The Dogtown skate team was known for having the world’s most stylish and innovative skaters in the late 1970s. In extreme sports circles, Dogtown skaters like Tony Alva, Jay Adams and “Polar Bear” Agnew are revered to this day. Similarly, stylish and innovative are what The House of Marley strives to achieve today when designing our in-ear headphones, on-ear headphones and over-ear headphones. That’s why we are proud sponsors of the upcoming Polar Bear Pool Jam at one of America’s best skate parks, the Dennis “Polar Bear” Agnew Memorial Skate Park in Venice, California.
Located in Venice and considered one of the country’s best skate parks, it was dedicated to Agnew when it opened in 2009. Mostly known for his innovative style on concrete, Agnew’s skating influenced ramp builders of the modern era to create a park that replicated both the backyard pools of his youth and the waves of the ocean. In addition to having one of the best skate parks dedicated to him, the third annual Polar Bear Pool Jam is a yearly competition that was set up to honor Dennis Agnew after his untimely passing in 2005.
On June 24, Marley headphones will be out in full force at Venice’s best skate park for the Polar Bear Pool Jam. With our in-ear headphones and on-ear headphones in tow, we will be having some fun in the sun remembering a great skater.
Bonus: Check out this footage of legendary pro skater Christian Hosoi ripping up the bowl at the Venice “Dennis Polar Bear” Agnew Memorial Skatepark. Maybe slap on a pair of Marley headphones, watch the clip and imagine your own line in the concrete pool. Any amateur skateboarder that can skate pools is invited to register for the event. This is your chance to hit one of the country’s best skate parks in honor of a true legend.
