enjoi came through the Baltimore stop on the Zumiez Couch Tour in true Panda form, with Cairo Foster casually killing it, Louie Barletta handling the tranny (no pun intended), Jose Rojo smoother than ever, Wieger Van Wageningen inward heelflipping to noseslide on the bump to ledge while Nestor Judkins and Clark Hassler were putting togeher line after line and steadily cruising around the course. Ben Raemers was hurt and couldn’t skate but he made all the girls smile, as he always does, and signed some autographs. Check out the video from the demo.
Zumiez Best Foot Forward Am Contest Series Results:
1. Ian Smith
2. Antonio Massey
3. Chris Mentlik
It was good to be back in Baltimore for the second year with plenty of rippers skating the Zumiez street course. Chris Mentlik took third place this year with some tech tricks. His nollie backside flip down the stairs, nollie cab to lipslide down the rail and kickflip back nosegrind on the hubba were some of the tricks he landed in the finals. Antonio Massey was killing it all day and ended up placing second. He was spinning 270 into every trick on the rail including frontside and backside 270 lipslides and cab back lip. He also killed the plank with a half cab crook, backside 180 fakie 5050 and a nollie noseslide. Ian Smith destroyed the course all the way to first place. He was shredding every obstacle in his path. Some highlights include big airs to fakie on the quarter, frontside bluntslide to fakie on the plank; and on the stairs he nailed a switch varial heel, fakie flip and sealed the deal with the switch bigspin heel. Daniel Corrigan was skating full speed and landing some tricks we hadn’t seen on the course so far this year, so he earned the New Era Originator of the Day Award.
