Taking out the mens division was Kiwi Nick Poochoff, winning both the Best Overall and best trick pulling a 50-50 Frontside 270 frontside boardsider to regular out.
The womens division was highly competitive with Rebbecca Torr, pushing the skill level, but it was Stefi Luxton who took best trick with a 50-50 swivel switch on the round bar and Christy Prior taking out the Best overall with her styling tail presses.
