Friday Street Qualifier Results

Here's a few notes on today's Street Qualifiers from the What's Up column on the front page. We're just about to start off on vert now. After that we'll see you at Masquerade for the free video premiere of Think's "iThink."

The first heat just ended. Rippers included Dominique Johnson, Torey Pudwill who stuck a nollie flip back lip in his run, and Antoine Asslein who had a perfect run.

The second heat was amazing. Danny Cerezini pulled the nollie 270 switch back lip in his run, then he hard flipped into the step up so chill like you and me just ollie into it. Derek Simon is no longer an unknown soldier, that dude rips and will probably be in the Semi-Finals. His TAPS are a little out of control, though. Jeffrey Marshall landed a frontside boardslide kickflip out in his run but might be kept out of the Semi-Finals because of a few bails. Rob Welsh was on the sidelines cheering for his boy Matt Miller who ripped and might have a chance at the Semi-Finals. He pulled a perfect nollie nosegrind down the hubba in his run. Tim O'Connor's improv on the mic is keeping everyone entertained, too. So far no fist fights. Sick.

The third heat is just about to wrap up now. Isevoneg Erdna (that's Andre Genovesi spelled switch) killed it with a switch flip 50-50 on the hubba and a perfect switch back tail on the ledge in his run. A few bails might keep him out of the top 16, however. Max Genin from France had a pretty good run which included a perfect back smith on the big rail. He got the Friday Golden Ticket at the Volcom Damn Am a few months ago. I don't think anyone else from this heat is going to make the cut.

There's nothing better than a Tony Tave kickflip
Adam Dyet - backside noseblunt slide on the big flat rail
Windsor James - nollie frontside nosegrind on the big flat rail
Brian Delatorre - nollie 5-0 on the bump to flat bar
Johnny Layton - smith grind on the big round rail
Angel Ramirez - bluntslide down the long hubba
Antoine Asslein - back lip on the big flat rail
Johnny Layton - noseblunt slide on the big flat rail
Derek Simon - frontside 5-0 on the big round rail
I can't remember who this is doing the back lip on the big round rail
Adrian Mallory - Willy grind on the big round rail
Max Genin - back smith on the big flat rail
George Evans skips the step up and throws a big 360 flip to deck checker
Grant Taylor - kickflip
The parking lot is full of tailgate parties and truck motels like this one here
