Maloof Money Cup

Over the weekend at the OC fair was the Maloof Money Cup. They call it the greatest Skateboard contest ever or something like that. I'll admit, it's pretty sweet. While they say they replicate all these spots from around the world (Reno, NV, Pioneer School in Upland, etc), the one thing they don't tell you is how they smooth out the kinks and make some of them a little MORE skateable. Not that it matters, all the dudes skating in this thing rip so it doesn't really matter how skateable the obstacle is, they'll kill it regardless.

Tommy Sandoval thought it would be a good idea to ollie the gap from low to high and land in a BS 50-50 above the Brooklyn banks setup and ollie in. We all wanted to watch. He got pretty close Friday night, and sure enough, he was trying it again on Sunday after the contest was over.

After a few attempts Wade Speyer decided he would help Tommy out and push him into the bank once he was locked in on his grind. It didn't really help, but it was nice thought.

Tanya and Wade grew up next to each other so they had a beer together.

This one is for my other favorite person from Danville, Jason Leith
