Portland always shows us a great time, so we were stoked for the 3rd annual contest at Ed! Always excited to be in the Pacific Northwest in early summer, we were ready to have another great contest event.
We were all happy to see familiar faces from our 2017 & 2018 contests, but it was also great to have new talent out at the park, ripping. A great turnout overall, Ed Benedict Skatepark was packed with skaters, spectators, and everyone in between.
Monster Energy came out and served up the liquid stoke, while we also had waters for the skaters. Sizzle Pie donated several pizzas to the event, and Portland Parks & Recreation helped a huge amount with staffing and judging.
Thanks to our awesome judging staff:
We had plenty of stuff to give away from Nike SB, Real Skateboards, RVCA, Capture Skateboards, Thunder Trucks, and much more.
As usual, we hosted Student and Non-student Divisions. We had our Youth Division again this year too!
...and the results:
1st - Thomas
2nd - Elliott
3rd - Max
1st - Tameron Eaglehorse
2nd - Alex Lobasyuk
3rd - Jesse Nations
1st - Brendan Howe
2nd - Joshua Sanchez
3rd - Presley Dunwoody
We hope you enjoy our “rough cut” inspired video edit that highlights everyone’s best tricks from the day!!
