Some of the matchups were really tight and awesome to watch. The two winners were awarded with two Limited Edition Salomon New Era caps. After the hot dogs were all gone it was time to announce today’s 5 finalists. Alexi got on the mic and named the names of Devan Arsenault, Chris Slaunwhite, Andre Aikens, Jeremie Boutout and Ryker Brennan.

The man's were killing it, some of the highlights were a frontflip off the first flat box, a steezy Flatspin 360 from Jeremie Boutot, a one-handed trucker driver slide, followed by controlled airs on the jumps and finishing with a Cork 900 from Andre Aikens. It was a tight race for first place between Jeremie and Andre, but at the end of the day, Andre was the smoothest and had the cleanest run of the day.
