Harold Hunter Day 2018 | TransWorld SKATEboarding
The four-day Harold Hunter Weekend had its finale Sunday at the LES Skatepark with a series of best trick contests. First it was the small rail and hubba, then it moved to the bump to bar/big apple. Then the big double-set was last. Adidas built a gap-to-rail and landing bank making this the gnarliest best trick at LES park ever! A handful of skaters stepped to it and pretty much everyone got their tricks and no one got served too bad. Celebrity judges Vincent Alvarez and Franky Villani handed out the cash for tricks, and Mark Gonzales even showed up towards the end of the day. Huge thanks to the Harold Hunter Foundation, adidas Skateboarding, and all the other sponsors and skaters for making this another amazing weekend in New York City.
