Scion Regional Amateur Skateboard Tour Returning to Corpus Christi’s Cole Skate Park

CORPUS CHRISTI, TX. (April 3, 2013) – Stop #2 of the 2013 Scion Regional Amateur Skateboard Tour (The RAT Tour) will take place on Saturday, April 13th at Cole Skate Park in Corpus Christi, TX. Action starts at 1:00pm and the event is FREE to the public.

Organized by Geiger Media in 2009, the RAT Tour was created to give local amateur skaters an opportunity to come hang out with their friends and compete in a relaxed, fun setting.

“We are excited to be returning to Cole Park – such a great coastal setting!” said event organizer Bill Geiger. “The series has really grown since we visited Corpus back in 2010 and the level of talent in this region continues to blow me away. We are stoked that we can provide a platform for all the local riders to do what they do!”

The 2013 Scion Regional Amateur Tour consists of six (6) events taking place in public skate parks across the southwest. Top amateur skaters of all ages will compete in both street and bowl competitions for over $15,000 in cash/prizes. The events also feature interactive vendor displays, skate related art displays and a DJ providing music/entertainment.

“We are very fortunate to have Scion automotive as the series Title Sponsor,” said Geiger. “The Scion brand is based on self-expression, creativity and enjoyment in life, and the RAT Tour really embraces those qualities. They are a great partner and definitely an integral part of our success.”

In addition to Scion, Stop #2 of The 2013 RAT Tour is made possible with support from Skateboarder Magazine, Monster Energy Drink, GoPro, Sector 9, SoFli Supply, Entropy Skateboards, Nixon, RVCA, NEFF, Kicker Audio, Sk8te Skins, Straight Skate, Benjamins, and Makeshift Skateboards.
