Thanks to all the parents here with their kids. I don't think knee holes in the jeans has made a showing in skateboarding yet, right? I hope no one ushers these in.
Jorge JP Garcia is kickflipping his way to 1st in the 8 and Under.
Darius Norton is growing into his style. Check that back foot. Grown man status is right around the corner.
Xander Keel's only 8 and he's got an ollie like that already? They grow up so fast both on and off the skateboard.
Forgot a name here, but he's got a nice fakie ollie to flat.
Who dat? Back lip.
Coco Torres - lipslide.
Harrison Mazzarella - front board.
Max Barten - lipslide.
Christopher Boyer - tailslide.
Gino Girola - crooked grind.
Crash and Schaefer are sweating it out over the grill for you.
Free burgers are worth the line.

The bump to flat is a popular one. That's Ish kickflipping it.

We're about to have the All Ages End of Year Awards later, but we had to catch Laura early before she left. She got the "Go Win X Games Women" Award. She could probably win it out there. Are they still giving out like 25 grand for 1st there?
