|Night in Hell: Results|
Night in Hell results
This past weekend Stratton Mountain, VT witnessethed one hell of a ghoulsmashing good time. Two main events were held, Best Trick street and Best Trick tranny, with a special (and deadly) coffin box built just for the event. The night started out with the best trick street, consisting of a pretty rugged gap out to the coffin box, which served as a manny pad, a landing, and a grind-box all in one. Soon the box snapped at the middle from so many people landing on it, but that didn't stop everyone from flipping it up on its side, and turning it into one hell of a gap out to flat down box that was substantially high off the ground. Ryan Gagner was able to grill out a tough gap to lipslide on the coffin, locking himself down a third place finish. Brothers Dave and Steve mull managed to pul in first and second, with Steve getting second for his gap out to overcrook on the box, and Dave pulling a kickflip the gap to 5-0 the down ledge literally at the buzzer to solidify first place.
From there it was on to the Coffin box extension on the mini ramp. With the total heigh of the setup reaching just under 11ft, and the box being anything but orthodox, the fact that anyone managed to pull ANYTHING on it was impressive in and of itself. A Vermont skater through and through, Jerry Tucker dropped bombs all night on the extension, and came out in third place for his miller flip on the coffin. Massachusetts ripper Nate Jackson made the long haul up for the Night in Hell, and had the best consistency out of anyone, and overall it was his back lip on the top of the coffin that brought in his second place finish. Dave Mull managed to snag a blunt to fakie off the top of the coffin, which was nothing short of epic. Dave managed to grab first place for both the street and tranny best trick events, and believe us it wasn't an act of favoritism, he ripped the events to pieces, as did everyone else who participated.
For the youngins we threw a game of S.K.A.T.E. which ended up being quite the lengthy game. After the dust settled Jake Gaudet ended up in first, with Kyle LaFlamme and Zach Bean pulling in second and third place.
Great turnout overall for the event, we had over 80 skaters total and 150 people in attendance. Look for more events coming soon from Vermont Skateboards!
