The following was sent to Inven Global as a press release.


Skater XL is a beloved skate sim leading the way on Steam with a passionate community of modders and many more players on PlayStation and Xbox. The title’s unique twin stick controls are coupled with realistic physics to create deep, satisfying gameplay.

Now the team behind Skater XL is working with the biggest event in skateboarding and as part of the 28th annual Tampa Pro to create the Skater XL Tampa Pro Live Esports Contest, which will be played on the official in-game map of the Skatepark of Tampa. This will be the first time a real-world skateboarding event will also have a parallel virtual esports event:

The all-new esports event will be live on Saturday May 7 on at 12:00PM PDT/ 3:00PM EDT and features 24 of the game’s best players to compete across all three platforms (8 competitors for PC, PlayStation and Xbox). To commemorate this first-ever Esports event, Skater XL will release a special Tampa Pro Esports Contest DLC Pack for Skater XL, with all proceeds going to the Boards 4 Bros skateboard charity.

“Tampa Pro is just this iconic event in skateboarding and we wanted our best players in Skater XL to not just experience the competitive spirit of this event, we wanted them to feel what it’s like to skate at the Skatepark of Tampa with a real championship on the line,” said Easy Day Studios founder Dain Hedgpeth.


“Tampa Pro is famous for providing the best skaters with the ultimate platform to put their talents on display. And we’re hyped to be partnered with Skater XL to become the first skate contest to cross over into esports. We can’t wait to see the excitement it brings to the digital realm,” said Paul Zitzer, Events Director, Skatepark Of Tampa.
