Back for year two, the TransWorldSKATEboarding “Come Up Tour” (AKA: TWS C.U.T.) is a six-stop amateur skate contest series that tours across the U.S. in search of the best unsponsored skateboarders. But the contest doesn’t end there. The six regional winners will then get the chance to “Come Up!” for the grand prize, the title of C.U.T. Series Champion and a “Check Out” in TransWorld Magazine.

Step one is to compete at one of six local contests:
April 5 – Sacramento – The Hanger Skate
Park (20 28thSt.)

April 12 – Austin – House Skatepark
 (West 15thSt.& Lamar Blvd.)

April 19 – Minneapolis – FamiliaSkatepark
 (835 E. Hennepin Ave.)

April 26 – Portland – Windell’s Skate Park (59550 E. Hwy 26, Sandy, OR)

May 3 – Phoenix – Peoria Skatepark (8877 W. Thunderbird Rd., Peoria, AZ)

May 10 – New York – LES Coleman Skatepark (62 Pike St.)

Step two, eachof the six regional event winners will then get a month to film a video part that will be hosted on TWSkate.com.  Fans will have two weeks to vote for their favorite and then the skater with the most votes will be named TWS C.U.T. Series Champion.

Each local stop will also dole out tons of gear and other prizes from sponsors:Etnies, Alien Workshop, Fred Water, Art Of Board, Windell’s Camp, Official, Asphalt Yacht Club, Dakine, Stance, Independent, Bones, and Rastaclat.
