The Maloof Money Cup – serious business or fun?

The Maloof Money Cup

The Maloof Money Cup has turned quiet a few heads in the last two years with the announcement of the largest cash prize purse in the history of skateboard contest up for grabs – an insane amount of $450,000 will be split between the skaters participating. And the list of skaters is long and well known. Well, if I was skating at that level I probably wouldn’t mind having a go!

The street course has now been made public and the media attention is growing daily (CBS will be televising the event by the way) which will push this contest into the league of the X-Games and most likely even beyond. Transworld Skateboarding went straight to the source, Joe Maloof, owner of the Sacremento Kings and the Palms Hotel and online casinos österreich, to find out what drives a man who had nothing to do with skateboarding to organise an event of this size and dimension. Read the interview right here.

Here’s the list of skaters involved July 11th-13th in Orange County, California. Sure wish I could be there *sniff,moan*…
