Dash Point Pro/Am (wrap up)(results)

Thanks to everyone for coming out to the Dash Point Pro/Am last Saturday. The event opened with cloudy skies that quickly gave way to blue sky's and temperatures in the mid 70's. Flatland skimboarders from Washington, California, Oregon, BC, Vancouver Island, Poland, and Utah were out in force and shredding all day. The comp featured some really fun obstacles built by the experienced hands of Tim Mackey, Isaac Thomas, and Bryce Hermansen.

The U-16 Division started the day off with flatland and then moving onto a jump and up flat session. Some impressive tricks were thrown down by the competitors including Oliver (pictured above)

The Am and Pro Divisions took the water after the Ams. Starting out with a flatland heat with no features. Just about every trick in the book got landed during these heats including 540 shuvs, No-comply biggerspins and even a 360 bigspin.


Next the guys moved a up flat up flat into the stream side by side with a A-Frame rail. Some creative maneuvers went down on both set ups including Logan Davidson gapping over the final flat section with a nice 3-shuv.

The final set up was a three parter...a dragon tail on the right, a gap to down in the center, and a mellow A-frame on the left.


At the end of the second rail heat local favorite Emile Panerio was taken out of the comp with a rolled ankle.

The pro men battled it out with a multitude of big airs and shuv variations over the stair set.

Logan Davidson had the last hit of the comp and managed to go down pretty hard over the gap, dislocating his finger in the process. His finger was quickly snapped back into place and is now fully functional again.
