DV8 and Snowjam were skate/snowboard/BMX events at Olympic Plaza and in front of City Hall from 2001-2003. There were great bands there too, like Sloan, Social Distortion, and Rahzel, just to name a few.

For the second time in about a month, an iconic Calgary skater has passed away. Barry Hiebert was a true skateboarding pioneer. He and his brother John had a vert ramp at their house in Southwood in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Read more about it here.
We’ll post memorial information when it becomes available. In the meantime, please click Barry’s photo below to support a crowdfunding campaign which will ease the burden for Barry’s family.
