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.

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.
The Tony Hawk Foundation needs your help to “Make Concrete Change!” throughout June; THF is partnering with CrowdRise to celebrate International Go Skateboarding Day all month long by raising funds for communities building free, public skateparks. 100% of money raised though this campaign will directly fund skatepark projects across the U.S.
By helping out, you have a chance to win Tony’s signed skateboard deck, or two VIP Tickets to their exclusive Stand Up For Skateparks benefit taking place on October 11, 2015.
Starting is easy, just go to www.crowdrise.com/MakeConcreteChange and click the “Fundraise for this Campaign” button to get started. It should take 30 seconds.
Once you’ve established your fundraiser, make sure to update it with the story of why you support THF. The more personal and compelling your story, the more likely you are to get donations.
And please help us spread the word. E-mailing your co-workers, family, and friends directly about your fundraiser and the Make Concrete Change campaign will work 10 times as well as posting it on social media. Sharing it on social media can help raise awareness, but don’t rely on it to drive donations.
If you don’t have 30 seconds to spare, or for some reason can’t set up a fundraiser, please go to www.crowdrise.com/MakeConcreteChange and donate.
Help the Tony Hawk Foundation to reach its goal of $50,000 for skatepark projects across the U.S. 100% of funds received will help construct skateparks in communities that need them most.
If you have questions or need help, please don’t hesitate to reach out to Carly Whitton: firstname.lastname@example.org; or call 760-477-2479.
To celebrate being selected as one of the official signature songs for 2015’s X Games, Joywave have unveiled a visual homage to classic games like Tony Hawk Pro Skater and Skate 3.
