In the first of the Summer’s four Best Trick Contests at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest, Mike Szymborski took home top honors along with a couple pairs of shoes and some free etnies gear. The contest was held on the center box in the street course, which meant that any tricks on the euro gaps, the flat bar, the picnic table, or the center hubbas, ledges, and gaps were fair game. Mike earned first place with a frontside bluntside transfer on the flat bar and a pop-shove it lipslide on the flat bar.
Coming in second was Nick Rivera, with a kickflip over the 12 foot gap, a proper nosegrind on the flatbar and more. Third place was taken by local ripper Don Juan, with a heavy bag of tricks, and an early-grab 360 off the euro gap that the judges sweated. Jordan Small and Knoxx Fuller took fourth and fifth with long lists of tricks. The next in this series of Best Trick Contests come on Thursday, June 23rd, when the Flow Course becomes the target. In August there will be two more Best Trick Contests, one on the stairs, and one on the hubbas and rails. Stay tuned to etnies.com for more information.
