On Sunday July 9th Underworld, Nike SB, C1rca, Fallen, Ipath and Solo Mobile threw a street competition called “Bringin It To The Streets”. The format for the skate contest was as follows, we preselected 4 different street spots and gave the skaters 20 minutes to skate each of them, all the spots were judged individualy and the sums of $400.00 were handed out before moving on to the next spot.
There wasn’t really any 1st, 2nd, or 3rd to this comp and almost everyone got money, so here are some of thehighlights.

The competition turned out to be a success, we only had a few run ins with security, spectators got to see some gnarly street skating first hand, most skaters left with some extra dough in their pocket, and everyone was stoked. A big thanks goes out to all off the sponsors and people who made this event possible, C1RCA, Nike SB, Ipath, Fallen, Solo Mobile, Underworld skateshop, Jarvis Nigelsky, Cyrus Thiedike, Brian Caissieand Alex Bastide.
