Paul Rodriguez pulled off his first major contest win since 2009 with two flawless runs in the Street finals to get the gold. Switch front blunt on the main rail and the last switch 360 flip on the stairs proved too much for anyone to match. Ryan Sheckler came in a close second taking full advantage on every inch of the course. Finding himself in unfamiliar territory, Nyjah just couldn’t put that final insane run together, but he did set the bar high earlier on in the final.
