Dylan Thompson may be a rookie to this competition, but he’s got previous when it comes to producing popular online vids – this much-watched vimeo vid, was responsible for launching him into the big leagues. Louif though won last year’s gold medal.
Here’s Dylan first.
A sick section, with some original looking spots (we’d love to know where some of this is filmed) and a sweet combination of tech tricks, insane tricks, and properly solid style. Now here’s Louif…
In any other matchup here we’d like to think Dylan would win, but against a part that opens with that front 7? We’re not sure he can. Louif is as technical as always, and somehow manages to shred a whole bunch of previously unseen spots in and around his hometown. It’s crazy, we’ve been to Quebec, it’s not that big – where the hell does he find all these places?
He also of course has the established reputation as a core shredder’s favourite. We’re predicting Louif to take it here, and assuming he does, we’d back him to win the vote against Bode Merrill in the second round too.
