The second of four Best Trick Contests was held on Thursday, June 23, at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest. This time, it was on the flow course.
Local ripper and park employee Tyler Mumma skated confidently and came out on top with Texas Plants over the vert-to-deck hip, tailslides and frontside airs on the vert wall, ollies over the spine, and a frontside boneless one shuffle, as well as a truly vintage 1980’s style frontside blunt.
Second place belonged to Brad Coleman, who boosted frontside airs on the vert wall, lein to tails, Miller flips, and a nice crail tap. Brad also managed to find the fastest, smoothest lines of the day.
Dustin Sheesley came in third with mellow style prevailing over 5-0s to fakie and alley oop airs over the hip. Local boy Paco and youngun’ Andrew Miller came in fourth and fifth and had lots of fun, along with the 22 contestants who skated.
There will be two more Best Trick contests in August, one on the stairs, and one on the hubbas and rails. Start training and stay tuned for more information.
