Converse Coastal Carnage, an invite- only pro/am skate contest consisting of more than 30 A-list skateboarders, returns to Huntington Beach this year, anchored against the backdrop of the US Open of Surfing. Converse Coastal Carnage continues in its second year as the skate component to the weeklong celebration of the world's top action sports athletes. The contest was free to the public and ran Friday August 6th through Sunday, August 8th.

Coastal Carnage 2010 is taken to the next level, from every angle. The course, a double bowl with plenty of hips and tight corners, is twice as large this year and incorporates a new vert section that's guaranteed to keep every competitor ripping hard! The stakes are high not only on the challenging course, but also with this year's prize purse, with a total pot of $75,000.

The jam format is broken up into 10 qualifying rounds that pit 4 riders against each other simultaneously. Because Converse Coastal Carnage is a pro/am event, the most experienced professionals like Lance Mountain and Kenny Anderson will be seen battling it out alongside today's up and coming ams like Tommy Remillard, Curren Caples and Grant Taylor. Coastal Carnage is truly a test of endurance and will, and last year proved it's anyone's contest.

"Everyone who skated in last year's contest had a good time and skated amazingly because the vibe on the beach was just incredible. We've put a lot more into the contest this year overall, in ways that we know will get the crowds and everyone in the contest hyped up," says Converse Skateboarding Brand director Steve Luther.
