This past Saturday was TransWorld's very first time hosting a college skateboarding contest with Collegiate Skate Tour. As part of the Connect & Compete event with Work in Skateboarding, the Collegiate Skate Tour contest was a great time for student skateboarders from all over Southern California to meet up, skate the TWS park together, and compete for prizes (and possible bragging rights). Skaters flocked to Carlsbad from as far south as San Diego and even from north of Santa Barbara. With burgers and dogs grilling, music playing, and energy high in the park, it all ended with a well-deserved podium:

1. Zack "Ducky" Kovacs – CSU San Marcos (San Marcos, CA)
2. Robby Hargreaves – Allan Hancock College (Santa Maria, CA)
3. Tim Misagal – El Camino College (Torrance, CA)

“I’m happy and feel the Work in Skateboarding panel was a success, got lots of great feedback from the attendees all saying they got so much out of it. All the panelists killed it in giving their insights and advice about topics to do with starting a career in the skateboard industry. The focus groups afterwards gave the attendees a chance to give their opinions about a problem that each panelist faces in their job today as well as ask any questions they wanted.”—Work in Skateboarding founder Samantha Chami
