2023 Game of S.K.A.T.E. at Southfields Skatepark.
3rd Sunday of each month at(weather permitting), starting January 22nd.
Everyone encouraged to enter no matter skill level - this is about having a good time and getting our skate community together. Each game will have a small prize (T-Shirt, set of wheels, griptape etc). There will be a points scheme so you can accumulate points and at the end of the year the highest point scorer will be named Skater Of The Year (SOTY).
SOTY will get a special price and trophy!
The points will work like so:
Winner = 10 points
2nd = 7 points
3rd = 5 points
Just for entering = 1 point!
There will also be points for just being RAD and helping someone out!
I will keep the scores updated on here!
We are going to use the Berrics rules which are as follows:
1. FLAT GROUND ONLY
BUT that does not mean everything on flat ground counts
The game of skate is traditionally only played with tricks done on flat ground. That means only flip tricks count, no ramps or rails will count.
2. No feet on the ground
That means you are not allowed to do no-complys, hand plants, or bonelesses.
3. No grabs
A grab on a skateboard is when your hand reaches down and holds the board while in the air.
4. No Manuals
Flat ground tricks need to be landed on all four wheels to count as a land.
5. No tricks that slide on the ground
Especially if your opponent popped their trick!
7. The last letter gets two tries on E
The defense gets only one try to land the trick to avoid the letter until the final round. When the skater is on their last attempt to land, two tries helps them stay in the game.
8. Offensive toe drag gets one do-over
When setting a trick, there is a higher level of how clean it should be. If a foot touches the ground from heel drag or toe touch, the skater has a second chance to clean it up.
9. Defensive toe drag has a bigger margin of error
But it will ultimately be decided by the referee if it was a particularly sloppy trick or if the tail skid on the ground there might not be a second chance.
