King of S.K.A.T.E. Contest

Lately there have been a lot of S.K.A.T.E. related contests going down. This King of S.K.A.T.E. is different in that you don’t actually obtain any letters at all. In fact, King of S.K.A.T.E. is a foreign contest in Europe which is executed online through their website. So anyone here in the United States could enter if they chose too.

It’s pretty insane because the dudes over at Besttrick.com have come up with an out of this world idea. Basically, it’s a contest that doesn’t end until one last skateboarder is left standing.

The way it works is that a trick is posted up that you have to do. For instance a 360 flip is the first trick, so everyone competing uploads their 360 flip trick that they just filmed and from there, they basically make it into round 2. Now it sounds easy but when you start watching what tricks are required, things can get a little mind boggling. I honestly don’t know how the heck some of these dudes pull of what they do.

The grand prize to the winner is 2,500 euros which translates to $3,196.93. Hot damn that’s a decent amount of cash. So if you think you got the skills to compete with your crazy European skate brothers, then by all means give it a shot and enter the contest. It’s free to enter and at least if you make it midway you could say you lost on a 720 gazelle flip or something.
