Lord of the Lines

Matix Lord of the Lines went down on Saturday, all in all it was a really amazing event. It was held in Downtown Vancouver on Granville St. About 30 riders showed up.

Crowds were huge, everyone was stoked to see some world class skateboarding.
We got through the the first 3 heats before it started to pour with rain.

Our MC for the day Cyrus kept the party going through the rain by holding a couple redbull drinking contest for a Matix jacket and a pair of jeans. One winner had 7, bad idea.

Cyrus Master of Ceremonies with the family. (thanks again)

Dave and Danny even stuck it out through the rain.

Then the Zombies showed up and it got weird.

While we were waiting for the streets to dry we had the Cliche best trick contest on the flatbar. I did not get one good photo.
While moving a tent I poured about 20 liters of water on my head and my camera so it went in to the van to dry out.

While it was drying we held a highest ollie contest for $50 big ones.

Alien won, it was his birthday. He made it over 7 maybe 8 boards stacked old school.

The street finally dried up and the judges were back to work. Thanks again to Alex from Underworld and Jon and Nelson from the Supra warehouse.

Stever was a judge but he was so baked he could not see the manny pad at the end of the course. He left to go pick something up, and never came back.
Despite the rain and the zombies we finally made it to the final round.

Stacey Gabriel, Dustin Montie, Spencer Hamilton, Kevin Wu, and Desmond (sorry Desmond I don"t know your last name). Everyone killed it, but there was a winner.

Dustin Montie Runner-up - One Hundred Clams

Spencer Hamilton ended up taking home $300 smackers with the best line of:
Manuel pad - FS 180 to switch nose manny FS 180 out.
Flat Bar - Nollie Bigspin to FS lipslide
Ledge - Fakie 5.0.

Thanks to everyone who made it out to the event! Especially Cyrus and Alex, could not have done it with out you!

I have a few sequences coming and I'm sure there will be more photos worth posting.
So check back.
