Venice Beach, CA (one of the coolest places ever) is going to be hosting Sonic Generations Of Skate, an event which will feature 3 generations of pro skaters (including Tony Hawk and Steve Caballero) as they compete for prizes in vert-style competitions. Said to take place throughout what SEGA’s calling “a Sonic-themed day,” attendees will have the opportunity to play Sonic Generations, as well as the chance to, of course, skate, both in open skating sessions as well as in Skate Clinics, where those who sign up will have the opportunity to gain skating tips from various experts. You can order your tickets either for the open skate sessions or the Skate Clinics here, though space is limited and tickets are going fast.
“ASA is always trying to develop events with unique formats and fresh concepts that bring something new to the table— both for the skaters and the crowd. SEGA really understood that mentality and is a tremendous partner for this event. They have such a great history of setting trends in their own industry, as proven by Sonic the Hedgehog reaching his 20th anniversary this year.”
-Rick Bratman, CEO of ASA Entertainment.
Sonic Generations of Skate is set to take place on Saturday October 22nd. Don’t live in Cali? You’ll have the opportunity to catch the event on Fox Sports Network Friday, November 25th.
