FILIPINA skaters Christiana Means and Margielyn Didal will flip slick tricks with 14 other skateboarders in the coming Women’s Battle at the Berrics.

The format of the tournament is the same as basketball’s horse, wherein the first skater will pull a trick, then the others will have to imitate and so forth.

For basketball, it’s HORSE, but in skateboarding, it’s SKATE, so contestants will start from the letter S, then down to the letter E.

The skaters will show off tricks up in their sleeves at the Berrics, a private indoor skatepark owned by Steve Berra and Eric Koston, located in Los Angeles, California.

Didal and Means will be joined by other big names in the skate scene, namely Brazil’s Leticia Bufoni, Eliana Sosco, Monica Torres, and Karen Feitosa, Australia’s Liv Lovelace, and the Netherlands’ Candy Jacobs.

USA’s Lacey Baker, Samarria Brevard, Jenn Soto, Mariah Duran, Nika Washington, Adriane Sloboh, Monica Torres, Alexis Sablone, and Chelsea Castro round up the star-studded lineup.
