skatedeluxe Best Trick Contest

Besides the regular contest for male and female riders, there have been two best trick contests. The first on Saturday sponsored by skatedeluxe and the second on Sunday in the name of Nike SB. All riders had two days to get used to the park setup until it was time to pull off the best trick at the skatedeluxe „Out of Focus section“. Downrail, ledge and London Gap offered a lot of possibilities and the competitors know how to make use of them. In the end, the Brazilian Vinicius Santos owned the ledge and took the first place.
