With the year wrapping up for 2018, we ran some numbers on our own GFL Series and The Boardr Am Series participation. We also threw in a look at SPoT All Ages Contests and the Damn Am Series, both of which we used to work on six years ago before The Boardr started. And finally, we see how Cowtown's Phoenix Am and Zumiez Best Foot Forward Series has looked over the years.

Why is Skateboarding Contest Participation on the Decline?

Monday, June 13, 2016

Ever since I started working in the skateboarding industry, I've wondered if "real" skateboarding is growing or shrinking. The data out there isn't all that great, so all I've ever had to go on was my own when I formerly worked for Skatepark of Tampa prior to 2013. SPoT continues to do all the same things they've done, including their all ages contests. At The Boardr, we do similar ones on the Grind for Life Series, but they're spread all over Florida.

X Games Austin is a Wrap: Behind the Scenes On The Boardr

Sunday, June 8, 2014

I hope you caught all that on ESPN for the Street Finals for both men and women. It was a fun and ripping afternoon of skateboarding here in Austin, Texas. After Grant Taylor skipped town and gave up his spot in the cut to Alec Majerus who had just missed it yesterday, I was certain he was going to take it today. Then Nyjah came with new tricks and of course his usual bag of destruction. Get the full week's results here. Congrats Nyjah, Lacey, and Pedro for gold in Street and Park this year.

The Finals at Copenhagen Pro 2013

Sunday, August 4, 2013

The Finals at Copenhagen Pro are always some of the best skating you'll see all year. The mix of skaters that come to this contest is so diverse and unlike any other contest, which is why we started referring to it as the Tampa Pro of Europe years ago. I hope you where here, but if not, I've got a cell phone edit and photos for you.
