The History of the Clash at Clairemont
“The Clash at Clairemont began in 2007 as a cooperative effort between Pro Skateboarder Andy Macdonald, the YMCA, Grind for Life and Industry Sponsors like Pacsun and SoBe beverages. The first year’s event unveiled the new Vert Ramp (The 2006 X-games Vert ramp re-constructed on the grounds of the YMCA skatepark). The event, a celebration of the newly acquired ramp and park renovations was an opportunity to create a fundraiser that benefits the Mission Valley/Krause Family Bike and Skatepark and the Grind for Life Cancer charity. The event featuring over 45 of today’s best Action Sports athletes, live music and family fun was a huge success!
In 2008-2012 The Clash at Clairemont II-VI returned with resounding success. With the very best athletes from skateboarding and BMX along with terrific musical acts and industry sponsor support a classic annual event was born. Media attention and attendance skyrocketed and now the Clash at Clairemont has cemented it’s first class reputation as a terrific family oriented celebration of Action Sports and charitable cause!
In 2013 The Clash at Clairemont 7 will feature the Sonic Generations of Skate presented by Sonic Lost World! This unique team competition format celebrates three generations of half-pipe skateboarding over the past decades. Each Team consists of one 40-something skater (first generation), One 30-something skater (second generation) and one 20- something or younger skater (third generation) competing against the other teams with the same mix!”
