50 TRICKS – EVENT INFO

EVENT RUN : SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST 2015 TO FRIDAY, APRIL 1ST 2016

SPIN Skateshop/Skatepark presents our annual fall & winter trick challenge contest where 50 different skaters will win $500 each for landing one of our 50 “never-been-done-here” tricks. All of these tricks – be it legit shit or dumb dares – gets you paid cash money on the spot. We called this event to help skaters from abroad have a chance to make a few bucks on their road trips and to keep people motivated and challenged during the depressing winter season north of Washington DC.

This event spans 5 months or until all tricks have been stomped. Skaters need only show up, check out the remaining tricks still posted on our giant 50 TRICKS billboard, pay their SPIN Skatepark admission and get filmin’! We are commited to payout all of the $25,000 of prize money, so we reserve the right to change any of the remaining tricks during the course of this event in an effort to get all 50 made by April 1st 2016.

Skaters must provide SPIN with acceptable quality video proof of the landed trick and SPIN will determine if it is banged clean enough for the win. SPIN will share the winning videos with its sponsors and media partners and riders are encouraged to do the same. It is one rider per $500 prize IT IS NOW OPEN TO ANYONE – EVEN IF YOU ALREADY DID ONE TRICK – we want as many people as possible to get paid in this world of invite-only staged promo contests. However, there is one exception to allow a rider to take on a second trick (see small print on or billboard at SPIN).

50 TRICKS – EVENT  FORMAT

1)  They show up, pick a trick, pay their $14 admission gracefully and take all the time they need that day to land that shit ON FILM. No one rides for free. We have a fuckin’ rent to pay.

2)  The footage is then presented to one of the senior SPIN chancellors for judgement on cleanness of trick execution and acceptability of video quality .

3)  If deemed worthy, the conqueror will receive $500 cash and their admission back. So $514. SPIN now co-owns footy and can do with it what it pleases. Please include any extra footy (fails, silliness etc.) for our year-end montage. You also own the video, so whatever. One payout per rider. See “hidden exception” below.

This is a hidden exception. We will accept a second trick attempt by a rider under these circumstances:

Rider must show up in a disguise, with an invented name and with a home-made ID card (drawn in pen or wuteva).

They must keep a straight face as they show up and announce their participation – too many giggles and they will be banished from the building. Before attempting the trick, they must tell us about a very personal and mildly traumatic experience from their actual childhood – at which we reserve the right to LOL at.

Good Luck to All.
