Went down to check out the Clash at Clairemont on Saturday. Grind for Life, once again, puts on this awesome event to raise money for those who can’t afford cancer treatment. Many big names showed up along with the local rippers and it seemed like everyone was happy to throw it down to show their support. I got there a little late, but just in time for the vert show. There was a highest 540 contest and Lincoln Ueda took it, hands down.
Lyn-Z spun a handful of 540s, but wasn’t able to stick one. She was tossing up some sizable backside airs though.
The Master of Disaster even got in the mix
Obvious crowd favorite, the Birdman, spins one around
I headed over to the bowl after to try to find some shade and there was already some heavy shredding going down.
Shane Allen ollies over Jake Piasecki’s board, into the deep
Tristan, invert revert
Saosin wrapped up the day with some live music.
There were plenty of memorable moments that I didn’t catch, like Lester’s, Cab’s and Andy Mac’s triples run, Cab’s huge boardslide thru the shallow and the longest stalled invert contest, which Owen Nieder rightfully won. I’m sure video will surface soon.
