Chester Skate Competition

When: Sat., Aug. 20 2011

Some people don't really consider skateboarding a sport. But let's be serious, lipsliding a ten-stair handrail is probably as hard as pulling off any touchdown. Just ask the amateur skaters at the Commons Skatepark heading to Chester for the second annual Chester Skate Comp this August. Organized by skaters for skaters, Chad Haughn, Recreations and Parks Director of Chester, says that judges will be made up of local skaters chosen by Jesse Watson from Homegrown Skateboards, who will be sponsoring the event with Pro Skates and Subway. The event offers various skateboard prizes and gift certificates for the winners of the competition and promises itself to be the best opportunity to watch local riders go for broke. And if you've never seen the Pro Skates crew, those guys skate pretty hard. –Matthew Ritchie
