- TransWorld Skate
For the first time ever at Huntington Beach, the local skate community witnessed the Vans Showdown, a unique “pointless” street skating contest, far removed from traditional skate formats.
Aiming to promote the fun and cultural side of skateboarding, while showcasing the best skaters in the world, it was Taylor Kirby and Fabiana Delfino who came out on top at the inaugural Vans Showdown. For Taylor, his effortless style and consistent combinations, which included an amazing tre flip up the extra-large euro gap, plus a back three over the Quasi obstacle, made the celebrity judge’s decision easy. Fabiana impressed from the get go with her incredible transition skills and casual runs at pace. Her flawless approach demonstrated that she truly is an all-terrain skateboarder in any type of format.
