We happy to announce that we have been selected as the ONLY park in Indiana to be part of the Boarder Wars Skateboard Contest Series. The Series will operate 8 stops over 7 states with The Fort Wayne Indoor just one month away from the Finals on June 23rd in Chicago at Grant Park. We have summary of the the event below, but you may want to visit the boarderwars.com website to get a full list of all the stops along with much more information. The series is Sponsored by Finatik Apparel
The contest itself contains 3 rounds.
Round 1 – The contest starts by narrowing the riders into a 3 to 4 rider three-minute jam session. The judges will then select the top 15 riders with the best scores from out of all of the jam sessions to move onto round 2.
Round 2 – The top 15 riders with the highest scores will get their own timed free run of the park. The judges will score each rider a 1 to 10 score. After each rider has gotten their chance we move onto to round 3.
Round 3 – On a designated section of the course each rider will get three chances to land their best trick. The judges will score each try a 1 to 10. After each rider has had three chances the judges will take the highest score from round three and combined it with round two to get the results. Even if a rider doesn’t finish in the top three they are awarded a ticket to compete in our finals at Grant Park in downtown Chicago IL to win the grand prize.
