Surf Expo January 2005 Saturday
Words and Photos by Rob Meronek

Carlos De Andrade won the Volcom Pro Mini-Ramp jam yesterday. Here's some stuff he did in his runs: double flip fakie (what?!), perfect 360 flips to fakie, nollie backside 360 big spins to fake, backside ollies to fakie over three sheets, nollie heel flip backside 360s to fakie. Definitely deserving of the mini ramp champ title.

Full results are right here.

Check out video footage of Carlos De Andrade's run courtesy of BC over at SCUTV. It's a 4mb Quicktime video.

I was going to Photo Shop a cross behind Judd Heald here since he's in the crucify position on this smith grind, but it seems religous people don't have too much of a sense of humor like that
