RINO HERMAN CAME OUT ON TOP AT THE BILLABONG CITY SQUARED INDO PRESENTED BY SONY ERICSSON AND WALKED AWAY WITH RP. 30.000.000!!

There was a little blessing rain at the beginning of Sunday, 23rd October 2011 but after that the sun was blazing and the Billabong City Squared Indo presented by Sony Ericsson was on with full speed.

 

32 skaters including Indonesia’s best also some international riders from Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and the Philippines all brought their A game in pursuit of the total rp. 60.000.000 cash prize!!

 

The competition was fierce and unpredictable, but in the end it was Rino Herman who took the first place.

 

“He was really focused and because of that he had some really good heats today,” explained judge Nareen Kameshwara. “He did lots of tricks, also attempted difficult tricks and combo tricks. That hardflip to backside 50/50 grind was crazy.”

 

“I can’t believe I won! At such an amazing event, too!” Claimed a ecstatic Rino Herman. “I worked really hard for this, practicing the tricks I want to show, and also lots of prayers. And all these people that came for the event, pumped my spirits even more!”

 

Rino also scored the Nixon Best Trick with his hardflip to backside 50/50 grind and took home the sweet Nixon 51-30. Not only that, he also walked away with a Sector 9 board and a Sony Ericsson XPeria Active phone!

 

The venue was jam packed with people eager to see the action and all the other activities that were going on. Our South East Asia Skate Team Manager held a coaching clinic which was very popular with the young kids.

“We are very happy that Indonesia held a skate event of this level,” stated Leopold Anggi of Indonesian Skate Federation. “It’s good for the guys to see Asia’s top skaters in action, definitely gives them some motivation to push forward. We are also super stoked about the international standard ramp that was donated by Billabong. This will definitely a great addition towards Indonesian skate movement.”

 

The event was closed by a rock solid performance from Gugun Blues Shelter and a rain of giveaways.
