Action Sports Games 2014 Brenton Taylor scooter super grab

Brenton Taylor came in 10th but he had the best super grabs ever over the jump box.

The finals were hectic with it being a close competition. Coming in 5th place was Dylan Morrison. With large airs and multiple combos he was looking good but lack of park use must have held back his scores. 244 points. In 4th place was Matty Ceravolo, who hit the park well and used many of the transitions to his advantage with a good variety of whips and kickless styles definitely helped him move up to 4th place. 251 points. Taking out the 3rd place was Perth local Billy Watts. In typical Billy style he went fast high and kept a smile on his face. He hit the jump box better that most with some awesome style. 264 points. Moving from 4th to 2nd was another Perth local rider, Ben Thomas. He seemed to be holding back in his first finals run but unleashed a large amount of rad in his second finals run. With lots of variety and styles it definitely helped to get him to 2nd place. 265 points. First place was held all weekend by Max Peters. He rode the park like he owned it. Used it for all its worth and hit trick after trick with precision. His banger for both his first and second run in the finals was a front flip drop in into the landing of the jump box. 272 points. First place and $1100 plus the direct invite to the ISA world titles.
