Here's some things I remember about this long day today:

There were 7 year old kids doing backside disasters. I didn't know kids that were 7 could talk yet.

Bong rips! Is Bong Gause another Nyjah? That might happen. I remember Nyjah being about that good when he was that young when I first met him at a Damn Am contest a few years ago. Bong got first in the new 8 and Under Division.

Gavin Bishop gets the youngest kid with a shook nightie/ghetto gown award.

Snack bar represent. Dave Cruz came out swinging like Bastien with a cab flip over the hip, but he should have sat down after that because it was all downhill from there.

Porn star names in the contest: Max Peeters, Chad Butts, Matt Seeman, Malcom Seaman. Matt Seeman switch frontside rocked the bank to wall. I don't think any porn stars can do that.

Chris Jata has the most butters nollie inward heels over the hip but that didn't work out in his run.

There seemed to be fewer TAPS flying around the course. Nice.

Wade Collins gets the best dressed award. The Stereo Putter Hat combined with a nice button up - ladies, get in line.

Sorry about the mom that got a board to the head in the product toss.

Kenny Liszewski is young as hell (12) and ripping. He got fifth in the 16 and up and has won a few of our contests here in the past. TM's, put him on your flow team now before he gets deals with all your competitors in the next couple years. I've never skated street with him, but he's getting good really fast from what I can tell at the skateparks we see him at.

I didn't see any of Jimmy Desimone's runs, but the judges sheets all had "perfect runs" written all over them with scores in the high 90's. Jimmy gets a free trip to Woodward for getting first in the 13 to 15 Division.

Matt Giles was spotted getting getting a massage from a nice young lady in the crowd in between runs. It must have helped because he won Sponsored.
