Check out the footage of last week’s Biggest POP & Best Firecracker Variation Contest @ Schoolyard Skatepark in St. Petersburg. Westside Skateshop came through big in the Biggest POP category with Yonis Molina taking the Biggest Switch Ollie and Biggest Kickflip titles, and Jimmy Mastrocolo won the Biggest Ollie.
