The Ultimate Skateboarder 1 (TUS 1) was a global Online Freestyle Flatground Skateboarding Contest held from July 1st to August 17th. It was first announced to previous participants of The World Freestyle Round-Up by Hippie Mike on June 27, 2017. It was open to anyone, of any age, worldwide. 36 contestants from 15 countries competed in the event.

To enter, contestants submitted a 1 min+ highlight video. The videos were then judged in three stages based on creativity, aesthetic style and technical difficulty.[2]

  • Round 1 consisted of online audience popularity voting to determine the top 20 qualifiers. This stage took place from July 1st to August 8th, 2017. It was originally scheduled to go from July 1st to July 31st, but was extended for another week.
  • Round 2 used Peer Voting to decide the top 10 finalists. This ran from August 9th to August 14th.
  • Round 3 was scored by an expert panel of judges consisting of Chris Haslam, Hippie Mike, Jay Mandarino, Kevin Harris, Kyle Dion, Per Welinder and Sean Mortimer. This took place from August 15th to the 16th.

The winner and top 10 official standings were announced on August 17th, 2017, with Mike Osterman taking 1st place.[3]
