Lake Forest, California (October 23, 2009) - More than 12,000 skaters competed in over 100 cities in more than 25 countries around the world in the éS game of SKATE Global Tour. Each éS Game of SKATE Global Tour stop crowned their local winners and the winners of each location have been given an all-expenses-paid trip to Orange County, California to compete in the éS Game of SKATE Amateur World Championships on Saturday, November 14, 2009. The éS Game of SKATE Amateur World Championships is open to the public and admission is free.
This year at the éS Game of SKATE Amateur World Championships, éS is going to film the first-ever complete online flat-ground “Tricktionary” to give all skateboarders a chance to try and stomp their best variation of a skateboard trick. In the following weeks, éS will pick the cleanest variations of each trick and put the how-to videos in the first-ever flat-ground “Tricktionary” on the éS Game of SKATE website. The “Tricktionary” will give skateboarders the chance to see the correct footwork fundamentals of what goes into over 200 different variations of flatground tricks.

The éS Game of SKATE crew was told we couldn't hold the Game of SKATE at the L.E.S. Skatepark today (Tuesday) so we've got a new spot at 12th & A. The Game will be held Thursday, July 30, at 2pm. The spot is right next to Public School #60 on 12th Street between Avenue A and 1st Avenue. Please do not go to the spot before 1pm as there are other activities before that time.
We will do signups again, which will go much faster this time since there will not be free stuff to give away. If it looks like rain, we will hold out and hold on for it to dry up. It's New York in the summer, it will get dry. If for some reason we are unable to hold the Game of SKATE at all on Thursday, please check the schedule for other games nearby, and stay tuned for the Game of SKATE makeup time later in the summer.
Thanks for understanding our need to change the spot and time... it was out of our control.
See you there,
