I might be biased but of all the trade shows I’ve been to, the Frog Show is one of the most fun. Maybe it’s because of it’s low key vibe and all the homies are there. Tuesday night was the Vans Hi Standard Best Trick and Longest Ollie contest, where dudes had to go over the double set and land on a lily pad and the gap kept getting longer. Here are some photos from the day and the video recap. James Leger, Leon, Will Marshall, Johnny Purcell, Pat Tremblay, Vince Baldo and Mason Cluet all killed it and in the end, Julien Gagnon left Spin Skatepark 1000$ richer for his long ass flight onto that lily pad.

Before the contest, a minute of silence was observed in the memory of Pete Nicolas. Pete will be greatly missed by all of us and our sincere condolences go to his friends and family.
