Recap: Tyson Wins and Enzo Hardflips the Damn Roof!

Posted by Rob Meronek on Saturday, June 6, 2015

Six of them won their way in at one of The Boardr Am Qualifying stops in the US. The other six we invited to make 12 total top ams that set off an amazing weekend of shredding on the X Games course. Congrats Tyson Bowerbank who is biting into that X Games Gold Medal right now for winning The Boardr Am Series Finals at X Games. Congrats to Nyjah Huston for winning Men's Street, Curren Caples for winning Park, and Alexis Sabline for winning Women's. We've got some photos from the whole weekend below. Check X Games and The Boardr Am results from the whole weekend here.

After the Contest, Enzo hardflipped off the roof, check the footage from my cell phone. If the ams are doing this today, what are the pros going to do???

We were in Vegas the week before the X Games, so after that event, we hopped in the #BoardrBus and hit the road to Austin. The scenery driving out of Vegas is amazing.

We randomly found this spot at a rest stop for a nice skate pit stop.

Two days on the road in the #BoardrBus is pretty comfortable. Thanks Jereme Knibbs for piloting this one.

Ryan and I lived here for a week while everyone else stayed in a hotel. There are some RV's that are far nicer than ours here.

All the winners from The Boardr Am stayed together in a shared house we rented so they could all be together for the show we're producing for ABC that will air soon.

Nights at the #BoardrBus started with the crew warming up for Niki Minaj one night and Metallica the following night, both doing their shows just a few hundred feet away from us.

At The Boardr Am Series Finals, the roof gap session that brewed after the Contest was insane. Dustin kicked it off with this backside 360 followed by Enzo hardflipping it.

I think this is the biggest crowd I've ever seen watch an am contest. If you were in those stands, thanks for coming to watch The Boardr Am Series Finals.

Clements was wondering what it feels like to wear X Games Gold while naked.
