Braydon Szafranski – Braydon subbed for Andrew and was working on a backside nosegrind to no avail.
Jon Goeman – Super-smooth Birdhouse am, but I can’t remember what he landed.
Rick McCrank – McCrank was one of the few that really had this obstacle dialed. He proved it with a tailslide across the entire thing, which earned him second place. Rick was trying bs nosegrinds, too, but once again, I don’t think that he landed it.
Matt Bennett – Matt had a pretty creative line – he ollied up the Totter and was doing big spins on the platform of it.
Angel Ramirez – Angel was trying backside lipslides, but I don’t think he pulled it.
Sheldon Meleshinski – Keegan Sauder was supposed to skate this Jam, but he opted out. The Chief looked out into the crowd and spotted one of his ams and said, “Sheldon, come on, you’re skating this.” Sheldon shrugged his shoulders and competed like a champ.
Daewon Song – Everyone was talking about what Daewon was going to do on this thing, but then he ended up bailing and not even skating the Jam.
Tosh Townend – Tosh was the only skater to ride switch on this obstacle. He did a switch flip up it and tried a fakie flip off, but when the Totter landed it knocked him off balance turning his fakie flip into a fakie flop.
