Red Bull Skate Arcade 2014

Red Bull Skate Arcade is the only global skate contest to mix online footage uploads with a real-world finale to crown the undisputed king of the arcade. The concept is simple: from June 2 until August 4, any skater around the globe can sign up, enter their footy into each of eight levels of trick difficulty, and graduate to a head-to-head skate comp on September 12 to see if they can deliver consistency to match the style and creativity of their uploaded tricks. If we tell you last year’s final contest was held in a fairground up a mountain, you know we aren’t playing games.
