Team Trouble – Laax, Switzerland – 2019

Video by Sean Nguyen, Skiby Bobaj and Jackson Davis. Edit by Sean Nguyen
“In the end there was no real winner cause the Lovenskate and Pocket Fluff lads decided to split pots due to the fact that Sam Beckett got injured during the final run. The Vans Team came in third and came fourth. It’s kinda weird to write this ranking cause it felt like there was just one big session out there.

Apart of that there was Jordan Thackeray and Sox winning the Best Double Award and Martino Cattaneo winning the Best Grind Award on Friday night. Clearly we’re not able to remember who exactly got some Swiss Franks out of the Cash for Tricks session, but Sam Beckett obviously crowned the first Vert Session by hitting the roof and knocking on the door for a possible Vert Jam next year.

The whole thing keeps getting better and better. The right people are coming back every year and bringing along friends. The staff organizing all of this is growing through every event and giving their best keeping things moving along smoothly. The crowd gets louder and louder. We’re getting more bands up there. And the skating just hit the roof this year. Too many thing went down… thank You to LAAX, the Freestyle Academy, Riders Club, Indy Bar and VANS Europe allow is to put together this amazing event every year.” – Alan Maag
