Brandon continues to set the standard with his powerful of riding! Consistently landing new tricks and going more inverted than anyone else, Brandon placed 2nd in slicks and sliders while making the final for surf. By the end of the week Brandon’s results across the 3 different disciplines yielded a 2nd place finish combined!

Victoria was a standout all week with her impressive arsenal of tricks and great attitude. Winning the surf division and placing second in slicks, it’s no wonder that Victoria made the podium placing second combined!

For the second year in a row, Sam Light claimed the combined win at the Triple-S by winning first place in sliders, 2nd place in the surf and making the finals in the slicks! Sam’s level of riding continues to rise and we’re stoked to have him be part of this event.

Video: Colleen Carroll Highlights

As the reigning champ, Colleen definitely brought her a-game to this year’s event with some more outstanding performances across the board! Colleen won 1st place in women’s sliders and slicks while placing 3rd in the surf. That combination meant that Colleen cleaned up and placed 1st combined for the second year in a row!

Video: Aaron Hadlow Highlights

Aaron Hadlow raised the bar once again in this year’s event with incredible performances in the surf and the slicks. Since Aaron wasn’t able to complete his qualifying heat in the sliders event he ended up 3rd place combined.
