I showed up just in time for the tranny obstacle, got a nice seat on top of the Adio bus, someone threw me a frosty Tecate and I got to snappin’. The jams are seriously nuts--these shops kids are hungry! Josh Mattson from Santa Cruz won the tranny. He’s real good, I remember him from the Tim Brauch contest a couple years ago.
Last came the most anticipated obstacle of the day--the handrail. Former winner Marquis Preston was handling gnarly stuff as was Chris Troy--always a contender. But no one could fade Wes Kremer. Switch frontside lipslide, switch frontside nosegrind, switch frontside nosebluntslide, and switch kickflip to switch boardslide all in a half hour. Sk8mafia, kids.
So the overall winner was ZJ, they got 5 Gs, second place was Pharmacy, and Val Surf came in third. Cheers to Automatic for knowing how to put on a fun contest.
