On January 22nd, 2010, we partnered with 5Boro and first announced The Best Line In New York Clip Contest. A simple contest where kids can go out, film one line anywhere in New York and win $1,000, a year supply of éS sneakers, $500 worth of Volcom gear, $500 worth of 5Boro product and a year’s supply of Red Bull! We’re taking a look back at the contest and the lines that went down in the attempts to walk away the winner. A lot of really good lines were submitted but Nate Rojas put down a heavy line at the Brooklyn Banks to set himself apart from everyone else. Below is a little breakdown from the original post 7 years ago. 

Congratulations Nate Rojas!

Nate Rojas claimed The Best Line In New York Clip Contest with a line shot by Harry Corrigan down at the Brooklyn Banks. Nate’s line features a bs 5050 down the small banks 9 stair, chain ollie into street, kickflips out of street, 360 flips down the big banks 4 stair and then seals the deal with a perfect crookiemonster down the big banks 13 stair. Nate walks away with $1,000, a year’s supply of Red Bull, one year’s supply of éS sneakers, $500 worth of Volcom gear and $500 worth of 5Boro gear… not bad for 42 seconds of skating!

Steve Rodriguez (5Boro) presented the Best Line clips at the This Time Tomorrow NYC premiere (4/17/2010). The top five (Charles Lamb, Bill Pierce, Nate Rojas, Ryan Santiago & Scott Sutherland) all got VIP access to the event, including tickets to this year’s Maloof Money Cup plus some NY Skateboarding goodies.
