TSO Studios announces the release of their video based instructional app TSO Skate featuring skateboarding icon Paul Rodriguez. Fresh off of his win at the Dew Tour Portland Invitational and heading in to this weekends Street League Championship, Rodriguez said, Im hyped to be partnered with TSO on something that is going to revolutionize the way kids learn to skate. I learned by watching a ton of skate videos in my living room so the idea of being able to have an app where you can watch tricks at any time and any spot really hit home for me.”
TSO Skate, part of TSOs family of action sports apps presented by long time ESPN host Sal Masekela, is the most comprehensive instructional app on the market and includes video and written instruction from Paul himself on over 30 tricks that are broken up into beginner, intermediate, and advanced sets. Every video was shot exclusively for TSO and includes three angles: one that plays at full speed, a second that plays in slow motion with on screen text tips, and a third that plays in super slow motion.
Using their proprietary 5 Light Progression System with integrated video, TSO Skate helps skaters build the proper foundation needed to master tricks in the same order that Paul learned them. All pros have their own techniques and tips for landing tricks and the app will give users unprecedented mobile access to instruction from one of the biggest names in skateboarding.
An avid participant in action sports himself, Masekela said, “Our goal is simple – help kids progress at a faster rate by making sure they have the fundamentals on lock before they start trying to stomp more advanced tricks.
The app also features an In App Store where in the coming months users will be able to purchase additional Pro Sets and video parts from Paul and other top skaters.
Learn tricks from P Rod. Anywhere. Anytime.
TSO Skate is available for $ 4.99 for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad at the iTunes App Store.
