That's the winner of the 8 and Under Division, Julluis Jimenez. His mom is a 10 and a half for sure
So, baby Jimenez's mom was awarded Hottest Mom of the Year award. This woman on the left was claiming she's the mom of the mom, making her the grandmom. Wow, I think I'm older than grandma. That's the 8 and Under winners

Here's some of Body's commentary on the mic: Bong rips! Someone get some water for Bong! And finally, Bong hit the rail...
In the bottom photo, that poor kid with only the elbow pad showing has his face smashed up against the angle iron. When we asked him if he was ok after this mess, he tough guyed it but had this look on his face like, "Man, that sucked!"
9 to 12 winners - there's like a foot difference in hieght between these kids. Is that normal?

People who wear shorts a lot generally don't have successful careers in skateboarding, even if they totally rip. I don't make up these facts, I'm just delivering them to you. Some people get it, some don't. Or maybe I'm just retarded and I'm the one who doesn't get it. Oh well. Aaron Collier rips. At the end of the jam, he did switch heel front board perfect on the small rail. This is a regular front boardshorts
