2016 Skateboarding Events and 2016 Skateboard Competitions
2016 year is shaping up to be one of the most important years ever in skateboarding history with more skateboard competitions and huge skating events than ever before. Lets take a look at the some of the largest 2016 skateboarding events and what’s in tour. Spoiler alert: this year is crazy packed with events.
X Games 2016
X Games 2016 Location: Austin, TX
X Games 2016 Dates: June 2nd, 2016 – June 5th, 2016
Everyone knows the 2016 X Games is going to be one of the largest 2016 skateboarding competitions. With a focus on multiple forms of multiple sports the X Games are an amazing place to catch both street skateboarding and vert skating. As far as star power expect the 2016 X Games to have a huge presence, megawatt name skaters will be crawling all over the place given the venue and the huge global coverage from ESPN and ABC. Austin is an awesome and skater-friendly city and the major air events are sure to be a spectacle.
Dew Tour 2016
Dew Tour 2016 Location: TBA
Dew Tour 2016 Dates: TBA
It wouldn’t be right to go without mentioning the Dew Tour. Like the X Games on wheels the 2016 Dew Tour will likely be packed to the brim with star power. Dew Tour is often an easier set of skateboard events to attend as, you guessed it, they roam on tour. They haven’t announced their 2016 tour locations yet but if the past is any indication they’ll have about three stops throughout the year with at least one tour date in Los Angeles. As far as 2016 skateboard events go the Dew Tour is definitely one of the bigger events though its not strictly a skateboarding competition.
SLS 2016 Location: TBA
SLS 2016 Dates: TBA
The 2016 Street League Skating Season is going to have some of the most important skateboarding events of 2016. Of course everyone is going to be tuned in to the Super Crown at the end of the season towards September/October, but before that we’ll all be watching the new minted Ams turned Pro through the SPoT / Dam Am / SLS farm system . Look for the usual arrangement of superstars and global locations. SLS 2016 season will likely continue to be the premiere skateboarding competitions in 2016 with major TV coverage and an international presence. If you’re in another country or aren’t near some of the larger events the SLS Season is an easier tour to get on location for a pro skateboarding event in 2016. No tickets to SLS 2016? No big deal. Even without tickets to any SLS event you can still catch the entire 2016 season streaming online.
Skate Park of Tampa – 22nd Annual Tampa Pro
2016 Tampa Pro Location: Tampa, FL
2016 Tampa Pro Dates: March 4th, 2016 – March 6th, 2016
Speaking of SLS skateboarding events… the 22nd Annual Tampa Pro is THE skateboarding event. This is the event where pros can come up and make the official SLS pro roster. As far as 2016 skateboarding events goes this is the ONE. The SPoT Dam Am event that leads to a Pro spot and a chance to get the SLS Golden Ticket is actually in 2015 in November so look for some fresh faces. If you want a 2016 skateboarding competition this is your jamz. Be sure to catch the exclusive live stream on the SLS website if its not one of the 2016 skateboard competitions you’ll have tickets for. Skate Park of Tampa Pro 2016
Woodward Camp – Skateboarding Camp 2016
Woodward 2016 Registration: Click here!
Woodward West 2016 Registration: Click here!
Not strictly an event but for all the groms, ams, and pros out there the ultimate summer 2016 skateboarding event is going to be summer skateboarding camp. From a family run camp in Pennsylvania to the #1 skateboard training destination worldwide the Woodward Camps have always been the gold standard for action sports summer camps. Pros and ams alike roll through camp all summer and thrown down on impromptu skate comps. 2016 summer registration has opened so if you want to get some training in for later 2016 skateboard events, you’re eyeing up 2017, you just want a week grom free then Woodward is a must-do. Remember, they now have Woodward West if you’re on the Best Coast!
Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon 2016
Skateboarding Marathon 2016 Date: November 2016
Skateboarding Marathon 2016 Location: San Diego, CA
There’s only one major endurance skateboarding event and its the Adrenalina Skateboard Marathon held yearly in San Diego. A grueling 26.2 miles of non-stop woodpushing this is not a skateboarding event for the faint of heart (literally). The world record is set around the 1hr 30min mark, for a normal skater expect to be pushing for 3 to 4 hours. Longboards and big wheels are a must for this event though there are standard park & street decks making the rounds. Like most skateboarding competitions this one has a party at a local brew pub after then event. If you’re looking for a destination skateboarding event in 2016 San Diego is a beautiful city. Plus the skateboard marathon is for all ages making it about the only 2016 pro skateboard event everyone can enter. Click here to check out the Skateboard Marathon.
Go Skateboarding Day 2016
Go Skateboarding Day 2016 Date: June 21, 2016
Go Skateboarding Day is the skateboarding event for everyone! Doesn’t matter if you’re a pro or an am or where you live on June 21st 2016 is the day you drop everything and go skateboard. Get out and roll. Its not a skate competition, its just fun. Born in Southern California, the unofficial home of skateboarding, International Go Skateboarding Day is sponsored by the skateboarding industry itself and celebrated by pretty much every skate. When it comes to 2016 skateboarding events, this is one that everyone MUST do. 2016 Go Skateboarding Day!
International Olympic Committee Vote – Skateboarding in the 2020 Olympics
Not really a skateboarding event in the classic sense its important to remember that 2016 is a landmark year for skateboarding. During the August 2016 meeting of the IOC they’ll vote to decide if skateboarding makes the 2020 Olympics as a official sport! You can probably catch the vote online the day after, no real need to watch it live.
