As the launch of The Ledge (at London Edge) Show approaches in September, anticipation is building for the 3-day skate competition taking place on the event’s purpose-built skate park. As key brands and buyers from the skatewear and adrenaline sport market come together to do business, they will also battle against each other in a contest of epic proportions! The 3-day show will also see a non-competitive display of tricks and talent.
On Sunday, September 4, the park will host a skateshop contest with confirmed teams including London’s Stand Up Skateshop, Conspiracy Skates from St Albans and LBC from Shoreditch going head to head. A £400 cash prize is up for grabs courtesy of sponsors Urban Kreation Clothing.
On Monday, September 5, the brand teams will stand up in a UK demo showcase. Invited brands including Shiner will host a series of demos at intervals throughout the day. This will be a great opportunity to see pro-riders from across the UK.
Tuesday will welcome an open-session where the cream of London’s up-and-comers taking part in a jam series featuring original tricks.
