The skating at Mike Brown Fest was super good. When Mike Asked us to bring our ramps for his festivities we were pumped to be a part of it, and even more excited to see all the talent blasting the pieces we brought. As anyone can see Lizard King made no waist of the space. Most of his tricks he didn't bother with the down ramp at all and just blasted all the way to flat. It was Annex's first impression of him in person, and all we have to say is that aside from earning his pro title, he is in no way a douche. Lizard King was probably the most respectful guy in the bar. But we cant give all the skate cred to him alone. Tons of other Utah's own skaters also showed up and destroyed! That nose slide pic is actually half cab in and 270 out! Lizard had a huge north back-side 180. For what small space there was these guys definitely made the best of it. If you want to see more of the skating pics taken last Saturday visit our Facebook and we'll get it all updated there. Thanks again Mike!!

Here are some of the highlights from the Volcom, Wild in the Parks Competition tour.
As you can see it was a pretty good turn out for Volcom this year.
First, this is Aaron Lopez, for Odeus Skateboards "Who most people thought skated best all around but only took 4th" with a really perfect nollie big-spin flip down the 8 while some other dude pics himself up.
And second shown is Nate Brown, with a really perfect back side 360.
This comp was full of some of Utah's very best skaters.
