Socal Team gets 3rd at Vans US Open Shop Battle!

Andrew Miller, CJ Collins, and Aidan Dansey represented SoCal Skate Shop at the 2014 Vans US Open Shop battle. We competed against 12 local shops with 3 person teams. Each team was given 6 minutes to show off what they had. Socal Skate Shop was up first and came out swinging. Andrew Miller was on fire all day, and skated through the heat landing almost every trick. He had combinations that blew the judges and announcers away. Aidan Dansey had good flowing lines, and inverts on the extension, keeping the rhythm and momentum of the shop going. CJ Collins was a crowd favorite with tricks like frontside flips, ollie north, big ollies, and stylish grinds. The shop tied for third with Jokers, and missed the finals by a few points. Andrew, CJ, and Aidan killed it for the shop; below are some photographs from the event. Video to come soon.
