Ground Zero Clothing and Boardshop has a couple events coming up worth noting for all you board sport junkies out there. On Friday, Oct. 14, they’ll host a snowboard movie premiere at Ace of Spades (1417 R Street), where you can peep the new flick from Finger on Da Trigger and Marc Frank Montoya Productions, Familia 2, the trailer for which has some of the heaviest street riding I’ve ever seen. Also screening will be Shoot the Moon from Videograss. Riders from the films will be in attendance for meet and greets and signings, and there will be thousands of dollars’ worth of free swag given out to the crowd, not to mention a free lift ticket to Sierra-at-Tahoe with paid admission, which is only $14 in advance (at all Ground Zero locations) or $16 the day of or at the door. Tickets are also available through Doors open at 6 p.m., show starts at 7 p.m., all ages are welcome and there are three bars within the venue for the 21-and-over crowd. Then just two days later on Sunday, Oct. 16, Ground Zero will present their 14th annual Fallout Fest skateboard contest in the streets of downtown Davis. The Ground Zero-provided street course, which will be set up on 3rd Street between F and G streets (near their shop), will be the setting for this epic competition. There are two divisions (under 16 and 16-and-over), each with two categories (beginner and intermediate). Only 15 skaters per category, so if you’re thinking about entering, do so fast. The event is free to watch and there will be free gear given out to the crowd, so head on out to Davis from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and watch some local rippers compete for gear and a $900 cash purse! For more information about the contest or to learn how to enter, visit or call their Davis location at (530) 753-7775.
