The casual one-hour Best Trick jam session at the Claymore Challenge quickly turned into a non-stop banger throw down with guys pulling massive front flip variations, huge supermans, triple tailwhips, and pretty much every other know trick in the book. It was all high fives and smiles as the best guys in slopestyle fed off one another during one of the most fun hours of the week.
At the end of the session it was Yannick Granieri who took home the win and a cool $1,000 courtesy of Teva for his perfect flip double whip on the Red Bull Freebird. Local boys Mike Kent and Chad Deluca threw down hard, giving the crowd exactly what they came for with big ‘ol supermans and 360 flip attempts, prompting the crowd to get loud and get wild.
