The Slam OC Rolls Through Costa Mesa – The Aftermath

The Volcom Skate Park in Costa Mesa was the place to be on Sunday, June 27. Costa Mesa real estate company Torelli Realty was proud to participate in an event that literally had  ‘Orange County’ written all over it. The event received some excellent publicity in OC Weekly.

For thoese of you who don’t know, Volcom Skate Park is a huge attraction for skaters all over the OC. It is located at the corner or Arlington and Junipero in the Costa Mesa neighborhood of Mesa del Mar right by the Orange County Fair.

Seth Elson was  the Chairman for The Slam OC and the purpose was to combine skateboarding, music, and environmental stewardship into one event. All day long riders took to the skate park and showed off their skills. Musicians rocked the main stage. The event encouraged recycling and had booths that promoted being green, like Ecofficiency. Torelli Realty also made a video with people giving their tips to help the environment.

The day rocked – literally, due to the music of bands like The Crowd, Channel 3, Disguster, New Skool Kings, Cat Party, Call to Glory, Joe’s Garage, SPLNTR, SLOKA, Craic Haus, and The Hindu Pirates.

Over 2000 people attended the event at Volcom Skate Park and there were over 150 contestants. The big winner of the day was Mike Owen and you can view some video if him here.  You can also see some video of signature skate tricks by Jim Gray here. Congrats to MESA for winning the Battle of the Zones contest for The OC Skateboarding League. Thank you to the Estancia High School Cheer Squad and the Costa Mesa High School Cheer Sqaud for adding some pep to the battle. We’d also like to thank The Attic Skate Shop and Frog House for helping us to provide some cool raffle prizes – you guys rule!

Events like this are part of what make Costa Mesa such a great destination and add to Costa Mesa life. The all ages event was free and provided a day of fun for skaters, families, and the community. As a real estate company, we are proud to support the community and this event was a hit. We’re happy to have been able to team up with Complexions Day Spa to provide free 5-minute massages to help take the stress out of real estate!

Mike got together with members from various neighborhood associations throughout Costa Mesa and the committee planned a fun day for the entire community.

There’s nothing better than an afternoon in the park – make sure to come out next year. The community picnic will move to another neighborhood next year… We’ll make sure to keep you posted when the next location is announced.

Costa Mesa Parks – Canyon Park Cleanup

Costa Mesa is home to a variety of neighborhood parks, which offer residents a place to enjoy nature and recreational activities. On the Westside, one of Costa Mesa’s neighborhoods, the community can enjoy Canyon Park, which is located at 970 Arbor Street, near the intersection of 19th Street and Whittier Avenue.  On June 19, 2010, there is a very special event happening at Canyon Park – The Battle of the Brush.

The Battle of the Brush is the first ever annual junior high school football community service event. In an effort to clean up the park and showcase the community, the teams will be sprucing up the park. The civic minded students and coaches (Costa Mesa High School Mustang Coach Jeremy Osso and Estancia Eagles Coach Mike Bargas) will take to the “playing field” and give the park a mini makeover by raking, trimming trees, pulling weeds, and more. Thanks so much to the City of Costa Mesa for loaning the teams tools and providing trash pickup.

The event is the culmination of a dream long held by the High School Booster Presidents Frank Albers (Costa Mesa High School) and Steve Mensinger (Estancia High School). Since Costa Mesa supports these teams, the teams are thrilled to give back.

This isn’t the first time that Canyon Park has been cleaned up by the community. Back in 1994 the park had a cleanup day as well where members of the community removed litter, cleaned up weeds, and added new plants. Then in 1997 there was an Earth Day Cleanup as well. We admire the giving spirit of the football teams – thanks for giving back to Costa Mesa and keeping it a beautiful place to live… You make our Realtors proud!

Did You Know about Costa Mesa’s Veterans’ Memorial Project?

Costa Mesa’s Harbor Lawn Memorial Park, which is in Mesa Verde at Harbor & Gisler, has been creating a Veterans’ Memorial.  The project began in 2007 and its mission is to honor American veterans from all branches of the military.  This monument is a way for Costa Mesa to show appreciation for those who have done so much for our country and to protect our freedom and happiness.

The beautiful memorial features two canons, a flagpole, bronze statues, bronze plaques and a brick walkway. Each brick in the walkway can be engraved with a personal message that members of the community are welcome to purchase to show their support.  Costa Mesa has a strong sense of community and history and a project like this really showcases those traits.
