The Berrics is hosting the 2021 USA Skateboarding National Championships at its Los Angeles, California headquarters, and you can watch the video directly above. At the time of writing the contest is live, but when it’s over the entire stream will still be available for viewing.
Presented by Toyota, the contest’s disciplines consist of men’s and women’s park and street skating. Several heavy hitters — including Dashawn Jordan, Louie Lopez, Jagger Eaton, Bryce Wettstein, Poe Pinston and more — are involved as well. There’s a lot on the line for the participants: eight finalists in each discipline will receive qualifying points for the USA’s Olympic Games skateboarding team, and four national champions will be crowned as well. The contest’s field is deep, with a whopping 20 skaters competing in each discipline and vying for a shot at Olympic glory in 2024.
