Pfanner was a wrecking ball all weekend. KF over the H.

He was the first to gap from the top stage into the bank. Luis later did it to fakie and Clint Walker gapped to front board on that rail on the right. Yowza!

It was also about 100 degrees. Cole barfs between heats.

Burnout: Kings of Queens
Dustin, however, kept it cool, as is his style.

Burnout: Kings of Queens
Here's the controversial portion of the weekend - namely Shane O'Neill's awesome performance, including this switch kf back lip. Somehow, he didn't make the cut. Sorry, dude.

Burnout: Kings of Queens
Best Trick was on the manual pad, ledge thing. Media hunkers down behind the flat bar.

You can ask the ams to do anything. They're real agreeable. Hatchell, hand plant.

Burnout: Kings of Queens
Luis got the eye of the tiger to pull that 180 into the bank.

Burnout: Kings of Queens
The Queens crowd (his hometown) really got behind him. I think he got $1000 too.

Burnout: Kings of Queens
The am winners. Felipe won and Ishod was fucking it up. Check the videos.

Ishod gets the Erica treatment. He's big time.
