Clash At Clairemont 7 Savors Success
A jam-packed venue of spectators attended the Sonic Generations of Skate contest at Clash at Clairemont 7 to watch select teams of vert skaters throw down their biggest tricks in a unique team contest in support of Grind for Life and The Mission Valley YMCA. Legendary Tony Hawk, Andy Macdonald and Mitchie Brusco, once again won the competition and donated their prize money to Grind for Life.
The event featured four contests: individual runs, high air, best trick and team triples, where each pro competed against their own generation for team points. Each of the four teams were comprised of three riders from different generations of vert skating. Every individual pushed the level of progression with technical lip tricks, varied aerials, and more.

“This seventh annual event highlighted an all-time brotherhood of skateboarding where all the pros came together for a great cause to help fundraise for travel and other expenses that insurance doesn’t cover for those going through cancer,” said Mike Rogers, founder, Grind for Life. “This year was the best turn-out ever. The Sonic Generations of Skate competition was a great addition to the Clash at Clairemont. The kids were stoked on the triples and the variety of runs put together by the different generations of pros.”
