Pro skater Derek Scott is helping bring the event to his hometown. “I’ve always wanted to host a world class skate competition in my hometown of Salida, and I’m thrilled to be partnering with World Cup Skateboarding. We have a total prize purse of $10,000. This contest is also going to be part of the FIBArk lineup of events, which is our annual river festival. Those of you visiting Salida for the first time are in for a good time!”

Friends of Salida Skateparks is a volunteer group comprised of local skaters and community members who have worked tirelessly the past several years to get a new park built in Salida. Derek, along with skaters Shea Donavan and Ryder Reed helped spearhead the new park project.
