Zion Wright did this backside overcrook in qualifiers, then made about a million other tricks in the finals to take first place in the sponsored division finals. We're glad that nasty injury isn't having any effects on you, Zion! Now get your pops Mustafa back to the park next time.

This frontside feeble grind that Julian Lewis did across the bank-to-bank rail was really tweaked out. Julian landed some super hard tricks during practice, but couldn't put it together during his jam. Next time, Julian.

Back To School Bash 2014 Recap

I can remember when doing a kickflip backside lipslide during your run or jam meant that you were probably going to win the sponsored division at the park. It's crazy that even if you do, like Chris Roque did here in his jam, you end up in 3rd place in the 16 and up division. Still really awesome these days though, because that's how much skateboarding has progressed over the years, and it'll only keep getting gnarlier in the future.

Wesley Box easily took first place in the 9 to 12 division by landing tricks in his jam like this smooth pressure flip down the stairs. Making Nate Sherwood proud at every contest, Wes. For real though, you annihilated it.
