Radness from up north.
Lance is the best.
Rumor is that California will be seeing some of these dudes in the near future…

We made the trek up to San Jose this past weekend for the 14th Annual Tim Brauch Memorial Contest at Lake Cunningham. Stoked to see everyone up there and witness some insane shredding going down. Was denied a photo pass, so had to work with what I could.
Girls started off the day, but unfortunately I missed most of the heats. From what I saw, they were killing it! Lizzie Armanto, Julz and Allysha Bergado were at the top, and rightfully so.
A whole slew of ams were there and they were hungry. The level of skating in these Am heats was pretty impressive. Tiny kids spinning 5s, gnarly collisions and straight out ripping. Tristan Rennie, Griffin Chase and Bobo Kuamoo ended up in the top spots.
Masters… there is a reason they have that title and it’s pretty apparent when they start rolling.
Mark Partain. So stoked to get to see him skating. Pure style.
Cab board sliding into first place.
Pros ended up with 2 final heats with 2 Badlanders on top. Great to see Michael Brookman stay on and take it to first place.
Another great contest in the books. There was so much going, it’s hard to be everywhere at once. Thanks to everyone that makes it happen year after year.
Photos from the rest of the trip coming soon.
