Hampson on Podium at Toe Jam
Orlando, Fla. – Today’s top wakeskaters threw down for the Rockstar Winch Jam title on stop number one of the Byerly Toe Jam Wakeskate Series.
Every single Toe Jam has brought out the highest level of riding and today’s action did not disappoint. Thirty two riders challenged in the qualifiers today, allowing six riders to compete in the final. The finalists consisted of Clint Tompkins, Andrew Fortenberry, Brian Grubb, Danny Hampson, Ben Horan and Bret Little.
Hampson got on the board early with a clean frontside 180 / switch 50-50 shove. Then Horan amazed the crowd with a stylish front board shove. Grubb struggled for most of the 45-minute final, then came up huge with a late frontside shove up the Step Up Productions step up. Grubb landed super clean in the pool, drawing a huge response from the hundreds of Toe Jam fanatics.
In the end, Horan’s front board shove proved to be the best trick of the evening, earning him the Rockstar Winch Jam title. Keep your eye on FUEL TV for all the footage from this epic event.
The next stop on the Byerly Toe Jam series takes place at the Projects for the Rockstar Rail Jam on May 8-9 in Orando, Florida.
