The largest skateboarding magazine in the world, Thrasher Magazine is the media sponsor and will be touring and filming this event in every city.
Although this pairing of pro-skating teams will be a once in a life time spectacle, the teams state that it will be a relaxed demo and could turn into locals skating with the pros as well. The sight of these two extremely talented teams performing together in the City of Pittsburgh, is something that all local skaters and spectators will remember forever.
