Riviera Skateboards: The Catalina Island Classic Teaser
Riviera Skateboards just released this teaser video of the upcoming Catalina Island race and it looks pretty amazing.
In 1977, a small group of elite downhill skaters took over the City Of Avalon to participate in the original ‘Catalina Classic’. A 250 yard downhill race course tucked in the hills of an exotic little island located just 26 miles offshore, yet a world away from the rat race just across the channel. These skaters, along with this event have inspired generations of riders and largely contributed to the lifestyle synonymous with our part of the World. With a huge nod of respect to the originals of downhill skating – Riviera Skateboards and our closest friends presents, The Catalina Island Classic on May 5th-6th, 2012. A weekend long island skate invasion including live music performances, a miniramp demo featuring Mike Vallely and Elephant Brand Skateboards, and a 1.2 mile, invitation only downhill race event with a cash purse of $5000.
The Catalina Island Classic is an open to the general public event, Come one – Come all.
