Kerley Wins Gold at X Games MN

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

xgamesepsChad Kerley has done it again. This past weekend Chad had two flawless runs in the X Games Street BMX contest to take the top spot. Down to the wire, Chad’s last run one upped his previous tech mastery and it came down to the only man who was capable of removing Chad from the top spot – Garrett Reynolds (9 time Gold medal winner). Garrett had an amazing run but a late bauble led to his falling on the next trick giving CK the guaranteed win. In a complete display of sportsmanship, Chad immediately went to hug his idol and Garrett returned in helping Chad celebrate his second gold.

So hyped for you CK! Congrats to you and Garrett and to our friend Devon Smilie for their silver and bronze medals. All the riders were amazing to watch.

In skateboard park, Keegan Palmer made a go at his first pro X Games and wowed the crowd with his bag of tricks. Unfortunately he didn’t make a complete run but he definitely won the fans over with the maturity of his skill level given he was the youngest competitor in the field. Great job KP!!!

Keegan Palmer Wins Bowl-A-Rama in Bondi

Monday, February 19th, 2018

n6JVjj4Z_400x400Keegan Palmer is the first person to win the amateur contest at Bowl-A-Rama and then win the pro division in the next year. Taking the crown back for Australia (it has been 13 years since an Aussie won the contest), Keegan dominated the entire weekend placing first in qualifiers, first in semis and then taking the top title with a decisive first in the finals. Keegan used an array of back to back to back (and so on and so on) tricks to convince the judges that his lines were the most tech and diverse. 

Amazing work Keegan. Can’t wait to see you skate the rest of contest season including the upcoming Mano A Mano, Air + Style and Vans Park Series.
