I’m riding my own contest because I just can’t seat there and watch my friends killing it but there is no way I’m getting any kind of prize money. If I place well enough to make some money I’ll give it all back to the homies.

The contest will happen in the middle of the festival. Party every night on the beach, you can grab a drink and watch the skateboard world cup, go swim, get a paddle board and chill… Good times, thanks to SOSH!
It’s super easy getting to Marseille (international airport, TGV train station or road).
