The History of the Clash at Clairemont

The Clash at Clairemont began in 2007 as a cooperative effort between Pro Skateboarder Andy Macdonald, the YMCA, Grind for Life and Industry Sponsors like Pacsun and SoBe beverages. The first year’s event unveiled the new Vert Ramp (The 2006 X-games Vert ramp re-constructed on the grounds of the YMCA skatepark). The event, a celebration of the newly acquired ramp and park renovations was an opportunity to create a fundraiser that benefits the Mission Valley/Krause Family Bike and Skatepark and the Grind for Life Cancer charity. The event featuring over 45 of today’s best Action Sports athletes, live music and family fun was a huge success!

Years 2009-20013 expanded on that success with new and exciting features, events, expanded Vendor Village area and naturally more of the very best athletes in Action Sports. Add in terrific musical acts and industry sponsor support a classic annual event was born. Media attention and attendance skyrocketed and now the Clash at Clairemont has cemented it’s first class reputation as a terrific family oriented celebration of Action Sports and charitable cause!

In 2015 the Clash at Clairemont 9 once again will deliver with a star studded athlete roster, incredible musicians, food and fun for the whole family in its ongoing pursuit of benefiting the Mission Valley YMCA / Krause Family Bike and Skatepark and Grind for Life’s mission of Helping People with Cancer”.

We hope to see you there and thank you for your support!
