Skateboard Showdown

Red Bull Hart Lines, promoted as “one of the most dynamic competitions in skateboarding,” will livestream from Detroit’s Hart Plaza on Red Bull TV tomorrow, May 13, at 3:30 pm ET.

This year’s drama revolves around the return of Ryan Sheckler, who missed last year’s competition due to injury. Other favorites include defending champion and world number one Nyjah Huston, Brazilian Felipe Gustavo and former Transworld Skateboarding Street Skater of the Year Torey Pudwill. Also, for the first time, a female skateboarder, Brazil’s Leticia Bufoni, will compete.

Bufoni shows some moves:

The course is comprised of two distinct lanes, each with its own set of skateable features as well as existing stair sets, rails and ledges. Athletes skate each lane twice, and based on a combination of style and skill, the top score from each lane is then averaged and balanced against the quickest time to determine a winner.

Red Bull TV is available online and via mobile devices, smart TVs and other connected devices.
