aBOUT SkatercrossSM Skateboard racing

 

At Skatercross Inc., we organize and produce skateboard events, competitions, clinics and demonstrations.  We are the one-stop-shop from track design and build to race timing, logistics and formatting. We keep the official race-by-race times, records and overall standings.  

Our courses are unlike any others: riders race shoulder to shoulder through a track littered with gaps, bumps, jumps, hurdles and berms. The first one across the finish line wins
