Josh Stewart's Footage

People came in hot right off the bat with ollies and kickflips and this frontside flip here. Then it was kind of a lull for a while where it almost looked like not much was going to go down because no one was making anything.

Note for the next event: director's chairs don't work for the big dudes.

I heard Ishod saying he's not a flat gap type of guy. He bowed out of this one.

Not sure if this dude ever made this hardflip. He later switched to trying a frontside 360 the entire time. He came close a few times, but it never happened.
Skater Profile: Who Dat?
Man, I should have taken notes. There was so much going on I can't remember names or even if this switch flip was made. I saw him come real close several times, though.
Skater Profile: Who Dat?
This dude had a crazy looking kickflip over it.

About half of the line-up ready for a clipping.
CJ Tambornino started with a switch frontside flip over it.

I heard plenty of people in the crowd afterwards talking about how good it was. Hopefully you were there.
The peanut gallery cheering section was high energy.
Dylan Perry came away with a kickflip.

Damn, forgot this dude's name that 360 flipped it.

Chris Blake frontside heelflipped it.

Dane Vaughn switch heelflipped it.

More madness from the crowd, including Justin Brock judging and Clarence mean muggin'.
Matt Fink, ripping as usual, this time with a switch frontside heelflip.
