For the past two years, we’ve been taking over Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas for Zappos Rideshop in Las Vegas. This year, Zappos let us have their headquarters for the day where one hour was blocked off for a best trick contest down the never before skated double set out front.
$10,000 was put up and it was on. Hopsin then signed up to perform afterwards to complete the big day in Vegas. Just days before the event, Zappos, in purse Las Vegas fashion, double down on the purse. They raised it to $20k! Here’s the list of tricks that went down and who got paid along with some photos below. Top 3 overall were Chris, Yoshi, and Enzo.
