The trick that best summed up the contest, Reynolds with the Kickflip Lip to seal the win.
The consistancy of Reynolds down the stairs was insane, Variel Heelflips were landed almost every heat.
Ronnie Creager was a walk on to this contest, and with tricks like this Switch Hardflip, it will most likely get him invited to upcoming events.
Creager didn't hesistate to skate all parts of the park, putting down this Front Lipslide before killing the ledges and manual pad.
Manny Santiago has been killing the contests lately. This Nosegrind 180 was done after embarressing the Gold Rail.
Manny Santiago has such a good Impossible, always wrapped around the foot.
Lutzka coming through big with the Frontside Flip that could clear two trash cans.
Tom Asta was able to skate the Gold Rail like a flat bar all weekend, making Back Smiths effortless and clean.
The Bobby Worrest Fan Club kept everyone entertained from the stands all weekend, and Bobby rewarded them with treasures of Back Smiths and quick tricks on every obstacle.
Kickflip 50-50 are warm up for Figgy, or the beginning of a line ending in him going big over the trash can.
Tom Asta could Kickflip Nosegrind in his sleep, in fact I would question if he hadn't already.
It was a bummer to see Collin Provost dislocate his shoulder, tricks like this channel Ollie definitely would have put him in higher standing. Was good to see him walk off of the course alright.
The way that Vincent Alvarez can just do tricks having no clear idea of what he is going to do next is amazing, I doubt he even realized he was doing a Switch Smith at Mach 5.
Local favorite Jack Curtain did DC proud, Fakie Ollie 50-50 is no laughing matter in the Gold Rail.
Ryan DeCenzo had a tweaked ankle, but you would have never known it from this Frontside Tailslide.
