In his initially significant profession win, newbie Ethan Cairns snagged the leading area in the males’s department at the inaugural Street Lines Skate Tournament in South Africa. The win stunned Cairns himself, who stated, “I went to the contest with no expectations. I wanted to skate and have fun. (However), I ended up winning the contest, (which) was really unexpected. It was good to see all the amazing skaters and watch everyone try their best.”
According to LW Mag:
Ethan Cairns stepped it up in the finals and skated surprisingly well through his run and technique sections with Back Smiths on lock, a Frontside 270 and Kickflip Frontside 50-50 down the rail, Frontside Feeble, Backside Tailslide on the grind ledges and a substantial Front Shuv down the 8-Stairs to declare the general triumph.
Boipelo Awuah controlled the field throughout the certifying and finals with her incredibly constant skating touching every challenge in the park. Stacked keeps up techniques like a Boardslide down the rail, Noseslide on the ledge, Kickflip and Switch 180 over the kicker-to-kicker, 50-50 down the hubba, Backside Ollies and Backside Heelflips over the hip put her on the leading action of the podium.
We can’t wait to see what they do next!
