Normally, turning tricks for cash would be frowned upon by law enforcement, society and your mom, but Adidas and Cowtown Skateboards have found a way to make it okay: Tricks for Twenties. At this free-to-enter contest -- the first of three to be held this year -- reps from Cowtown will descend upon Foothills Skatepark in Glendale with microphones, free pizza, and $1,000 worth of Andrew Jacksons. Throughout the night, they’ll call out skateboarding tricks for all skill levels and the first person to correctly perform each trick gets a crisp $20 bill. Land all your kickflips, gingersnaps, and Casper Disasters and you just might earn enough skrilla to make mom proud.
Tricks for Twenties rolls into Foothills Skatepark, located at 5708 West Union Hills Road, at 6 p.m. Friday, September 5. Visit www.cowtownskateboards.com for more.
