7:00 am flight out of Oakland, straight to Austin, TX. Good times, great bands, cool folks, kill food. Thanks to Converse, Mike Crum, Kicker, and the Scoot Inn. Always tip the bartender—see ya next year.
Here's video from the 2010 Crossroads best trick contest. After the dust cleared it was clearly Cole vs. Nyjah vs. Merlino, with Nyjah taking home the top honor.

You want highlights from Ramona? How about Mountain, Navarrette, Red, Hosoi, Frazier, Crum, Schaaf, Barros, and Glifberg. Raybourn broke his arm, T-Mag got escorted out, the pin-ups contest was cancelled, and Lincoln Ueda ripped all day and was announced the winner. See you next year.
Rumble In Ramona 2008 was killer. Beers, bands, vert, and scantly clad women all add up to a sick party. Don't goon it this year; start driving now. It's on Saturday the 17th of October. Vert? Let's see some 10 foot airs this time.
Send in your gnarliest pivot or 5.0 to fakie on video and win a fat box from Dan Drehobl. Contest ends October 16, 2009.

A ring of fire, pig roast, a great course, and lots of cold ones made the Copenhagen Pro pretty epic. Torey Pudwill and Eric Koston put down some good shit in the finals and the electric box heated up during best trick. Torey Pudwill ran away with the win followed in second by Koston. Cheers.
