Update: The contestants have been picked and the bracket is now set. Check it all out above, and be sure to tune in this Saturday, October 19, for the first match between Lacey Baker and Mariah Duran.

Original Story (October 4, 2019): The brainchild of Steve Berra and Eric Koston, The Berrics is known for its viral skate-centric content. One of its most popular series is Battle At The Berrics, and now, for the first time ever, the company is set to introduce a women’s-only iteration of its famed head-to-head contest.

As BATB began back in 2008 and the ranks of men’s champs include skateboarding savants like Paul Rodriguez, Chris Joslin, and PJ Ladd, it’s one of the most esteemed tests of skill in the world of action sports. The contestants face off in a bracket-style, single elimination, winner-takes-all tournament. In each round, two skilled riders go trick for trick in a H.O.R.S.E.-style game of flat ground skating until one can’t hang. The winner moves to the next round to face another challenger, the loser skates off to compete another day. The tricks are heavy and the competition is even heavier — it’s likely that some of the world’s finest female skaters will be vying for the #1 spot and the prestige that comes with it.

Want to get in on the action? If you’re a shredding girl who’d like to participate, you can upload your best flatground maneuvers to Instagram, and use the hashtag #WhoIsInWBATB for your chance to enter. The chosen contestants will be officially announced on October 14.
