IASC brings together skateboarding industry leaders for the 5th Annual IASC Skateboarding Summit, May 10th and 11th, 2012 at the Doubletree Hotel in Anaheim, California.
Along with two days of speakers, panels, roundtables and networking opportunities—all aimed at giving you the information and tools you need to improve your business, we are excited to announce two special events that will make your time at the Summit an event to remember.
The evening of May 11th we are proud to present a special screening of the new Bones Brigade Documentary at the AMC 30 movie theaters next door to the hotel courtesy of Powell-Peralta and Vans. All Summit attendees are guaranteed seating at the screening.
Plan to stick around after the Summit and catch the Pro-Tec Pool Party Contest at the Vans Skatepark right next door to the hotel on Saturday, May 12th. Summit attendees will have the opportunity to reserve VIP seating at the always sold-out event.
We’ve got a special couple of days of skateboarding education, connection and inspiration lined up for you that will be worth more than just time and money. Check the agenda for the full lineup and we’ll see you in May!
The evening of May 10th, 2012 please join us for the Skateboarding Hall of Fame and Icon Awards at the Doubletree Hotel Anaheim as we honor the skateboarders, industry pioneers and icons that have left an indelible imprint on the history of skateboarding and our culture. Enjoy the ceremony, dinner, live auction and more with all proceeds going to benefit the Skateboarding Hall of Fame and the Go Skateboarding Foundation’s Just One Board initiative. VIP Meet and Greet and dinner starts at 6:00 pm, general admission opens at 7:30 pm. Contact Di Dootson Rose (949) 455-1112 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.

• Danny Bearer was an original member of the Hobie team and became the first International Skateboard Champion when he won the inaugural competition in Anaheim in 1965. • As an original Z-Boy, Jay Adams is considered one of the most influential skateboarders of all time. Stacy Peralta has called Jay, “the world’s greatest natural skater.” • Pioneering street skating in the late 80’s and early 90’s, Mark Gonzales cemented the foundation of what we know today as modern skateboarding. • Honing her ability in the famous L.A. schoolyards of the 70’s, Peggy Oki earned her spot as the only female Z-Boy on the hugely influential Zephyr Team. • John Humphrey became the first licensee of a skateboard patent after going into business with Albert C. Boyden to produce the Humco Surfer in 1963. • With the introduction of the polyurethane wheel to skateboarding through Cadillac Wheels in 1972, Frank Nasworthy paved the way for the second great boom of skateboarding in the 1970’s. • One of the most important photographers of his generation, Glen E. Friedman was first published in SkateBoarder magazine in 1976 at the age of 14. • Black Flag gave voice to an anti-authoritarian, non-conformist message that deeply resonated with and inspired skateboarders in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.
