This year Ghetto Games fest didn’t include skateboarding. The budget was cut at a last-minute, and we didn’t have the same action like years before. For instance last year we had tons of cool people visiting us: a huge Finnish delegation, Baltic homies, Belarusians and even some pros from Brazil (still trying to figure out what were they doing here). And this year the whole skate budget was redirected to something else, probably basketball or something like that. Anyway, homies didn’t want to cancel the annual trip to Ventspils, and a no budget contest was organised in the street BMX park on a rough asphalt. Big up to Tikari skateshop and Krishjanis Kalvnas for making it happen. Here is an awesome video recap.
The destiny of Ghetto Games is unknown, will it happen next year? Who knows. Maybe it is time for a change, maybe we need to make our own games? Ghetto Bird Games?
