Guys you don't know how to read huh? it's an invitational competition, meaning only top skateboarders from different places who are invited are allowed to join. So if you don't receive an invite then the only thing you need to do is watch and cheer for your favorite rider.

5 skaters from Singapore have been selected to join the competition.

2 to 3 more slots are available and there will most likely be a jam format qualifier.

So if you weren't invited you may still have a chance to gain entry into the competition!

Make sure you get to Ngee Ann City early if you are planing to register for the jam qualifier.
