Coastal Carnage 2012 Contest Video Recap

Coastal Carnage 2012 Contest Video Recap
Coastal Carnage 2012 Video recap

It was a packed scene in Huntington Beach, CA this past weekend when Converse Coastal Carnage returned for its fourth year as the bowl skateboarding component of the Nike US Open of Surfing, the world’s largest action sports festival, produced by IMG, the global leader in sports and entertainment. Yes, Converse is owned by Nike…

The masses were gathering south of the pier to witness this year's U.S. Open, which also included Coastal Carnage and Damn Am HB.

The Coastal Carnage invite-only, jam-format pro/am competition was followed by a best trick contest where Aaron “Jaws” Homoki won first place with a kickflip melon grab to tail on the shark.
Like a fearless and always ripping knight, Ben Raybourn wowed the crowd with his unexpected moves, including a backside 540, fakie to fakie 540, and revert combinations that helped him win first place.

Ben Raybourn is among the new generation of skaters who dominate Converse Coastal Carnage including Converse’s own Tom Remillard and Ben Raemers, Curren Caples, Grayson Fletcher and Robbie Russo.

After two days of contest and ten qualifying rounds, Ben Raybourn took the top prize of $20,000, with Ben Hatchell taking $15,000 for second place and Curren Caples taking $10,000 for third. Homoki won $3,000 for best trick.
