The longest carve session went down well with the help of “sticker judges” John H and Sam “the Medic”.
Riders had to carve over the two marker stickers in eliminating rounds. A few skaters tuned-in to pumping and weaving their way over the stickers with ease no matter how far we spread them out.
The final was between Da Moog, Oakley and last years winner, Lee T. Two attempts by each rider left Lee Tilbury as the clear winner once again!

Well, sort of ?….
