BEST TRICK THIS YEAR was on the rail and two opposing hubbas. For 30 minutes there were flying bodies and spinning boards coming from all directions at a shot for the loot.
Frontside bigspin, fakie flip, switch tre flip down the double set, switch tailslide bigspin out on the bank to ledge, switch back tail down the hubba, and switch crooked grinds down the big rail every time.
Ryan Dewitt (Element TM): We built a 10 stair with hubbas and then halfway through the event we pulled the stairs out and turned it into a double set five-flat-five, with a rail down the middle of it.
Ryan: The hubbas went straight into the ground so it was pretty dangerous.

* Someone ollie over the rail and into the brick bank at the spot across from the Tech Center hubbas
The ending point this year was at Hubba
Hideout at midnight.
