The demo was a great success. Next year with a little more advertising and lead time, I’d expect the event to be double in size. I’d also personally like to thank Johnny, Austin, Matt, Josh, and Kevin for their interaction with the fans for there’s no doubt a lot of kids were truly touched by their good nature and sincerity. And to you too Amy – It’s nice to have the backing from your side. The product arrived timely, just as you said it would, and it made everything run glass smooth. I’ll personally thank Bosco next time I see him.

Look forward to doing business with Tum Yeto. Our business has made leaps and bounds in the last ninety days and with your support there’s no limit.

And Team Toy . . . thank you so much for the time you spent with my son, Taylor. Though it was just another roll on the boards for the team, it was a heart felt moment from a father. If ever you visit Houston, Texas again, the door to Pipeline’s always open.

Todd Jett

Foundation The Sixth Avenue Gareth Stehr

All in all a great weekend was spent in Nashville Tennessee. tons of kids turned up for the 6th ave skate park 3 year anniversary and skate contest. all divisions were choc full of competitors and kind of dragged on a little but that's a good thing, right. there were some absolute rippers out there which was great to see, some of the future hopefuls. the best trick was great and for some strange reason I decided to organize benihana contest beforehand which was a bit of a laugh. Corey and i skated for a bit with some of the locals at which point someone stole one of my shoes, but whatever I'm not too bummed, because it was a great weekend spent with friends and fans alike. the kids were awesome and time spent outside the park was always a good time, a little drinking and some shuffleboard is always a nice ender to a good day in Nashville. oh and to arrive home with a sweet black eye from a new found friend doesn't hurt either, maybe just a little.
