We have decided to keep it mainly a street event with some transitions thrown in. The course will include the stair sets the plaza the bacon strip and the A-frame section. The contest is FREE to enter and FREE to watch!

Skaters will skate in a 5 man jam sessions for 3 minutes. The top 5 skaters of each age group will compete in a final jam session.  Once all the age brackets has been completed the awards will be handed out.  Sign up starts at 11:00 and the contest will start at 12:00.  We will have some fried catfish and jambalaya on hand for contestants and the audience alike.  Come out and skate or just enjoy the park and watch the skaters.

2012 Skate it up was at Southside skatepark again! Thanks to Big O for hosting the contest at the best indoor/street park in Houston and surrounding area.
Elijah Moore and Dog Tacos author Terry McChesney came down to Judge. We had the usual street contest and added a bowl jam of all ages! The contest again was free to enter and watch. Our friends from Sk808 brought rhymes and busted out the raps along with some sick wheels. Thanks to everyone that came out!

Here are a few posters from our past skate contest along with a few of our promotional videos.
