The International Skateboarding Open wrapped up here in Nanjing, China with finals in the bowl and street for men and women. Leticia Bufoni snagged first place in women’s street, French tranny wizard Vincent Matheron won the men’s bowl, and Jake Ilardi won men’s street with the most ridiculous run we’ve ever seen: Bigspin flip indy and a 540 on the big quarterpipe, then a bigspin flip frontside boardslide down the eight-stair rail--all in the same line! He barely nudged Ivan Monteiro out of the top spot (who also had an insane flawless run) with that run. Big congrats to all the winners.
