Week 3 Action – Shakin’ it Up!
Hey Contestants: Important Update!
We just decided to make things more interesting as we enter the last stretch.
Originally, Top 30 qualified to Round 2 and we presently have 32 contestants. So we’ll shake it up just a bit and tighten the Round 1 to Top 20 Qualifiers.
However, since we just made this decision today, we will extend the contest by 1 week. Round 1 will end on August 8th – midnight UTC.
Top 20 Highest Points Earners will move onto Round 2 – and every participating contestant is eligible to vote as a guest judge.
The $5,000+ Prize purse remains unchanged – and if anything, it can only go up.
We’re working with some new sponsors in this pilot Episode 1 of The Ultimate Skateboarder.
Let’s give some shout-outs to Powell & Peralta!!!
