Trying to find the actual skateboarding I ran into masterlensman, Mike Blabac, just outside Radio Checkout and the Podium Club.


Burnout: eXcitement
And then finally .... Behold!!!


Burnout: eXcitement
After much shucking and jiving, further weaseling into the shaded fancy area. Legends, everywhere.


Burnout: eXcitement
Wait for it ...
Burnout: eXcitement
Dang!


Burnout: eXcitement
The Steadicam operator was almost more impressive than the skating.


Burnout: eXcitement
Jaws, kicky melon into the abyss.


Burnout: eXcitement
Ga-gaghhh!


Burnout: eXcitement
Wait? There's a shirt for it?!!


Burnout: eXcitement
Huggin' it out in the finals.


Burnout: eXcitement
P-Rod got the biggest hug. Nice job, Paul.


Burnout: eXcitement
Someday even this outfit will appear foolish.


Burnout: eXcitement
Later, backstage with the Real Street contingency.


Burnout: eXcitement
Baby and Sal carboloading between takes.


Burnout: eXcitement
Jaws' sitting style provides valuable insight into his ability to take those gigantic drops, right?


Burnout: eXcitement
'What?!'


Burnout: eXcitement

Burnout: eXcitement
Talkin' it out.


Burnout: eXcitement
The producer.


Burnout: eXcitement
And we're live.


Burnout: eXcitement
My media competition answers the tough questions. Worthy fuckin' adversaries.


Burnout: eXcitement
The top three.


Burnout: eXcitement

Sinclair: 'Hey Mike. You wanna give Nyjah his first-place medal?'

Me: 'Like, put a necklace around his neck on TV?'

Sinclair: 'Yeah.'

Me: 'I don't see as I have a choice!!!'


Burnout: eXcitement

Burnout: eXcitement

Burnout: eXcitement
'Garble, garble, uhh ... and uhmm, garble.'


Burnout: eXcitement
The press had a field day.


Burnout: eXcitement
But seriously, nice work, kid. You too, Jaws and Bingaman.


Burnout: eXcitement
Back to the hassles of everyday life. Hey pigs! Larping is not a crime!


Burnout: eXcitement
Can't tell if this is a costume or not.


Burnout: eXcitement
Yep, it's funny where skateboarding takes you sometimes.


Burnout: eXcitement
But you'll always end up back on the streets! Right, Steven?
