Summer is right around the corner which means warm weather, longer days and more time to skate outside. You may have your favorite skate park, shopping center, boulevard or boardwalk but what about creating your own park?! This Summer, we’re looking for people to post the most creative, non-conventional skate trick videos for a chance to win your very own custom skateboard. Here’s how it works:
We want Creative, Never Before Seen Footage!
To clarify, we aren’t seeking videos of kickflip done off a 50 foot house (it would be cool but we don’t want anyone to kill themselves during this competition) we want to see you create funny videos using props from your garage, bedroom, local park etc. Use ladders, chairs, ply wood, trampolines, ANYTHING! The world is your oyster. Find a cool spot in the woods or on abandoned fishing dock. Go explore, or stay in your backyard but wherever you decide to film, be creative! If you need some inspiration, and a good laugh, check out the video from @me_5j
Enter your videos by tagging @whateverskateboards in your caption along with hashtag #whateverbackyardsummer for a chance to win your own custom skateboard. Winners will be selected and reposted on the last day of Summer! GOODLUCK AND HAVE FUN!
