Fixed Freestyle Scene Report: Spring 2007 Skidface

Back in March of 2007, Jason of 4916 threw a 6-week long fixed freestyle contest under the BQE called Skidface. Each week there was a different event ranging from trackstand, to bunny hops to sprints. This was pre-Peel Sessions and at the time, I was super low-key with doing tricks. I could barely barspin I think. Luke, of Empire, along with Dan Gonzalez made this video of the finals night.

Kyle Demers of DQM / Nike took first place. People always say the current state of fixed freestyle is boring to watch when compared to BMX. Well, this stage was just boring to watch period! Events like this were my first introduction to organized competitions at non-messenger events. Crazy how far they’ve come!
