Demonstrating his exceptional skills and unwavering determination, Ward secured an impressive 3rd place, showcasing a thrilling performance that left the audience in awe.
Jack's standout performance included a series of impressive manoeuvres that displayed his technical finesse and control. Kicking off with an alley-oop 360 inward gap from the spine to the box landing, he set the pace for an exhilarating run. Followed by an invert on the vert wall and a corked 720 over the box, Ward's seamless transitions and unique combinations, like the downside heelwhip to superman air and the front flair gap, highlighted his mastery of the scooter.
