The Rodeo is South Florida’s premiere skateboarding event is coming to Miami in September 2013. The purpose of the Skateboard Rodeo is to help raise funds and educate our community on new and unique local 501c3 non-profit organizations within the Miami-Dade County area.
Two Hundred (200+) skaters participated and hundreds of spectators attended last year. Skaters traveled from as far away as Jacksonville and Key West to battle for $3,000 in cash, prizes and sponsorship.
Amigos provides community kids with skateboard equipment, act as positive role models and sponsor summertime skate trips. The also offer free skate instruction clinics, holiday toy drives and collect food for needing people.
We are proud to announce that 305 Green will be hosting the Punk Rock Flea MarketÂ this year with a funky mix of original and eclectic finds, locally made products, Pop up Gallery featuring art by Alex Yanes, Josh Hall and Chris Valdes, skate shops and plenty of fun from some of the best independently run businesses in and around Miami.
The skate contest portion of the event will be comprised of six different style contests; a game of skate, highest ollie, blindfolded kick flips, ledge/box contest, barrel jumping and a stair/hubba contest. We will be adding more ramps to give the park a different feel and we have organized the contests in a way that will keep open skating in the park throughout the day ensuring a good time for everyone whether they will be competing or not.
Chris Casey will return this year to be the official contest announcer. He is best known as the co-host of Fuel TVs Captain and Casey show and has also hosted for Maloof Money Cup and Transworld Skateboarding.
