Third annual skate contest series will cover six cities in six weeks
(Houston, TX—May 6, 2015) Sikk Shades® – a new line of performance eyewear for the action sports market – is proud to sponsor TransWorld’s Come Up Tour. Starting May 9, the third annual amateur skate contest series will be touring the U.S. for six weeks in a row in search of the nation’s best unsponsored skateboarders. The tour will be stopping in major skate cities including Los Angeles, Oklahoma City, Nashville, Milwaukee, Portland and San Diego.
Sikk Shades supports the up and coming talent in the action sports industry. “We pride ourselves on supporting the underdog–the privateer scraping enough money to get to the next event or the Olympic hopeful who just needs a bit of assistance getting to the qualifying run,” said Eddie Bauer Jr., SikkShades CEO and founder. “We are psyched to have partnered with TransWorld’s ‘Come Up Tour.’ It was an ideal opportunity that we saw best fit for us.”
More than just a one-off, run and done skate contest, the TWS C.U.T. Series’ unique open playing field design, allows the chance for all skill sets and ages to “Come Up!” The top-3 skaters from the jam format contest will be awarded with a mammoth-sized stack of product from sponsors. The day’s crowned victor will also receive a custom trophy from Art Of Board. The winners from each stop will be given roughly 30 days to film a video part that will be hosted on TWSkate.com.
Fans will play an integral role in deciding the winner as they will vote for their favorite video over a 2-week period. The overall winner of the video contest will be named “TWS C.U.T. Series Champion” and will receive a “Check Out” in TransWorld Magazine!
Sikk Shades’ innovative Flash Electric Coating lens technology is what separates the brand from its competition. The big bonus with SikkShades Flash Electric lenses is that you do not get the prism and distance distortions that come with a polarized lens. “Those distortions are why action sport athletes and accuracy dependent athletes do NOT wear polarized lens. They cannot see instruments or properly judge distance as acutely as they need to in order to sustain top performance.”
Be sure to stop by the Sikk Shades booth this Saturday at Lincoln Skatepark in Los Angeles. We’ll be showcasing an array of product and giving you the chance to test it out for yourself.
