Ronnie signs an inflatable bovine!
Creager and Ron Allen get psyched!
Vancouver is a rad city, to say the least, and Slam City Jam is always a good excuse to get there. Cool city, a full weekend of skateboarding and partying, and some of the best looking girls I have ever seen. I swear Vancouver breeds hot as hell chicks. Just go look on Myspace or something. Search Vancouver. You'll see what I mean.
But back to the contest. Ronnie Creager and Ryan Sheckler made the trek to Slam and both killed it. Ryan was automatically qualified since he was a past winner, and Ronnie ended up qualifying first place in his heat.
The skate plaza in Vancouver is sick!
Cool and casual, he rifled off switch hardflips, fakie flips, and switch flips down the double set. He was the only dude with the balls and the originality to throw down flatground tricks during his run; tailslide up the hubbs, kickflips over the pyramid and on and on. Ronnie doesn't stop and skated more than anyone in the place. Even when he wasn't on the course he was crusing makeshift manny pads and ledges off to the side. So, when all was said and done, Ronnie ended up fourth overall.
HOWEVER, Ronnie won the manual contest with ease. trick after trick after trick--there's just too many to name. Flip in flip out. He's the manual master. Congrats Ronnie!
Nick holds down the RV. If you ever see it, say hi to him.
As for Ryan, front feebles, back smiths on the rails. Kickflip crooks and back tails up the hubba--all while wearing his new pro model, which you kiddies will see very very soon. He took a well-deserved third.
etnies gal Lauren Perkins took third in Women's street while her mom and sister shopped around town. She's takin' charge lately.
The etnies RV was in the house, we skated the Street Plaza, we partied hard and now we are headed to ASR for more tomfoolery. Jealous?
Congrats on your wins boys and girl, hope you enjoy those New Era hat trophies Slam gave you.
In case you missed it, check the Slam City footy and photo galleries!
Vancouver cuties in smoky clubs = fun
Abandoned, blown out Artos on the side of the street course.
Sheckler gets mobbed by the ladies a lot. So I kinda just stand near him hoping to get some of the overflow.
Ronnie was sitting by the vert ramp and got a shot to the leg from Bob Burnquist's runaway board. This was about 15 minutes before the street finals. He was bummed but still got fourth!
Perks models her dope trophy.
