Wavechaser and I have been talking about skating lately(due to the lack of snow) and I found this on ncdsa.Very cool concept: On November 2, 2002 *, Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY was the venue for the first ever Red Bull Urban Waves contest, where pro and amateur skateboarders competed for the fastest time on a „banked slalom course that is 1200 feet long.

Each of the 12 banks are 21 feet long, 6 feet tall with a center point bowl angle of approximately 60 degrees, and almost 2 feet of vertical at the very top. The course will be comprised of 12 banks which will be placed intermittently along the street course, similar to a slalom ski course.

and I believe this was a benefit race for Jay Adams last night at SkateLab in Simi Valley, Cali.....................................................Brad Edwards- Deathrace #1, Skatelab, Max Dolberg Photo. :biggthump

It may not be pure slalom, but it is Skateboard racing- with a core image and an excitment factor- This is marketable. Indoors. Fast. Exciting. and will cross over into racing skateboards down streets around cones.

McCree and I had big plans for this year that have been put on hold for now. I have had some interesting conversations with other action sports event planners and organizors who see the value in UNIQUE SKATEBOARD RACING events that are being planned by BLR and SRA.
