RPRT is not only excited to add another female athlete to the roster, but is super stoked to be adding its first female surfer. Tia will be a force to be reckoned with over the next few years as she chases a berth on the world tour with hopes of some day being world champion.

Louie Lopez led the pack from the start of the contest qualifying first and holding that lead throughout the contest showing why he was just turned pro by Flip. Curren Caples hit streetstyle course with huge airs and major style only to lose to last year’s winner, Ryan Sheckler, by .25 of a point. Curren also skated in street and got 8th overall beating a ton of street veterans at their own game.

In BMX, Chad Kerley was the most buzzed about name with a second place win in street behind Garrett Reynolds and a 1st place win in streetstyle. Both winning runs came in the clutch and Chad showed the world why he is the best new young pro in his sport. Also ripping in street was Jeremiah Smith who was in both street (9th) and streetstyle (7th) finals. Brian Kachinsky rode hard and won hearts in street as well.

Final RPRT medal count: Gold (2), Silver (2).
