Tyson’s three trick submission was nearly flawless; starting out with tech, he put down a backside smith back 360 kick flip out on a picnic table. For gap, he went up an over the rail on a 9-set with an ally-oop front heel and for rail he finished strong with a feeble big flip out.
Gavin’s submission led the competition from start to finish, being both the fan and judge’s favorite. Gavin’s run started out strong with a huge backside air and never let up, also a barrage of both lip and air tricks including; frontside boardslide, Madonna disaster, baskside judo 360, backside 540 and even a crazy fronside invert 360 that looked nothing like a traditional Miller flip.
