On the 27th of October, 2012, the National Wallie Cup took place in Montréal. Originally invented by Pontus Alv, owner of Polar Skateboards in Sweden, Yan Tremblay the head behind Projet45 and as of recently, owner of YTdistribution, threw the same contest this year in Montréal, before hurricanes or earthquakes come to destroy our lovely Canada.
Last summer Dennis Busenitz won the contest with a nice wallie over 115.5cm (45.5″). But the world record has just been changed by J.F. Taillon from New Brunswick with an amazing 118.5cm (over 46.5″)! Congrats to him and thanks to all the people who came! See you next year.
