Introducing Rockstar Energy Open

Coming to Downtown Portland, Oregon this August 23-25

The new Rockstar Energy Open will bring together the next generation of skateboarders and celebrate skateboarding culture in Downtown Portland, Oregon, with competitions, art, music, and more.

Rockstar Energy Drink has teamed up with premier content creators of Platfrm—an all-new media destination—to launch the inaugural Rockstar Energy Open on August 23-25, 2024, in Portland, Oregon. Portland’s deep roots within the skateboarding community serve as a prime location to celebrate the newly minted Rockstar Energy Open, bringing street and park competitions, live music, art installations, and more to the historic Waterfront Park in the heart of the city.

 

The Rockstar Energy Open seeks to invite over 100 top-tier and up-and-coming street and park skateboarders on imaginative courses purpose-built for displaying the world’s best skateboarding. Leading up to the event, street skateboarders worldwide will have the opportunity to compete with invited pros through an innovative Video Qualifying Series (VQS) hosted on ThePlatfrm.com, offering a true open invitation format.

Beginning June 12, skateboarders can post their video part for the chance to be voted Overall Best Men’s & Women’s Part, Overall Best Trick, Viewer’s Choice and Video of the Week over the seven-week competition. Video submissions will be judged by fans and experts in hopes of making it to the Rockstar Energy Open to compete against the world’s best skate athletes in Portland. Full details and rules on submissions can be found at ThePlatfrm.com.

 

Pro skater Chris Joslin added, “As a Rockstar-sponsored athlete, I’m thankful for the opportunity to compete at a world-class level and love that this event will infuse the up-and-coming generation of skaters into the mix.”

 

Rockstar Energy Open will be free and open to the public, with VIP upgrade options available for an elevated experience. The competition will be live streamed on ThePlatfrm.com and can also be viewed globally on streaming networks including Platfrm channels, CaffeineTV, Proseiben, FuelTV and more.
