Later this week, China will be holding an international contest featuring skaters from 24 countries competing for a total of $115,000.00 USD in cash prizes. The 2,000 square meter course is located at the Longjiang Gymnasium in Nanjing City, Jiangsu Province, China and features both street and bowl sections. Roughly 30 pros are on board, including: Manny Santiago, Cody Lockwood, Sam Beckett, Micky Papa, and Ivan Monteiro. The Nanjing International Skateboarding Open goes down on April 24 and 25, and will be our first opportunity to see how Chinese skaters stack up against global competition as we continue the run-up to the 2020 Tokyo Games.
