Dylan Williams, Dominick Walker, and Tre Williams won the TransWorld SKATEboarding x Bones Love Milk “Battle of the Shops” on Saturday, representing for Active Ride Shop.
The team from Sun Diego Boardshop – Angel Gutierrez, Bobby Lunetta, Cordon Russel – took second, ahead of DJ Martin, Jorge Torres, and Alexis Ramirez, representing for Slappy’s Garage. Teams from Long Beach Skate and Pharmacy Board Shop also competed.
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.
