Menlo Skate Jam 2016 was an event to remember! There were gnarly pack runs, huge airs off tiny kickers, and lots of shredding all day long. The sunny Northern California hillside provided for fast runs and long slides.
Mellow turns made it easy to hit goofy and regular. The hill was littered with ramps and obstacles, a key feature of the Menlo Skate Jam. Some of the gnarlier dudes were hitting the ramps all day long. Jasper Ohlson landed a benihana off of a 4 foot kicker to flat.
Towards the end of the day Quentin Gachot and Jakob Santos were hitting the kicker gap for longest jump. They both wound up hitting 15 feet before they each called it quits.
Menlo Skate Jam was a killer time this year. The judges said it was one of the most organized freeride events they have ever been to. Make sure to be there next year as Menlo is sure not to disappoint.
