2017 March Radness Presented by Adidas Skateboarding

March is made for Cinderella stories. Every tournament needs an underdog that comes out of nowhere, surpasses expectations, and makes history with an unlikely victory. We’re not talking about March Madness, we are talking about March Radness.

This year’s Cinderella was our very own Wes Lembo. March Radness was stacked with elite skateboarders from all over the southeast like Jason Salillas, Alec Spinosi, and Jake Wooten as well as local rippers Niko Howard, Troy Cobucci, Nick Hagley, Gage Gum, Tommy Stephan and many more. All pushed their skateboarding to the limits and left it all out there on the skatepark (a few left even more in the parking lot). The Street Division was an epic battle, but the universe was on Wes’ side.

Wes let his skateboarding come to him. He didn’t force anything. He didn’t tense up. He lived in the moment and allowed his tricks to happen. His trick selection, style, and poise paid off as he walked away with the victory and $500 cash courtesy of Adidas skateboarding.

The Bowl Division saw a mind-melting clash of styles, but there would be no Cinderella here. The finals where all chalk. Jake Wooten, Greyson Beal, and Oregon transplant, Pat Donivan destroyed the bowl. In the end, Jake outperformed the competition and took home the $500 cash.
