The Goofies have retained the GvR crown by winning etnies’ thrid annual Goofy versus Regular contest last weekend in Lake Forest, California. Held at the etnies skatepark right under the Sole Technology headquarters, the Goofies held on to their title as the top stance of skateboarding. Jereme Rogers took home ten grand and the first place trophy and Nyjah Huston and Ryan Sheckler were awarded the MVP for their respective Regular and Goofy teams.
And if three days of amazing skating wasn’t enough, etnies surprised contestants and VIP attendees with a Beastie Boys concert right on the Sole Tech parking lot the night before the finals. With top name pros such as Andrew Reynolds, Bryan Herman, Chris Cole, and Ronnie Creager in attendance the whole weekend, the kids went nuts and the skating never lost a beat!
