Press Release

A 195-foot-long flat deck barge holding a custom designed skate park and crew of world-class Red Bull skateboarders left one month ago from a port in Minneapolis, MN on an action-packed journey down the mighty Mississippi. With their sights set on New Orleans, LA, the crew wrapped an epic, 1,705 mile, 28 day adventure known as Red Bull Mississippi Grind with a final celebration and a donation of the ramps to the City of New Orleans to kick start the citys first public skate park.

New Orleans marks the grand finale on Red Bull Mississippi Grinds four-stop course that also saw stops in Minneapolis, Davenport, Iowa, and St Louis, Missouri. The weekend-long finale event was packed with local competitions and demos from Red Bull skaters Zered Bassett and Ron Deily. Overlooking Woldenberg Park, eight skaters got a chance to ride the barge and compete. Scott Laird of the Saint Louis, Missouri stop walked away with a $2,000 cash prize and the honor of the being the TICKET TO GRIND CHAMPION. When asked about the competition, Laird stated I didnt even know what to think about the event since there were so many good kids coming up I knew today was going to be tough. The competition was intense but I surprised myself big time Im really hyped on the win.

While the celebration lasted just a couple days, the real impact of the project is to keep wheels in motion for the long run in New Orleans. All the ramps and park design, created by Spohn Ranch, have been officially handed over to the City of New Orleans, accepted by Roy Glapion, Chair of the New Orleans Recreation Development Commission on Friday evening. He stated, There is a need, folks are skating, the sky is the limit and we definitely appreciate it.
