Boost Mobile Presents: Eric Koston’s éS Game of SKATE
All winter long, you and your friends have been escaping the rain and snow for the sake of sanity. Perhaps it was a parking structure, perhaps it was the 120 square feet in your best friend’s garage. One thing is for sure…you’ve been perfecting your flat ground skills while sharing in the winning and losing of games of SKATE.
Now it’s your chance to put these skills to use in Eric Koston’s éS Game of SKATE, presented by Boost Mobile. éS and Boost Mobile are both on the cutting edge of technology and style, which will take the Game of SKATE to the next level.
This year, the contest will be held globally with 12 domestic and four international qualifiers. The winner of each of these individual contests will be flown to sunny San Diego courtesy of éS and Boost Mobile, where they will have a chance to compete in the Amateur World Championships during the ASR trade show in September. This could be you!
The winner of the Game of SKATE Amateur World Championships will go on to compete against pros from all over the world, including last years champ, P.J. Ladd, and even Eric Koston. You’ll only get that far, however, if you make it past other skaters like Paul Rodriguez, Bastien Salabanzi or the other 44 top pros who’ll be entering. If you think you’ve got what it takes to throw down, then get on a Greyhound or beg your best friend to drive you to one of the following 12 locations:
