And the winner of the 2011 Overall King of Southsea...........Issac Clarke, congrats Issac! Its also worth noting he won the un announced best trick the judges voted on for the huge spine gap to double peg on the planter, it was awesome!
The day finished with long jump out of the bowl, right at the end it was getting nuts between Ben Thrower and James Weetch, during the 10 minute time limit, Ben Thrower took the win with a huge 12ft jump out of the snake run, out of the time James Weetch just topped it with 12.2, but the win went to Ben Thrower as it was it in the 10 min time period. Congrats to Ben Thrower! That was the last event of the contest!
