UK Vert series- Corby results

Oakley UK Independent Vert Series – Stage 2 – Corby

All the usual faces were in attendance with the exception of the
mighty Dave Allen who is currently in Atlanta and Mr Pete King who
was locked in his bathroom suffering after a messy night out! The 2
Sams were back from their recent success at Tampa ams and were of
course on fine form.

The B-Group was a real mixed affair as usual with an age range from
early teens to somewhere in the forties I suspect. Special props to
Manfred and Zak Kutz (father and son) who made the long drive from
Cornwall and both entered – skating a vert comp with your dad must be
pretty rad! In a reversal of the Mt Hawke results Oakley Liddell
came out on top with his power and some sick moves like fronstside
stalefish as well as a backside kickflip. Second went to Joe the
Skin who is coming on in leaps and bounds throwing together long runs
with back to back airs. Third place went to Nick Hanson who is also
improving fast and with an ever growing bag of tricks.

It seems as though the A-group has already turned into a battle for
3rd place as the Sams seem to be groing more untouchable by the day!
Sam Bosworth was as usual blasting high but stayed low enough to the
coping for just a second to pull a surprise blunt fakie out the bag,
unusually he suffered a few too many early bails in the jams. Sam
Beckett has a huge trick bag, smooth effortless style and is
definitely one of my favourites (hence why I sponsor him!), every run
was different and featured a really good mix of lip tricks and airs
notably a huge array of flip stuff, the mandatory 540’s and some very
nice tailgrabs. It’s always tough between these two but Beckett had
the consistency on the day and that put him in first, making it 1 all
in the series so far! In third place Scotty pulled some ridiculously
tech lip trick runs together and as usual was a favourite with
everyone present, it’s the unpredictably of his skating that makes it
so good to watch, you really have no idea what is coming next!
frontside boardslides, frontside hurricane, egg plants, f/s feeble
grind – all ridiculously hard tricks pulled with the usual Scotty
ease! Fourth spot went to some old git called Sean Goff who
displayed his usual selection of fine tricks from every era of
skateboarding as well as tag-timing MC duties with Wingy and later
Rob Ayton. Full results from both groups below.

Thanks to everyone for coming, it was a lot of fun as usual, see you
all at Blackpool in May!
