Pool Jam in NorCal Backyard
The Auburn Home Show played host to the West Side Vibe, An Action Sports Production Company/Off Axis/CWB Board Co. “Backyard Pool Jam” on May 18th–20th. Boasting a picturesque scene, riders started from a waterfall in order to take their run at either the 40-foot up-flat-up box, or the 40-foot up-to-flat that stood over seven feet tall. Many top Nor-Cal riders showed up vying for over a grand in prize money. Progressive moves and the infamous West Coast style was the flavor of the weekend, but in the end it was Jacob Locken taking home $500 for first, Matt Norton gaining $300 for second, and Waylon Brausard bringing in $200 for third. Many seasoned riders as well as some up-and-comers turned out to shred the rails during this three-day event. Thanks to Off Axis Boardshop/offaxisboards.com, West Side Vibe, CWB Board Co., Magnussen’s Dodge of Auburn, Launch Wakeboard Towers, Sun Sign Co., Capital Water Sports, and all the participants for putting on this three-day jam.
