So you think you can skate and you wanna win some cool gear? Well, there are several skate competitions starting up this spring and summer that you should check out. It'll give you a chance to skate against some of the best kids your age - which is better than watching that fat chump from up the street eat concrete every time you go to your neighborhood skate park.

The Next Cup kicks off in April, 2001. It's a skate competition series across California with three age groups (0- 10, 11 - 14, and 15 and up.) It's sponsored by the guys that make Osiris shoes. There's trophies and prizes for the division winners and a ton of giveaways for everyone who enters.

If you're on the East Coast, Skater Island has a series of amateur skate contests that start at the end of April. Skater Island is one of the largest indoor skateparks in the world. It has everything - including a massive street course and a nine foot bowl. Skater Island also runs skate camps in the summer for all ages.

For chicks on boards, the All Girl Skate Jam will be coming to Clearwater, Florida on March 25th at the Central Skate Park. The AGSJ has pro and amateur divisions in street, vert and mini-ramp. So if you're a girl that skates - check it out. It's open to all girls, all ages and all abilities. The Jam will feature some of the best female riders including Cara-Beth Burnside, Ami Caron and Jenn O'Brien. The AGSF will also be making a stop in New York in July and then in San Diego on September 9th. To register for any of these events or to get more info, head to www.allgirlskatejam.com

You can also check out the Slam City Jam which goes this spring in Vancouver. The SCJ is the largest skateboard competition in North America. If you can't make it there to see it live, you can catch it on NBC on May 19th, 2001.
