Holy shit, this year’s Van Doren Invitational semi-finals and finals was insane. Every heat was going off with Raven Tershy, Charlie Blair, Curren Caples, Chris Russel, Greyson Fletcher, Tony Trujillo, Ronnie Sandoval, Pedros Barros and many more killing it. You almost felt like a crazy person twisting your head back and forth trying to follow all the guys skating around the park. So much energy and excitement makes this one of the best contest series around. Here’s just a sampling of the carnage that went down.  Can’t wait for the next one. Big thanks to Vans for putting on such a rad contest.  Check for the finals video coming today.
