Active competed against several other Southern California based skate shops in a 'Shop Challenge' X Games put on for the first time this year. The contest took place prior to the X Games Best Trick and the tension was high. The Active Team consisted of Justin Figueroa and Torey Pudwill. Figgy broke his board after skating for only about 10 minutes and had to skate Colin Provost's board and Torey was throwing himself down the obstacles and going crazy. After the intense jam session on the obstacles for 30 minutes, the Active Team was awarded an X Games Gold Medal in the first ever Shop Challenge!
Active would like to congratulate Justin Figueroa and Torey Pudwill on a job well done and we are ready to follow in the footsteps of Chris Cole and make sure we bring home the glory again next year! Check out the clips and photos from the challenge.
