Returning back to the island getaway for a lucky 3rd year meant that the Downhill Division had one thing on their mind... win everything! The competition was fierce, the party was legendary, and when the dust settled local bomber AJ Haiby had claimed the crown! Congrats to all of the riders who made the journey and raced their wheels off!
The Downhill Division invaded The Catalina Island Classic winning the race over 128 of the world's best downhill skateboarders.

Ricky Whitlock and Karl Strauss Brewing Co. teamed up to create a collaboration libation that will be known as "Helles On Wheels". Starting in mid-May our joint effort will be available for a limited time at the Downtown San Diego Karl Strauss brew pub.
