  • Great line up!
    Foss killed it!

  • I was in that contest !couldn’t break into the top 16 ,,,but loved the pool……..

  • Thanks for posting these. I have not seen this coverage. I skated Winchester the first day it was open and the last (R.I.P.). Got to attend all the contests Hester Series, Gold Cup, etc. I forgot about the Lama Flex team those guys were ruling back then. After watching this I can see why nobody does POGO’s anymore.

  • My ear oh yeah 🙂
    “intense maneuvers”
    Hefty wages of $1000 for 1st place , lol

  • I had to turn the sound off. Those guys are such jerks.
