Sam Beckett Wins Vert Attack 9

Vert Attack 6Well, that was one hell of a great skateboarding event we just experienced! In case you were still asleep, Vert Attack 9 entertained everyone in attendance at Malmö’s Bryggeriet Skatepark and around the planet via live webcast. The past 5 hours have truly shown that vert skating is alive and well and the next generation of vertically inclined rippers is progressing very quickly.

In the heated Pro/Am Final, England’s Sam Beckett powered through the intensity and usurped the field of competitors to win it big time. Cheers Sam! Tony Hawk, Alana Smith and Evan Doherty each won their respective finals as well. Check the results below. Thank you skateboarding!

Tom Schaar on Monster Energy Team

YouTube Preview Image Hopefully by now you’ve seen footage from Thrasher Magazines recent Session in the Abyss II event which was held at the DC x Monster vert ramp this past weekend. If not, have a look right here. Yup, vert skating is far from dead.

That said, Monster Energy has announced that they’ve brought teen phenom Tom Schaar on board with their skate team as he gains momentum with age, size, and abilities in the vert realm. Indeed, the future of vert and bowlriding is gaining steam.
