With so many skateboard competitions struggling for national attention, only one has no trouble at all... The Maloof Money Cup. Why is it so loved by skateboarders? Several reasons.

First of all, skateboarders are not "extreme sports athletes" they are just skateboarders. Why does ESPN and Mountain Dew want to lump skaters together with motocross and like... hang gliding. The Maloof Money Cup is skateboarding, nothing else.
