MT. HOOD, ORE. (JULY 19, 2009)– The 12th Annual Bonfire Pipe to Pipe series came to a close with the most heated skate finals in event history. The indoor park at Windell’s snowboard camp was packed from
wall to wall, while the Pacific Northwest’s best skaters battled it out to the sounds of cheering crowds and DJ Matty Mo’s metal mix.
Rion Linderman’s 540 on the vert wall impressed the judges landing him with $100 and best trick. The top three finishers landed too many tricks to name. They earned the cash based on the judges overall opinion. Steve “Manchild” Reeves came in first place, earning $500. James McCoy took second and $250 while Oudalay Philavanh rounded out third, pocketing 100 one dollar bills.
On snow, competitors kept it cool with a variety of sweet moves on the diverse jib set up. Seventeen year-old young gun Colt Morgan took on his third pipe to pipe of the summer with a set of skills that placed
him not only first for Ams but also 2nd place in the Pro final. In the end, HCSC digger and all around rail-slayer Ted Borland swept the finals walking away with first place and $500. Jordan Basurto locked down
third place and $100. Andrew Brewer grabbed 4th and $100 for Best Trick.
For the ladies, Sandra Hillen snagged best trick. Laura Rogoski walked away overall winner with $500. Molly Aguirre nabbed second and $250 while Raelynd Tarnove grabbed third and $100.
