One day, every year, the Redondo Beach Pier’s scenic octagon lifts its restrictions on skateboarding for the annual King of the Harbor Skateboard Championships.

The championship’s third annual celebration, a partnership between the city and BeachLife Backyard Games, included a 5-foot half pipe for the Sunday event.

Pro-skaters like Tony Alva, Cindy Whitehead and Mason Silva joined in on the action, much to the excitement of fans.

The event featured two championship competitions — for adults and youth — and an after party at Barney’s Beanery, hosted by BeachLife Backyard Games.
