Skateboarding isnt just a sport its a lifestyle. What other modes of recreation come with cool clothes, shaggy-chic haircuts, and graphic tees? That takes dedication. And how is it that all skate shops seem to double as cool-kid hangouts? There must be something in skater blood.
The Phoenix skateboarding scene comes together for one extreme showcase in a battle of talent and grit. The Red Bull Triple Set starts off with a two-hour open practice at 7 p.m. during which boarders of all skill levels can show off and warm up.
At 9 p.m. the battle begins. Phoenixs best parade their shredding skills on the challenging triple set staircase. The custom-built obstacle gives riders the opportunity to display unique and daring tricks. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three boarders.
