QUIKSILVER SKATERS TEAM UP WITH SHREDORDIE.COM FOR RACE TO S.K.AT.E CONTEST
Video Upload Contest Features Fresh Looks at Newly Remastered Tracks from Beastie Boys Album "Paul's Boutique"
Putting a spin on the traditional game of "skate" (skateboarding's "horse"), Quiksilver and ShredOrDie.com are launching a user-upload video contest called "Race to S.K.A.T.E." In this version, the object of the game is to get all letters in S.K.A.T.E first as opposed to last. Throughout the month of March, Quiksilver will upload a new video every Friday with a different Quiksilver pro doing five tricks. The contestants must then film themselves doing these same five tricks, earning them one letter per trick, spelling S.K.A.T.E with five successful tricks.
Quiksilver teamriders featuring their tricks are Tony Hawk, Alex Olson, Danny Garcia, Reese Forbes and Kyle Leeper. Each pro's skate video will feature a different track from the newly remastered 20th Anniversary Edition Beastie Boys album "Paul's Boutique", now available in stores and at beastieboys.com.
To view Tony Hawk's kick-off video for the Race to S.K.A.T.E contest, go to shredordie.com/promos/racetoskate. New videos will be uploaded every Friday at 4:00 P.M. (Pacific Time).
