Recap: The Boardr Am at Atlanta

Posted by Rob Meronek on Monday, May 9, 2016

At the end of the second of three runs, it was a close run for first between Jereme Knibbs and Christian Dufrene, but Christian put down a banger in his third run for a 92.76 that was not matched by any of the remaining runs.

Christian is the fifth winner of the 2015-2016 season who joins us at The Boardr Am Finals at X Games in Austin in June.
