It was a hot summer day in Houston for the Roundwall Rumble pool jam. As the sun was setting in the west, the action was heating up in the bayou city. The format was four age divisions and one open class. The amazing part was the amount of kids in the two youngest divisions. The first rule of the contest was you must be able to drop in the pool and a good twenty plus kids showed up for the eleven and under class. Hats off to all the future rippers to having the huevos to skate.
Cockfight's Kevin Lane ran the day smooth as butter handing out prizes, announcing, and even making the trophies. The final for the open class finished up with only ten minutes before the park closed.
Embassy's Little Max Peterson was tearing it all day winning his age division and making a good show in the open class.

Kid sensation Jeremy Smith show his skills with speed, lines and old school tricks. I think this kid was born about twenty years too late. Jeremy took first place in the open class.
What can I say about Tom Montgomery ? No really what can I say ? I don't know where he's from, where he lives, how long he'll be here. They call him Tomahawk and for good reasons, I've seen him yelling at kids on the deck "either you drop in or get the fuck off the ramp soldier" Tom took home 2nd in old farts division
Why is one guy always standing in the middle of a sticker toss giving you a thumbs up?
