Following the success of previous events this year’s Vans Shop Riot contest has expanded and is split into a Northern and Southern leg. This year the contest will take place at the Prevail Skatehouse in Poole and at the R-Kade Skatepark in Redcar. The first leg of the contest is this coming Sunday. Each shop sends a team of riders and the winning team is entered in an all expenses trip to the European finals in October. It’s a fun event with free Vans waffles and £2000 prize money up for grabs. Slam City Skates are proud to be sending Neil Smith, Casper Brooker and Darius Trablaza. Darius and Casper are more than at home in a park scenario as I’m sure you know Smithy is. We’re looking forward to seeing how they get on. If you want to go and need more information have a look here.
