OFFICE BOOYZ SK8 Makes U.S. Debut at ASR San Diego this September - ONLINE REGISTRATION CLOSED!  IF ATTENDING ASR, REGISTER ONSITE AT 3PM SHARP!

If you never went pro, rock full pads at the skate park, are stuck with the title “Man-Am,” or just want bragging rights around the office, your chance at fame is finally here…IT’S PAYBACK TIME!!!  OFFICE BOOYZ SK8 has arrived.

Office Booyz is a contest for people who work in the action sports industry and was created by Karl Fuhre and his friends four years ago in Vancouver, Canada.  What started out as a few friends getting together to have a snowboard competition amongst fellow “Desk Jockies,” is now a full blow international contest series.

What:

Office Booyz SK8 is the non-contest, contest for all the “full-time” desk jockeys who work in the action sports industry.  Office Booyz SK8 is an “OPEN-JAM-SESSION” skate contest, so there’s no stress, anything goes and anyone can win a prize.  All you have to do is show up and skate with your peers and co-workers!
