Round #1 of the WakeWorld Reader Video Contest presented by O'Brien is in the books. We asked you to send us video of your steeziest frontside 180 and we got a great response. Pro rider Sean O'Brien was the judge and he carefully went through every video several times before he came up with the top three.
The grand prize winner will walk away with a beautiful 2012 O'Brien Paradigm wakeboard, Sean's pro model. Second place grabs a case of Rockstar Energy Drink while third place picks up a WakeWorld tee-shirt.
So without further ado, here are the winners and their winning videos...
1st Place: Will Green - Big Heelside Statalefish 180
2nd Place: Tom Knotek - Heelside Tail Grab 180 (0:20)
3rd Place: Luke Romero - Big Poked Heelside Nose Grab 180 (4:54)
Throughout 2012, we are looking for video submissions of YOU laying down your most stylish version of a trick we specify for each contest period (usually a month or two depending on the season). All submissions will be judged by O'Brien team rider Sean O'Brien and the top video submissions will walk away with some amazing prizes from our sponsors. The very best video of the bunch will walk away with a brand new wakeboard from O'Brien, while the runners up pick up a case of Rockstar Energy Drink and a WakeWorld tee-shirt.
