Roll Call

Skateboarding isn’t just a sport – it’s 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. Phoenix’s 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.

If you're interested in participating, pre-register for free at any Cowtown Skateboards location.
