Rampage frenzy at Venice with Big Air Triples

Coming to Venice Beach on September 22nd
Rampage frenzy at Venice with Big Air Triples If you are around Venice Beach this Saturday and love skateboarding, then I have something for you: another big brand is cashing on the popularity of skateboarding by jumping on the bandwagon. This coming week end, on Saturday, September 22nd , some of the world’s top skateboarding pros will be competing at the Big Air Triples, on the Venice Beach boardwalk. The event is sponsored by a leading mass media electronics company and it is a follow up to the same event that took place last year at the same place.

 This special event consists of a unique head-to-head bracket-style competition that showcases versatility and innovation on a one-of-a-kind 195-foot-long Big Air Triples course. The Triples format combines the best of park, vert and box jump skills while challenging the athletes to show off their best three back-to-back tricks on a course that includes a 26’ high roll-in ramp, two 25’ wide jumps and a course-ending 14’ high quarter pipe.

Skaters like Andy Macdonald, Jake Brown, Adam Taylor, Jagger and Jett Eaton are just a few of the pros appearing in the contest. "The Big Air Triples course is one of my favorite ramps to ride,” said 22-time X Games medalist Andy Macdonald. “It's going to be awesome having that massive ramp set up right on the beach in Venice where everyone can experience this new style of riding."

 ASA Entertainment will produce a one-hour television show about the Sony Big Air Triples that will premiere on Fox Sports Net on Friday, Nov.23 at 5 PM and 11 PM. The event is free to attend and kicks off at 1 p.m. at the corner of Ocean Front Walk and Windward Ave., next to the basketball courts on the historic Venice Beach boardwalk. In addition to the world-class competition, fans will be able to get autographs and experience the Sony Action Cam Extreme Zone.
