ABOUT

Come join us on Saturday for FREE SKATING all day!

SPoT is proud to announce the 11th Annual Clash of the Crews Presented by Vans, an epic shop versus shop team battle. Four skaters can enter from each crew, [including one pro if you got it like that], PLUS an optional TM or owner to make yours a five person crew. In addition to the traditional Team Street contest and the Death Race that we've always done, we're adding Concrete Jam and Best Trick events with each team choosing one skater to represent their shop in each. The good times will be rolling January 17-18 and we hope to see your Crew at SPoT ready to get into it. Only one team will claim the Clash of the Crews title and bring victory home for their shop. Good luck!
