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,
The dates are set for the éS Game of SKATE 2009 tour and it’s time to tune up those flatground skills. The global tour kicks off on May 30, 2009 at Cowtown Skateboards in Phoenix, AZ. Twenty-seven U.S. locations, a plethora of global stops and thousands of crazy trick combos will all culminate at the éS Game of SKATE Finals this Fall. The latest updates, regional qualifiers, global tour, contest rules and information are all on the official éS Game of SKATE site.
éS Footwear and the éS Game of SKATE are calling you out. We know who you are. You're the kid who is always filming or shooting photos of his friends at the local spot. You're the kid who always keeps the local scene on everyone's radar by blogging about it. You want a break in life and the chance to go on the road trip of a lifetime with a van full of like-minded skateboarders and maybe, just maybe, getting your foot in the door at a dream job in California. We know you're out there. And we want you to enlist!
It's the éS Game of SKATE Internship of a Lifetime contest! We're going to find three (3) of the best-qualified candidates to come along on the Official 2009 éS Game of SKATE tour and join us in making some skateboarding history. We need three skaters who fall into one of the following categories:
- An up-and-coming skateboard filmer with a camera and the best eye for composition since French Fred and the editing touch of Jon Miner and Mike Manzoori.
- An aspiring skateboard photographer who dreams of shooting a TransWorld cover.
- A writer/blogger who can weave words into paragraphs that leave us wishing we were reading a novel, not just the latest tour story of life on the road.
Sound good to you? Then come on tour with éS »
