Not only are these kids getting soaked in the most dirt rocking nasty suspect sewage river running past the front of the Park, they're also enduring freezing temperatures just for some free skate stuff. I saw boys getting the beat down from girls and people diving in for just stickers (whoa). After "mud" started getting thrown around, I got the hell out of there and back to the contest. One website visitor that was in the moat race describes their experience like this:

"I caught a deck that they threw in. I had to dive in the mud and fight off like 5 dudes but I got it. And then I got a deck and a shirt for racing in it. I still don't know if it was worth it though, I had all that crap in my mouth and it's still in my hair after two showers."


Wow, looks like I'm actually standing in the moat with them, huh? That's pretty damn disgusting
Just when you think you're about to win it, you end up falling flat on your face like the kid on the left there
You may know Ashely Harrison here as the Angelina Jolie look-alike. She kicked some ass in the moat wrasslin' match and came up on a deck
Looks like the crowd watching the moat race was bigger than the crowd watching the contest
This kid actually came out pretty clean
Dude, I'm so hyped!!! I'm covered in human feces that I think is mud. Sick!
More moat wrasslin' madness
