About 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. 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 Skate & Bike Park and the Grind for Life cancer charity. The event featured more than 45 of today’s best action sports athletes, live music and family fun, and it was a huge success! Over the past seven years, media attention and attendance skyrocketed, and now the Clash at Clairemont has cemented its first class reputation as a terrific family-oriented celebration of action sports and charitable cause!
