Recap: Hot Wheels Junior Series at Huntington Beach

Posted by Rob Meronek on Monday, April 8, 2019

The second year of the Hot Wheels Junior Series Built by Woodward kicked off at Huntington Beach, California last weekend where we had 78 BMX entries and 161 skateboarding entries. Thanks to all the families that made a weekend of it. We've got a few photos below. Check the schedule for the rest of the year here.

Koston Eaton was one of my favorites out there. He's already skating like a grown man in that tiny body. So is Mr Bacon Beast there with him.

I saw Tate putting in the work to get his boardslide on the end of this rail so I asked if I could shoot a photo. I like how that has the effect of giving you a bit of motivation to make it. Tate got it! Thanks for the photo man, and nice meeting you.
