About the Spyder Cup:  The Spyder Cup is a Pro & Am. Skateboard Series.  They have events all over the USA & abroad. BMX, Scooters & Rollerblades. Founded by Steve Steadham.

The history of the Spyder Cup begins five years ago in Hawaii when skateboarding pioneer Steve Steadham saw that the popular tropical destination was the ideal venue for a skateboarding event
which promotes both community and a healthy, sports-orientated lifestyle.  After discussing the concept with close friend Michael Kays,, they both began the Spyder Cup. Once witnessing the raw energy and success of the event for themselves, it wasn’t long before key figures within the extreme sports industry suggested to Steve that he expand the Spyder Cup to the other 49 states. Click here to read more!
