Each shop fielded a three-man team for the contest, which was divided into three sections – Tech, Hubba, Rails – on the Dew Tour Street course.

Dylan Williams’ crooked grind to nollie heel flip around the curved ledge was a highlight of the 10-minute jam session in the Tech section. Dominick Walker’s kickflip nosegrind and high-speed gap to nosegrind helped make him a dominator on the Hubba ledges. And Tre Williams was the star of the Rails session, with big tricks like a nollie front crook down the 8-stair handrail.

“All the other shops killed it,” Walker said. “Those dudes were neck and neck with us. I guess somebody has to win and I’m stoked Active won, but I’m also super stoked some other teams got paid some money today. Props all around: the skating out here today was incredible.”

Active Ride Shop has seven locations around Los Angeles, including its shop in Long Beach.
