SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 @CHUCK BAILEY YOUTH PARK
Just one of the many amazing Olio Festival skate events, on Saturday, Sept. 22, Color, Coastal Riders and CONS are hopping on the train down to the Chuck Bailey Youth Park to host a contest where consistency = cash.
In this new take on an old skateboard match tradition, skaters must figure out a way to milk their bag of tricks for all it's worth! No more of that "huck and hope" style of trickery here... you're gonna need to land your tricks in order to win some of that cash and product ($1000 value). So stick with what you know and you might get paid!
- 3 Best Tricks on 3 obstacles (a little something for the tranny lovers)
- The Ledge Contest: open skate + "Make A Train"
- BEST OVERALL
(Most consistent / Most tricks landed all day)
Strategy is the key! Judges will be watching all day and counting every trick you land, awarding points for consistency and difficulty. Variety is not necessarily the spice of life and bailing on a trick you have no business trying will cost you. Also, sliding or grinding the whole ledge might just bump you ahead of that dude who only hit the last half! Stick with what you know—judges will be counting the number tricks landed against your failed attempts.
"MAKE A TRAIN" Contest
(1st, 2nd, 3rd place awarded)
For 15 mins straight, all participants will attack the ledge, one after another. You fall, you’re out! The last 3 standing will be judged on the consistency and difficulty of the tricks they put down in this time. Unlike a Best Trick contest however, judges will count all landed tricks equally (based on difficulty of course), so your strategy is important!
Sure, you can do 20 straight 50-50s if you want, and make the Top 3, but that’s not gonna guarantee you First Place. If some dude comes correct with 5 perfect nollie nosegrinds, he might just take you out! Figure out your one, solid trick you can do every time, and milk it! Take a risk though and you might just be rewarded!
Register to skate with a $5 cash donation or canned-good equivalent to the City of Surrey Food Bank then enjoy the music, the BBQ and FREE ice cream and water provided by Happy Water.
