What sealed the deal for Wallace was the barrage of technical tricks he was able to squeeze into the last few seconds of his run: a downside footplant x-up on the building’s support beam, a 540 tailtap, and an over-tooth-to-back-over on the triangle spine —an unreal run that had every element of riding. After the event, Wallace was on cloud nine.
“There is always a course for someone and that bowl just seemed to be made for me,” said Wallace. "It worked so well. It was one of the most fun bowls I have ever ridden and I wish we were still going. I’m just pumped on the whole experience and am still buzzing on the whole event.”
Immediately after the award ceremony, the Best Trick Jam kicked off with 20 minutes of what can only be described as controlled mayhem. Monster Energy had a strong presence in the Jam with Colton Walker pulling a Twix air (a tailwhip barspin at the same time) and Kevin Peraza almost stomping a never been done 450 nose manual-to-360 downside whip. But, it was Monster Army’s Fox who took the Best Trick win for spinning an unreal 1080 over the spine. It was a battle, though. Six attempts and one destroyed wheel later, Fox rolled away clean. Fox summed it up simply afterward, “I’m going to be sore tomorrow.”
