Sample Event: Vans Park Series

This ground breaking and game changing event series for park terrain skateboarding started in 2016. Vans knew to get it right, they needed to partner up with the team at The Boardr to create a top tier event that the industry and skateboarding professionals would support and attend. But work on VPS started long before that. In 2015, we sat down with Vans and hashed out everything from the fine details of seasonal rankings and points, to the long term picture and path to Tokyo for the Olympic Games. At each stop, The Boardr is contracted by Vans to provide full turnkey operational support, including live and instant scoring services via The Boardr Live™.

Sample Event: Ryan Sheckler's Red Bull Hart Lines Detroit

When Ryan Sheckler and Red Bull get an idea for one of the biggest new events in skateboarding, they know who to get to work with from the start. Nearly two years in advance, when it was just an idea over lunch, Red Bull and Ryan had already brought in The Boardr to consult, plan, and review everything from potential site visits to developing new and innovative scoring systems that changed the same old rules of skateboarding contests forever. Hart Lines was born out of all this work with a new format factoring in an element of speed. The Boardr has proudly produced three years this leading Red Bull Signature Series event.
