EVENT: Transworld Skateboarding "Come Up Tour" Back for Year Three

For the third consecutive year, the TRANSWORLD SKATEBOARDING “Come Up Tour” (AKA: TWS C.U.T) is back. A six-stop amateur skate contest series that tours across the U.S. in search of the best, unsponsored skateboarders in the country, this year the tour starts in Los Angeles and continues to Oklahoma City, Nashville, Milwaukee, Portland, and finally, San Diego.

More than just a one-off, run and done skate contest, the TWS C.U.T Series gives skaters the chance to “Come Up!”  In addition to a huge stack of product, the winners of each stop are given a month to film a video part that will be hosted on, where fans will vote for their favorite video over a two-week period.  The overall winner of the video contest will be named TWS C.UT. 2015 Series Champion and will receive a “Check Out” in TRANSWORLD Magazine.
