Immediately following the end of the intermediate division were the next three heats of the open division, where the unknown skate guppies swam in the same asphalt sea as the name-dropped street sharks. Each spot in the park got killed with a variety of epic tricks from skaters in all three open heats. The A frame box was a particular favorite for many—Brodie Penrod threw down a nose manual up, nollie kickflip to manual down. Kevin Fedderson kept it crazy with a fakie nose manual up, pop shuv and manual down. Sean Hadley repeatedly stuck a frontside 50 up then 180 to backside 50 down. Matt Fisher brought down the house of tech with 5–0 up 360 shuv out and backside lip up to fakie nose manny down.
The launch ramp gap was the other main point of interest for the crowd, skaters, judges and even the micro-organisms that occupied the ramp surface were probably cheering after each skater stuck huge air. Speaking of ridiculously huge fucking air, Levi Faust was constantly hitting up the ramps, even during heats other than his own, by kickflipping, nose grabbing, melon grabbing, and clearing the gap completely. Mike Zanelli backside flipped the gap while Taylor Mineer a.k.a. Corey Duffel Jr., stomped a boneless 360 to flat from the launch ramp. Caleb Orton owned the launch, with multiple tuck knees and airwalk grabs over. Sean Hadley took the crowd’s attention with a 360 kickflip off the launch to flat, and Isaiah “The Fish” switch ollie over the gap killed it. As the sun casted its last warm golden rays across the lot full of debauchery and delinquency, the high ollie was set in place before the winners were announced. Lizard King ended up with the biggest cahones and title of first place in the high ollie contest, with a 96-inch blast over the limbo pole.
