[UPDATE  Saturday – 11:05 a.m.] Date Revealed

The puzzle has been completed.  It’s a map that points to iPlay America and Encore Event center in Freehold, NJ and now it reveals a date.  What was once thought to be a three-day festival has been reduced to a two-day event on May 18th and 19th…as always, stay tuned for more.

[UPDATE  Saturday – 2:05 a.m.] Location uncovered, we called it at 6:45 p.m. on Friday

The Date has not yet been revealed for Skate & Surf ’13, as the final piece of the puzzle is still floating around the ether waiting to be uncovered.

However, the map of this festival’s location that is the poster’s background has become clear…but what it depicts is not.  Is it a map of Bader Air Field in Atlantic City, of the Asbury Park Circle, of PNC Bank Arts Center…or where Speak Into My Good Eye named on Friday at 6:45 p.m. in Freehold, NJ’s IPlay America and Encore Event Center?

You decide…

It’s clear to us and we’re calling it early…Skate & Surf 2013 will be held in Freehold, NJ at iPlay American and the Encore Event Center.

Stay tuned for more.

[UPDATE  Friday – 6:45 p.m.] Internet Scavenger Hunt Tonight


Skate & Surf has announced an internet scavenger hunt through which we will have to work together, and/or horde answers, to uncover the location of this 2013 installment.

Since it’s been confirmed this reincarnation will be in New Jersey, SIMGE’s best guesses include the Asbury Park Boardwalk, Wildwood, NJ, Great Adventure in Jackson, NJ or IPlay America in Freehold, NJ.
