Congrats to Chance Gaul, 1st in the Slide Jam; Mack Wacey, 2nd in Open; and Jackson Shapiera, 2nd in Slalom.

The Dutch band has been a favorite among the European skate scene and now is ready to cruise west. Their debut album, 'I Got Skills', is reminiscent of the psychedelic 70’s sound met with a nod to easy listening melodies.
