Note: This contest is being held by Active Ride Shop and IFILM, not Emerica.

Active Ride Shop and IFILM are excited to launch the very first Emerican Idol, an online competition to find the best amateur skateboarder! Amateur skaters from across the U.S. will submit their films, which will be posted on IFILM, and fans and pro skaters will vote each week for their favorites.

One winner will be named the Emerican Idol and will receive a Grand Prize, which will include product from Emerica, Baker and Krew. The winner may also be invited to select key events in Southern California to meet and hang with top pro skaters and a chance to enter the Am Contest.

Winning entries will be celebrated and featured on IFILM as examples of some of the top up and coming amateur skaters to watch for. Your first step to a career in professional skateboarding just got easier.

The search for America’s top amateur skateboarder began on May 1, 2005 and ends on August 1, 2005. Top entries will be posted on IFILM and the winners will be announced on September 1, 2005. Enter here.

Go Skateboarding Day, June 21!

Skip to the rants (0)

It’s coming up in less than a month!

For one day, skateboarders will take over the world! Imagine 20 million-plus skateboarders all riding at the same time! That will be the scene on the first day of Summer, June 21...also known as Go Skateboarding Day. Above all else, it’s a day for skateboarders to forget about school, work or other responsibilities and just skate. It’s also an opportunity for those who’ve never been on a skateboard to grab a friend and join in.

The first annual Go Skateboarding Day last June caught on quicker than anyone imagined. Skateboarders held events throughout the Americas, Europe, Australia and Japan. Some of those events included backyard jams, skatepark sessions and impromptu street missions.

Last year was just the beginning of the grind heard around the world. This year, Go Skateboarding Day is going to be even bigger and more exciting, so go to your local skate shop to find out about events in your area, or visit IASC.
