The rules are designed to keep the competition fun. It’s not about who has the best skaters or who can do the most tricks. It’s about skating with your mates.
If someone is on your team it’s because you want to skate together not because you want to win. There are plenty of comps to try hard and be the best but this isn’t one of them. Now go have fun and don’t take it too seriously, it’s skateboarding!
Team & skaters
The team consists of 6 skaters, along with rad-dads (or mums), friends or others to provide transport, filming, editing, morale, hospital visits, etc.
Each team will need at least one member that must be a responsible adult over the age of 18. This person is responsible for all under 18’s in the team, as acting guardian and must sign a waiver and be present at all times during skating.
Teams have until 1 week before the event to register there team for that years event.
Each edit can be up to 12 min long. This should give enough time for both the challenges and the hammers that go down over the weekend.
Everyone that takes part in the event does so entirely at their own risk and must exercise judgement over what they are and aren’t willing to do. When skateboarding it is advisable to wear full safety protection all times. Care has been taken to ensure no tasks encourage illegal behaviour, but any that do are there due to editorial error.
If you get maimed, arrested, hurt, heartbroken or in any other way harmed, I don’t exist and neither does this event. If you don’t want to or don’t think you can do something, don’t do it. It’s only a laugh and it’s not worth doing anything that will be costly long term. Some of the tasks are only there for comedy value, if you can’t work out which ones are serious and which ones aren’t, this isn’t the competition for you.
An over 18 in each team will have to take the role of legal guardian for those under 18, you will be responsible for stopping them doing anything stupid or illegal.
