Capitola Classic 2011?
Working on it, the dates we are planning are the first week before or after US National Championships, San Dimas, California USA, October 8-9, 2011. The weekend dates October 15 & 16 most likely it will be a one day event on Sunday the 16 th. The pavement is not great but so many people have asked about it and I've wanted to revive it for decades. Will keep you posted. Permit process first with Capitola. I am working on it with Marcus Rietema president and founder of the IGSA. He's got the no how I have the drive.

The Capitola Classic was a skateboarding event that received international attention and brought lots of excitement and energy to the Capitola village back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The Capitola Classic was well known in skating circles for its annual downhill race, which was a head-to-head speed competition that drew top names in the sport, many local as well as international, including Santa Cruz, California local John Hutson, who held the world speed record for skateboarding at 53.45 mph and dominated the event each year.
