Thousands of fans took to the iconic boardwalk to watch 18 of the world’s best BMX and skateboarding pros compete in the Sony Big Air Triples – a collaboration between ASA Entertainment and Sony Electronics designed to launch Sony’s new point-of-view video camera – the Action Cam.
James Foster (BMX) and Trey Wood (Skate) each secured first place, taking out the competition by throwing down the most mind blowing three consecutive tricks in quick succession, displaying skill and style on the 195-foot-long Big Air Triples course. Wood took the skate contest based on his overall consistency, trick variety and amplitude. The highlight was the finger flip to sack tap that he just learned that morning. Foster topped the BMX competition by landing a flip-whip to barspin, barspin to truckdriver.
Zack Warden (BMX) and Tom Schaar (Skate) each took fan favorite in the Sony POV Action Cam Competition – where fans judged the athlete videos filmed with Action Cams – while Morgan Wade (BMX) and Adam Taylor (Skate) took the judged POV filming competition.
In addition to the Triples and Sony Action Cam contests, fans experienced meet-and-greets with pros and test-drove the new Action Cam in Sony’s Extreme Zone.
