The Tampa Pro is one of the most respected grassroots contests in modern skateboarding competition. Since its humble beginnings dating back to 1995, the event has cultivated its own vibe with a signature blend of state-of-the-art skateboarding, live music and side events. Some of skateboardings best have walked away winners at SPoT events including Paul “P-Rod” Rodriguez and reigning SLS World Champion Nyjah Huston.
Recently, Skater XL locked down exclusive sponsorship of the Street League Skateboarding Championship Tour (SLS). With the partnership, Easy Day’s game became the official console/PC sponsor of the SLS. In addition, a new map based on Rodriguez’ indoor training facility was released. Back in August, Easy Day Studios released another free update that brought a multiplayer free skate mode to the game.
Since releasing back in July 2020, Skater XL has received mixed reviews from players and critics alike. While some appreciate the attempt at a virtual skateboarding revival, others feel the small studio’s offering just isn’t quite there.
Skater XL is out now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam. The game is also available at brick and mortar retailers and carries a $39.99 price tag. For the latest news and updates pertaining to Skater XL, the game regularly keeps fans up to date through its website and socials.
