From wall to wall, the Skate Vert competition was stacked with skills as the heaviest of hitters rolled into the Pantech Beach Championship at Dew Tour.

Bucky Lasek came in hot off his second place Skate Bowl Semi-Final yesterday to take the top score in Skate Vert Semi-Final today. Lasek threw a 540 straight into a bonless to invert, a trick he invented only days ago. With tricks like that, Lasek earned an 87.00 in round one and was untouched by the guys in round two.

Although he did not steal the top spot, Sandro Dias worked his way into the number two spot during round two. With his signature 540 to gnar jar, Dias locked in a score of 82.75. Also scroing an 82.75, Mr. Consistency, Andy MacDonald knew he’d have to throw some crowd favorites. With a variety of 540s, including a nollie 540, MacDonald locked himself into a top spot in round one.

The top ten skaters from tonight’s Skate Vert Semi-Final will be back on the ramp tomorrow at 2pm ET to fight for the Dew Tour Vert title. Click HERE to watch all the highlights online, and be sure to check out our photo gallery from the link at the top of this post!
