Grand Slam of Skateboarding 2008

With the first major skateboard event just wrapped up, World Cup Skateboarding has announced the schedule for the Grand Slam of Pro Skateboarding which will feature 4 events (well, really five) around the world. Here are all the details from the organisers:

New for 2008, WCS announces the debut of the Grand Slam of Skateboarding. The new combination of events features 4 international Pro Skateboarding competitions for street and vert, also known as the Majors. These events will become the new WCS point series:

1. Rio Vert Jam – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Vert
Slam City Jam – Vancouver, BC, Canada – Street
2. World Skateboarding Championships Rotterdam, Holland – Vert & Street
3. Mystic Sk8 Cup 2008 – Prague, Czech Republic – Vert & Street
4. Maloof Money Cup – Costa Mesa, CA – Vert & Street

As the atmosphere of competitive skateboarding has changed over the years with the advent of Action Sports events, WCS has made the decision to feature 4 pro international skateboarding only competitions. In the words of WCS President/Director, Don Bostick, “The Grand Slam will be the elite international series of the year for skateboarding only events. We feel this will bring more exposure, prestige and value to each event as well as attracting the top invited professional skaters.”
