Halloween Hellride 3

The Hellride gets gnarlier every year. Raybourn claims the top spot, Ronnie literally gets caked, and Charlie Blair shuts down the festivities with a taildrop of death. Happy Halloween!

By the time finals rolled around most guys costumes had fallen apart or been discarded.  Oscar Navarro air to fakie.

When choosing a costume for something like this, how well you can skate in it is a key factor.  Raney Bares as Duane Peters and kept with the theme by skating just like Duane and only doing Duane’s signature tricks.  Those timeless moves can still get you to the finals.  

and thats time...

The crowd went nuts.

Nine of your ten finalists, Raney/Duane was in typical Duane fashion  M.I.A.

and of course cake to the face.

Happy birthday Ronnie, all you guys killed it..

    Great weather, beautiful women, amazing Canadian hospitality, insane skating, and one of the gnarliest slams of all-time. This one had it all, with Alex Sorgente taking home the prize. Chalk up another epic contest to Vans.

    If you've been skateboarding in the last 20 years you've either ripped with Mike, ridden in a van with him or had him kick you off the team. Who knew he was also a photographer? Well, he didn't either, but check this shit out! Thanks Mike!
