Following the success of recent years events, Vans have made the decision to split the Shop Riot into two legs - North and South. Instead of holding the annual shop battle at one central park, this year there will be stops at Prevail Skatehouse in Poole on June 2nd, and R-Kade Skatepark in Redcar on July 28th. Both events will run from 2-6pm.

There's no hard rules to say Northern teams have to enter the Northern leg and vice versa, you can attend both and improve your chances if you like. The winner from each leg will go on to face the best Europe has to offer with an all expenses paid trip to the European finals in October (details TBC).

Expect good skateboarding, MC abuse, free Vans waffles, £2k prize money per leg and smiles all round.

If your shop team hasn't got it together and attended one of these before you need to sort your act out! Who will be victorious this year? Previous winners Black Sheep and 50:50 are the boys to beat!
