$10,000 Cash on the Line Plus a Trip for Winning Team to South Africa to Compete in Rider Cup Championship During the 2014 Kimberley Diamond Cup

SACRAMENTO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 10, 2014) - World Skateboarding Grand Prix announced today it will bring the World Skateboarding Rider Cup -- a team skateboarding championship -- to NYC's five boroughs: Manhattan, Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island this summer. The World Skateboarding Rider Cup -- NYC will take place over a six week period every Saturday beginning mid-June. Local skateboarders will form teams to represent their boroughs and compete in a jam format contest for a shot at a $10,000 cash prize and an all-expenses paid trip to South Africa to compete in the World Skateboarding Rider Cup championships during the 2014 Kimberley Diamond Cup.

Teams must be made up of four riders, with an alternate in case of injury, all from the same borough. Two, four or eight teams will represent each district. Teams will compete in skateparks divided into four sections. Each section will belong to a rider on each team and they will be judged head-to-head. Skaters will be judged based on the number of tricks landed, difficulty of tricks and overall impression.

To advance to the finals, teams must accumulate the highest number of points for the neighborhood they are competing in. The winning team from each borough will receive a $2,000 cash prize and advance to the finals. The top three teams in Brooklyn and Queens and the top two teams in Manhattan, Bronx and Staten Island will advance to the finals. The final 12 teams will compete at LES Skatepark in Manhattan for the $10,000 first place cash prize.

Legendary New York skateboarder and founder of 5boro NYC, Steve Rodriguez, will produce the World Skateboarding Rider Cup contests. "I'm looking forward to producing this event for World Skateboarding and to bring this event to the five boroughs," said Rodriguez. "This is a great concept and something different from usual skate contests. Where else better to kick off a contest like this than NYC? The team challenge format is cool because we all know there are already so many crews in each borough and it will be cool to see how they stack up against other crews from other boroughs!I'm excited to see which borough comes out on top."

"We introduced the World Skateboarding Rider Cup at the 2013 Kimberley Diamond Cup World Skateboarding Championships and it was a huge success," said Tim McFerran, GM of World Skateboarding Grand Prix. "We had teams from all over South Africa travel to Kimberley to compete. It was such a unique concept for a skate event, and was so well received that we've already had interest from other countries and are planning to expand the contest globally. But first, we wanted to bring the event to the US, and when we started thinking about locations, New York with the five boroughs, just immediately made sense for the team format. Steve reached out to us last year and we discussed doing an event last summer, but just didn't have enough time. Everyone knows that if you're going to do an event in New York, Steve is the guy to get it done. We think the New York skate community is going to love this event and we can't wait to bring it to New York City this June."

Skateboard Movies Show Awesome Tricks with Simple Plots

I found a couple of skateboard movies you might like. The first one that stands out the most for me is Lords of Dogtown . A couple of reasons right off the bat are the late Heath Ledger shines in this movie, and it is directed by Catherine Hardwicke. Hardwicke directed the first Twilight movie, which turned the theater going people on its ear, creating an ever so popular franchise.

The movie follows four young boys in the 1970s in southern California. Thane Magee, who owns Griffin Skateboards has been skating since he was seven in 1977. He highly recommends this movie because it "gives an idea of the California lifestyle of skateboarding."

The characters in the movie are best friends - free spirits - hanging out at the beaches. One cool hangout is the famous Dogtown in Santa Monica. Clearly we see these young skateboarders eat, sleep, breath and live skateboarding.

All they do is skateboard, and if they are not skateboarding, they hangout. We meet Skip (Ledger), at his surfboard and skateboard shop. He is one cool dude.
