WILD IN THE PARKS-AMERICAN FORK, UT

Stop #3 of Volcom Stone’s Wild In The Parks tour experienced a mind numbing competitor performance at Greenwood Skate Park in American Fork, UT Saturday June 7, 2014. There must be something in the water here in the great state of Utah.  The area seems to be a breading ground for some of the most intensely technical skateboarding prowess of any area the WITP tour travels. This makes for lots of cheering with a few oohs and awes in between. Riders began to practice at 9am with an underlying game of 1up going on as the registration lines started to form.  Flip in and flip out combinations rattled off early to lay the foundation for the day’s action ahead. Results: 14 & Under Division: 1st: Deng Tear 2nd: Christian Diaz 3rd: Sage Nutter 4th: Austin Lockaby 5th: Parker Johnson 6th: Jonathan Aquino 7th: Damon Draper 15 - 21 Division: 1st: Aiden Chamberlain 2nd: Jake Johnson 3rd: Tanner Oliver 4th: Kwami Adzitso 5th: Trevor Mason 6th: Parker Garrett 7th: Koleman Stoney Open/Am Division: 1st: Brodie Penrod - $250 2nd: AJ Neuenswander - $150 3rd: Kyle Eggen - $100 4th: Chandler Seipert 5th: Ricky Chavez 6th: Gabriel Spotts 7th: Shylio Sweat Rev’d Skater Award: Parker Garrett - $100 Stand Out Ladies: Brooke Whipp and Lina Moeung
