In 2009, skateboard brand DVS Shoe Company hosted a professional game of S.K.A.T.E. at the Berrics. The competition, titled "Battle at the Berrics" pitting 32 skaters against each other in bracket-style S.K.A.T.E. tournament. The competitors included Steve Berra, Eric Koston, Rob Dyrdek, Andrew Reynolds, Mike Carroll, Marc Johnson, Erik Ellington, James White, PJ Ladd, and Sean Malto, among others. Mike Mo Capaldi beat Benny Fairfax to win, with Billy Marks finishing third. Mike Mo was awarded a $10,000 prize, courtesy of DVS Shoe Company. While the series proved largely popular with skateboarders, some lament its homogenizing effect on casual games of S.K.A.T.E. that now often conform to "Berrics Rules"
