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.

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.
