Screw the 150K, if I were as bodacious as a Nyjah Huston or a Chris Cole, I’d be psyched enough just to receive that huge ass box of NERDS. I love nerds! I would want to dip my entire head (LICE AND ALL) into that thing until I pass out. And knowing these guys, they will probably spend all their money on ridiculous things like investment properties, business ventures and taking care of their family, but I would use all that money to by as many cases of large box Nerds that money would buy. And then build a house out of those boxes. Sure I might not have the most ideal LOCATION for my house, but at least I would be in heaven.
With the hype from over the weekend still resonating in the skateboard world, check out some of these clips from Street League and enjoy this nice moment in a special video put together featuring the event’s senior member Chris Cole. The action was off the charts at Kansas City’s Sprint Center where 15,000 fans witnessed the world’s best skateboarders compete in an explosive, down-to-the-wire battle for a $150k purse. When the dust settled, Monster’s Cole walked away $65,000 richer. He locked down a solid, second place finish and took away top honors plus an extra $10k in cash for winning the Wonka Free Ride Best Trick contest.
With consistency and strategy Cole worked his way toward the top slots in the early part of the final: flip to flip combos in the line section, backside blunt on the Hubba, and huge tech moves in the Big section, Cole put every other competitor in the final under serious pressure. In the Line section, Chris dealt a five-o up to flip out followed by a flip to front board on the flat bar. With that, he posted his highest single-trick score of the day, an 8.3. With a string of eight back-to-back tricks, Cole moved comfortably into the top three, then proceeded to fight trick-for-trick in the final “Big” section with Huston, where he stuck the back 3 ollie, 180-Switch crooks down the Hubba, and held the lead all the way until the last trick.
