The event took place on Saturday Sept. 16th at Canyon High School across the street from Beach Bums Boardshops in Anaheim Hills. The day started off with an amateur game of S.K.A.T.E. sponsored by éS Shoes, followed by a one hour rail jam with a $10,000 purse for the top 3 winners. Amongst free snow cones from Volcom, and Polaroid pictures at the Nixon booth, Beach Bums had top professional skaters from Billy Marks to Braydon Szafranski entered in the contest.
The crew at 4 Down did it again by customizing the Lincoln Towncar to perfection with two flatbars and a bench on the hood. Billy Marks jumped off to a early lead landing a kickflip front board, and a nollie front board. As the event was coming to a close, it looked like we had a definite winner. Then out of nowhere Justin Brock landed a front blunt big spin to take it home with two minutes left turning the event upside down. As time ran up judges Oliver Flores, John Francis, and Scuba Steve ( éS ) came to a final tally...
First Place, $7,500, Justin Brock
Second Place, $2,000, Billy Marks
Third Place, $500, Malcom Watson
