There’s been a ton of excellent footage and media from this years 2012 Maryhill IGSA event that I’ve been meaning to share, and I thought it was time to get it all up on the site for you to see. Check out the trial runs, friendly heats, buttboarding, competitive heats and even footage from Patrick Switzer’s championship final run. All compiled on one page for your viewing pleasure.

Orangatang ambassador Dustin Hampton gives us a taste of the Maryhill experience with this practice run footage. What’s most telling is his quote at the end. For the record, I don’t believe it’s the track he’s scared of, but the fierce competition and tight pack style racing.
The guys over at Push Culture News shot this next clip which showcases this years hilarious ButtBoarding run, as well as an interview with Madrid Skateboard’s team rider and the inventor of Venom Bushings; Zak Maytum.
