San Diego is a major hub for skateboarding, no surprise here when almost all the Big Air competitors are reppin’ the whale’s vagina.
Birthday boy Andy Macdonald and young gun Adam Taylor move on from today’s Skateboard Big Air Selection Session to compete in tonight’s finals against four of the world’s top skaters. Last year’s medalists Burnquist, Brown and Gagnon (gold, silver and bronze, respectively) are automatically qualified for tonight’s event.
Danny Way, three-time consecutive Big Air gold medalist (in X Games 10, 11,12), was pre-qualified for the final last year at X Games 13 due to his gold in 2006 but did not compete last year because of a previous injury.
It all goes down at 5:45 p.m. and the shit’s gonna be intense!
The competitors going into the finals are:
Bob Burnquist Sao Paulo, Brazil
Jake Brown Carlsbad, Calif.
Pierre-Luc Gagnon Carlsbad, Calif.
Danny Way San Diego, Calif.
Andy Macdonald San Diego, Calif.
Adam Taylor Cocoa Beach, Fla.
