Goofy vs Regular – the tie-breaker

Regular claimed the first win, and then the Goofy squad came back the following year to take revenge, but come October 20-22 the Lake Forest Skatepark will settle this battle once and for all with the 3rd Annual Etnies Goofy vs Regular comp.

Here’s what’ll be going on over the weekend:

Team Goofy has appointed Dave Swift, editor-in-chief of The Skateboard Mag, as their captain, while the Regulars appointed SLAP Magazine’s Mark Whiteley and Joe Brook as co-captains. Each team captain will choose five skaters worthy to go right to the finals, while the rest of the riders must endure Saturday’s Qualifiers to make the cut. Ten per team will qualify on Saturday and fifteen skaters from each team will then compete in the finals on Sunday.

Sanctioned by the World Cup of Skateboarding, etnies GvR has invited more than 100 of the top professional skateboarders from around the world to compete for the $70,000 purse and supreme stance braggin’ rights. Invitees include 2005 GvR MVP’s Ronnie Creager (Goofy) and Chris Cole (Regular), Ryan Sheckler, Bastien Salabanzi, Andrew Reynolds, Nyjah Huston, Rodrigo TX, Colt Cannon, Jereme Rogers, Mark Appleyard and many more.

A highlight of the weekend will be a special performance by the Beastie Boys immediately following the contest at 8 p.m. on Saturday night.

What I’ve always wondered is what happens if someone skates switch..?
