Now that the Downtown Throwdown is sponsored by Arnette, the weather magically has been beautiful. Both stops are in poor weather regions during this time of year, but Seattle and this one here in San Francisco were both in comfortably t-shirt conditions.
We once again had an amazing team presence. This time we had Zac Marben and Tim Eddy joining the judges stand, to watch the field of competitors with our crew of Andrew Brewer, Nick Visconti, Ethan Deiss, Spencer Schubert, Colton Morgon, and Dylan Dragotta…even Gray Thompson came from Truckee to watch his teammates.

Our team did amazing, even though it was the first time some of them put on boots since last winter. Ethan got taken out early due to the lack of speed needed to clear the lengthy gap to lipslide he attemped… which ended up tweaking his back and putting him on the sidelines to cheer on the others. The rest of the crew did him proud, with Andrew Brewer receiving “The Destroyer” award from Zumiez, and Nick Visconti getting 2nd place and $2500! Dylan, Colton, and Spencer all kept the crowd cheering by having landed video-part worthy tricks and making it look too easy.

To celebrate, that night they all went to the Arnette Afterparty for a free Del The Funky Homosapien & Casual show. No details to be told from there…
Here are some of the great media coverage!
