what does "skate jam format" mean?
Is it kind of like best trick?
Or more along the lines of who ever lands the most tricks?
thank you- i visit the site often but this is my 1'st comment.

There will be 5 riders per heat and each heat will last 3-4 minutes. Consistency and difficulty of the tricks being performed will both be judged.

What are the prizes for those who compete?

LCS said...

@Hafiz: Everyone that enters will receive a free event t-shirt.

We aren't sure about the prizes but we would presume skateboarding product from the sponsors listed on the event poster.

LCS said...

It means each skater will have a 1 minute run to perform as many difficult tricks as they can.

must we wear a helmet?

LCS said...

If you look closely on the flyer/poster. It states skaters must wear a helmet. Whether or not the organizers will enforce this we aren't sure. It might just be necessary for the grommies and rookies. If you have one bring it just to be safe.

During my run the MC incorrectly named 2 of the tricks I did.

This really distracted me when I was skating because I was worried the judges would also think I did the easier trick the MC was calling but I was doing a completely different one.

I know its hard being an MC and talking for hours and hours during an event but I didn't feel nice during my run and I think my score might have been effected. Other than that- it was a great event!
