Today we are starting off with a video from our new contest, ‘’SKATEpark’’. We invited 16 skateboarders to the Real-X Skatepark in Apeldoorn, Netherlands to play a variant on the classic Game of S.K.A.T.E. Just as with the classic Game of S.K.A.T.E. two riders compete with each other until one of them loses by getting S.K.A.T.E., the only difference is that you can now skate the whole skatepark instead of only flat ground. The only rule we added is, that you can not skate the same obstacle two times in a row, besides that everything is acceptable. At the end only one guy will survive and he will take home € 500,00 in cash.
Riders in this game:
Just as with the classic ‘Game of S.K.A.T.E.’ the skateboarders are randomly put against each other by pulling their names out of a big hat. When two riders are up for battle they ‘Roshambo’ on who will start off first. The first rider does a trick and the other one has to copy it. If the one who has to do the first trick doesn’t land it, then it is the other rider’s turn. If a rider doesn’t succeed in copying the trick he will get a letter. This will go on until one of the riders has S.K.A.T.E. and thus loses the battle. The only rule we apply is that you can not skate an obstacle two times in a row, besides that everything is fine.
