Recap: The Boardr Am at New York City

Once again, it came down to the last runs in the Finals where Maurio McCoy was holding the lead. Jake Ilardi had the slight benefit of going last in the Finals from his clean sweep of the Semi-Finals and Qualifiers where he had just placed first in both. On Jake's third and final run, also the last run of the day, he put it down and edged out Maurio for the win at this stop.

Once again, it came down to the last runs in the Finals where Maurio McCoy was holding the lead. Jake Ilardi had the slight benefit of going last in the Finals from his clean sweep of the Semi-Finals and Qualifiers where he had just placed first in both. On Jake's third and final run, also the last run of the day, he put it down and edged out Maurio for the win at this stop.

Jake joins the other winners of the 2015-2016 season of The Boardr Am and goes to the Finals at X Games in Austin. Also joining us in the Finals at Austin is the top placing NYC local, Derek Holmes. There's one more stop in Tampa before we all head to X Games.
