Skate Competition


My name is Brian Starnes. My brother's, Carson. We are extreme sports enthusiasts. Our entrance into the wonderful world of adrenaline and limitless drives for fun and fame began the first time we strapped on some blades and tried to drop into a 6ft half pipe. I ate it. He ate it. We laughed, and as became the norm, he landed it first.

As our skill levels increased we traveled to compete, but our two favorite competitions were still in our home town. Super Hick, the local park comp, organized by one of our best, Tom Hyser, and our Christmas street comp, Ho Ho Ho's run and organized by the one and the only Kevin Dowling.

They unfortunately no longer exist.

To continue the tradition: Create an event that could combine the two formats used by our predecessors. Provide a proper medium of competition that would bring friends together once a year to show off, progress and claim a title. 

The solution: “A-Town Stomp.” It began as a typical street comp: $10 buy-in. 3 spots. Top three get pay out. Year three was different. We started the comp with two street obstacles and finished with a handmade outdoor street park. Awesome layout because of its duality, respect to/break from tradition, and the versatility required by competitors to win. Not to mention we got to build a super rad one time use skate park in the city, actualizing our desire for new obstacle design.

The fourth installment of The A-Town Stomp, Fourplay, will follow the same lay out. Two street spots and a homemade street park. 

Where your money goes

All contributions to the fundraiser will be used to:

Rent land

Purchase building materials

And Most importantly, build the prize purse for the victors. Our cash prize pot increased from $100 in 2010 to $3,000 in 2012, and we hope to continue to provide more money to our victors each year.
