A jam-packed venue of spectators attended the Sonic Generations of Skate contest at Clash at Clairemont 7 to watch select teams of vert skaters throw down their biggest tricks in a unique team contest in support of Grind for Life and The Mission Valley YMCA. Legendary Tony Hawk, Andy Macdonald and Mitchie Brusco, once again won the competition and donated their prize money to Grind for Life.
The event featured four contests: individual runs, high air, best trick and team triples, where each pro competed against their own generation for team points. Each of the four teams were comprised of three riders from different generations of vert skating. Every individual pushed the level of progression with technical lip tricks, varied aerials, and more.
