Finalists came out swinging as dudes like Timmy Reyes, Drake Flores and Emilio Sifuentez stuck to the handrail section and killed life for all to watch. The ripper known as Ben Johnson tore around the course and blunt fakie'd the vert wall with ease. Roman Carillo took care of business and Rudy Zamora had his back all the way into the finals.
The undisputed man of the hour was Tommy Wilkenson. Snapping nollie boardslides, nollie feeble grinds and nollie back lips down the rail was just scratching the surface for this San Antonio native.
When the heat rose to a flamboyant 105, The finals broke off into madness that would be unmatched even by a flamethrower. Coming in hot with the Zumiez Destroyer Award was Roman Carillo.
Drake Flores showed mad promise but his flame wasn't bright enough to burn past
Emilio Sifuentez who not only came in third, but killed the Transworld Best Trick Contest with a bigflip to front board fakie down the handrail.
Rudy Zamora blazed into second place with the authority of a thousand generals.
No surprise to anyone's eyes was today's first place contender. Tommy Wilkenson killed it all day. Skating with consistency and power, Tommy will surely be one of the main contenders when the finals roll around in Minnesota.
When the Zero skateboard team took to the course, you know the hammers are about to drop in a big way. All the rippers were out today in full force. During this Zero demo, The Chief, Jamie Thomas, came out and introduced three new soldiers to the Zero Army. Ed duff, who has been chomping on the handrails of southern California in recent months, Kyle Fredricks, all the way from the Sunshine State, Chris Coogan, and Jonathan Pierce were all in full-effect and super psyched to be sharing the course with the likes of James Brockman and John Rattray.
Highlights of the demo include doubles runs by The Chief and Tom Karangelov busting simultaneous 180 to fakie 50-50s down the hubba. Garett Hill shared the stage with the Chief with a bluntslide, backed up by the ever-impressive ollie impossible to frontside 50-50.
Superstar Chris Cole was in the house and out to impress with a frontside allie-oop 270 to fakie backside nosegrind. (if that makes any sense). Other notable pros were in the house including the Australian powerhouse Dane Burman, Canada's own Jamie Tancanoway and Keegan Sauder.
Ben Hatchell was a true pleasure to watch. The vertical velocity of this transitional trooper was unmatched. Ben Hatchell blazed the course with the nonchalance of a cucumber while ripping the vert wall a new posterior. Blunt kickflip to fakie was the heavy-hitting crowd pleaser matched up with a backside nosepick and a wallie to slappy blunt down the bank ramp. Ben Hatchell added to the eagerness of fans salivating for more. Lord knows what to expect from this mctwisting madman's upcoming video part in the much anticipated "Cold War" video due later this year.
As the embers of gnar tried to cool, the Zero team retired to the autograph booth for a good session of signing and hi-fives. As DayTrader took to the Zumiez stage, the concertgoers slammed and bopped to the rock and roll sounds pummeling out of DayTrader's guitars.
Heaving and flowing into this riotous pandamonium, the crowd was subject to an onslaught of rocking' good times by The Wonder Years. The Wonder Years killed it with songs off their new album "Suberbia." They made waves with the Couch Touring crowd and played into the dusklight as only they could.
With this much fun and nastiness, we can only imagine what madness is to come with the Zumiez Couch Tour gearing up for it's East Coast pillaging. Jump on the couch and ride it into the sunset.
