The Boardr Am at NYC

Posted by Rob Meronek on Monday, June 5, 2017

The first stop of The Boardr Am for 2017 is in the books with Jereme Knibbs taking first at this one with one of his best looking park tricks: a frontside half Cab flip into the quarter. Check that along with his full run that did it including highlights of the best of the day from our filmer, Trap Nate. The Boardr staff Photographer Chaz Miley also has some flicks from the day.
