Andy Macdonald has been working on this project for several months and he has just announced his bid to launch a professional SkaterCross event. It’s another way to bring excitement to competitive skateboarding, which wouldn’t depend on the subjectivity of a judging panel. It’s head-to-head racing with bumps, jumps, and quick turns and the fastest times determine the winners.
Drop on by the SkaterCross Kickstarter page to learn more, share your interest, and contribute your donations to the cause.
Preparations for this Saturday’s Clash at Clairemont IX event are in full swing as this annual benefit event takes place at the Mission Valley YMCA. A host of top pros and ams will be in the mix along with demos and autograph sessions and musical entertainment with all proceeds going to support Grind For Life. If you cannot attend, be sure to tune into the live webcast which kicks of at noon! For more info visit the Clash at Clairemont website and social channels.
