Collegiate Skate Tour in New York

The Collegiate Skate Tour, (which encourages education for skateboarders everywhere), is back at it for the 2016-17 school year and kicked off their tour in NYC last weekend. They’ve been doing their thing out in Queens, with BeliefNYC, since the fall of 2013, and were excited for their 4th Annual contest this year! Between the local homies killing it, the college skaters that traveled from out of state and the college students from the five boroughs, the crowd was there and stoked for the contest.

Students came from Oakland University (near Detroit), UMass Amherst (Western Massachusetts), and all over greater New York City and Long Island for the event.
