With great pleasure The Spot asd and ACS Oasi Verde announce that once again Italy, and the city of Rome will host World Cup Skateboarding, the most important officially sanctioned professional skateboarding world tour. The event will be held from June 30 to July 3 2011.

The theme we chose for this fourth year with WCS is “The Spot Paradise”. After evocating sulphoureus athmospheres last year with “The Spot Inferno”, we decided to offer riders and audience an heavenly and inebriating ambiance! All this without a stop in Purgatorium…
World Cup Skateboarding organizes overe 30 events in over 20 countries around the globe, and Rome’s eventi s part of the 5 top events (XGames Los Angeles, Maloof Money Cup in Sacramento, Bondi Beach Australia, Rome and Rio de Janeiro) that provide points for thr final standings. Besides, riders will compete for a fat slice of the €25000 prizemoney.

Over 100 riders, men and ladies, from the 5 continents, will put up a challenge in the three “classic” freestyle competitions: “street” and “bowl” at THE SPOT skatepark in Ostia, and “vert” in the largest “plaza” on Ostia’s seashore, Piazza Sirio!

Among riders pareticipating this year, “900 man” Sandro Dias (Bra) , and living legend of skateboarding Mike Vallely (USA). Many riders from southamerica will be flying in to try and replicate Milton Martinez’ success in 2008 and 2010 and Daniel Vieira, winner in 2009. Also, the best Italian riders!

The presence of such a nice roster shows World Cup Skateboarding is by now a consolidated tour also in a country that has only lately started offering national riders the chance to compete in world level events and with world class riders.
