Even the “G.O.A.T.” himself, Tony Hawk was in attendance over the weekend overseeing the trials.
Some skateboarders had amazing tricks and did incredible maneuver’s while some had mistakes and nasty spills. One in particular had viewers “groaning.” Peruvian skateboarder, Angelo Narvaez went viral over the weekend after taking a painful spill.
