This morning, The Boardr posted a 9-part series detailing “How To Run a Skateboarding Event.” The informative videos, hosted by Ryan Clements, Scotty Conley, and Rob Meronek, cover everything you could possibly need to know about making contests happen.
It’s crazy how detailed The Boardr team’s training guide is; it’s completely indispensable for novice organizers as well as seasoned party throwers. Just the fact that they’re willing to share their deep, deep, DEEP trove of knowledge and experience with the rest of the skateboarding world is truly special.
Let’s put it this way: Sure, we’re all passionate about the spontaneous nature of skating, but the more you prepare for your event the more successful you’ll be. Here’s the description for the above video (episode #1, ”Getting a Venue,” hosted by Ryan Clements):
“Before we started The Boardr years ago, we ran events with Skatepark of Tampa for nearly two decades. We’re still trying to improve everything we’re doing, including evolving along with skateboarding and staying true to core values. We took some time to document everything from our playbook for a successful event in hopes that you or your organization can throw some fun and organized skateboarding events of your own.
“Whether large or small, existing or something you’re planning for the future, we hope this detailed series covering all the major topics of running a skateboarding contest helps. If you have any questions or want our help in making your skateboarding event as professional and fun as it can be, hit us up at [email protected]”
