Kaiju Box Battle Results!

Alright everyone! After long deliberation Tim Alexiel, Andre Coral and I have finally come up with the Winners of the 1st Kaiju Box Battle. There were over forty entries from around the world in this contest. I could not believe the quality of the fingerboarding sent to me. I kept on seeing a video and thinking "That guy is the winner" and then I'd see another video and think the same thing. I wish I could send prizes to everyone who entered, but I don't have that kind of resources to haha.

Anyways, here are the results:

3rd Place
Mike Schneider - Kickflip B/S Tail F/S 180 Noseslide Lazer Heel

2nd Place
Elias Assmuth - Kickflip B/S Noseblunt Nollie Tail Bigspin out

1st Place
Steffen Bonsert - Switch Bigspin Footplant Back Tail 270 Out

Honorable Mention:
Brandon Robert - Nollie Heelflip B/S Tail Body Varial Nollie Tre

We got a little something for Brandon too ;)

We felt all three of these entries brought something unique to the table. Mike's trick was extremely tech, and the way he popped from tailslide to noseslide in that finger position is amazing in itself. Elias had the best use of obstacle out of all the entries. The obstacle he used was made of rusted metal that would be extremely difficult to slide on, and he still did that trick flawlessly. Steffen's trick, I think, is self-explanatory why he won. The judges had never seen anyone do anything like that trick before, and he did it as smooth as can be.

Anyways, it was extremely difficult for us to come up with our winners. But after much deliberation we feel satisfied with the results. The whole point of this competition was to see how creative people could get on the obstacle and trick selection, and overall everyone did an amazing job! Thanks everyone for participating!
