Cambridge SkateFest (formerly Battle Boston) is an annual competition and demonstration event in Cambridge, MA to promote the sport of inline skating. This year’s event will be on the weekend of September 12th & 13th, 2015. For this year, in addition to a freestyle slalom battle, we will also have a freeride skating contest. Slalom and freeride skaters at all levels are encouraged to register and compete, and everyone is welcome to come and watch. (Register by Friday, August 28th to receive a free event T-Shirt.)
As usual, some awesome aggressive skating at the Boston Street Battle earlier this month. (Organized by Thuro every year, usually in early November.) The skaters’ skills are always top notch, so for anyone interested in skating, it’s absolutely worth checking out! Here’s a short clip from near the end of the competition:
This year’s Battle Boston will be on the weekend of September 6th and 7th, 2014. (Competition will be on Sunday morning.) It is an annual competition and demonstration weekend in Cambridge MA, to promote the sport of freestyle slalom and inline skating. Freestyle skaters at all levels are encouraged to register and compete, and everyone is welcome to come and watch. This competition is part of USFSA’s North American Slalom Series.
Battle Boston will be awarding prizes for the top three competitors. In addition, Battle Boston organizers will host a block party/BBQ on Saturday night (competition eve) for all participants: free food and drinks, glow cones for after dark slalom, music, and a chance to relax and show off your slalom skills the night before the competition! And for those arriving earlier on Saturday, they’ll lead a fun, afternoon skate tour around Cambridge, incorporating some fun street skating and slaloming opportunities!
