Martin secured the win in the Finals against former Big Air Triples Champion, Nicholi Rogatkin, by landing a combination of massive tricks including a front-flip barspin, to 360 triple downside whip, to a triple whip on the quarter-pipe.
“I love this style of contest, head-to-head knockout is a fun way to ride against your mates,” said Martin, who came into the Finals after taking home the top seed in yesterday’s qualifying round. “I’m stoked on how I rode tonight, the final with Nicholi was crazy. I had a few tricks I wanted to do, so I’m glad I went for it.”
Rogatkin, landed a cash roll to quad tailwhip to secure a spot in the Finals, while one of the youngest competitors in the group, Colton Walker, finished equal third with veteran Colton Satterfield.
