*Skate Wars Productions LLC marked the beginning of a new class of organized skating competitions; when the founders began preparing the city of Los Angeles to support urban skateboarders and extreme sports.
The results of their planning and efforts culminated with the first SK8 Wars Urban Battles AM Tour at the L.A. Sports Arena March, 2012.
“It was a wonderful thing to witness, there was a tremendous turn out of skaters; it was a beautiful skating course and management was good,” President of Maui Cruzer Skateboards, Glover Cleveland said. “I see it as having the potential for becoming the X Games for amateur skaters.”
Cleveland said he hadn’t seen so many inner city skateboarders turn out for a competition in his the entire 15 years of manufacturing skateboards. And so, according to industry professionals like Cleveland, because SK8 Wars founder’s primary goal is to support urban youth, the first SK8 Wars Urban Battles AM Tour was a success; but not without obstacles that the SK8 Wars Productions team said they plan to resolve.
As Skate wars Productions LLC moves forward, two day skate camps are planned, in addition to demo skate events from city to city, throughout the year. Improvements in discussion for SK8 Wars Urban Battles AM Tour, 2013 include age classifications, added competition categories to address different skating styles, full use of course apparatuses and revamped judging methods.
