Carlsbad, CA

Our third time putting on a contest in California was also our first time dong it south of Orange County, at Transworld Skateboarding's HQ! Definitely one of the best events we've ever had. Thanks to everyone that came out!

As part of the “Connect & Compete” event with Work in Skateboarding, the Collegiate Skate Tour contest was a great time for student skateboarders from all over Southern California to meet up, skate the TWS park together, and compete for sick prizes (and possible bragging rights). Skaters flocked to Carlsbad from as far south as San Diego and even from north of Santa Barbara. With burgers and dogs grilling, music playing, and energy high in the park, it all ended with a well-deserved podium:

1. Zack “Ducky” Kovacs - CSU San Marcos (San Marcos, CA)
2. Robby Hargreaves - Allan Hancock College (Santa Maria, CA)
3. Tim Misagal - El Camino College (Torrance, CA)
