TOP PROFESSIONAL SKATEBOARDERS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE COMPETE IN SAN DIEGO BOOST MOBILE PRESENTS éS GAME OF SKATE

WHAT: Skateboard professionals from around the globe compete in a tournament-style elimination éS Game of SKATE for a grand prize of $10,000.

The éS Game of SKATE, presented by Boost Mobile, is an international contest series traveling through numerous countries in Europe, Asia and North America. The top amateur SKATE champions win on an all-expenses-paid trip to San Diego to compete in the éS Game of SKATE Amateur National Championships, the winner of which becomes the Wild Card entry facing the pros at éS Game of SKATE Pro Finals during the Action Sports Retail Tradeshow in San Diego, California.

With all the hype on competitive skateboarding like ESPN’s X Games, the éS Game of SKATE brings skateboarding back to its roots: no obstacles for tricks, just the contestant, his board and pure flatground creativity. The concept was born from the popular basketball game of HORSE. The idea is the same, except skateboards are used instead of basketballs and masterful footwork instead of skillful shots.
