We headed over to the Astoria skate park today for The King Of Queens contest where kids skated for a shot at $2,000 in cash prizes. The contest broke out into 3 parts: ledge, banks & manny pad ledge then concluded with best trick over the hump gap. Dudes were killing it, skating 2 on a ledge at some points, but in the end Shane McGrane ( ) walked away with the cash! Chris Anderson grabbed second place and Jimmy McDonald (5boro) tied with Kyle Knoblauch for third. After the cash was handed out Steve R gave everyone a chance to land tricks for free Maloof tickets. Here’s some photos from the day, we also posted some updates (TwitVids & TwitPics) throughout the day.
