The Grand Prix works closely with top skaters such as Kareem Campbell, Eric Koston, Bob Burnquist, Colin McKay, Chad Fernandez and Rick Howard to ensure that the quality of the street and vert setup satisfies the requirements of progressive skateboarding. Our goal is to offer the best setup for the best action to the skate community.
