Step one: Decide to hold en event at great cost, build a park, rent bleachers, pay people to make it happen.
Step 2: Entice skaters to skate for the chance of big bucks. Ensuring they will try hard and make a compelling story.
Step 3: After you have spent all that cash buying skate talent, and building a park and all the stuff that goes around it, not to mention advertising, and paying the staff to run it, then you get a TV deal, and sell TV advertising. Judging by the eagerness for people to throw these contests, Maloof's, ESPN, and now Street League, there are Big Bucks to be had in TV advertising.
Win-Win for the skaters I guess. Get flown in to town, skate a fun course, potentially get paid some extra cash. The chance for national TV fame.
