AARON ASTORGA: Ultimate Boarder 2008

After a full day of jaw dropping half-pipe skateboarding by 45 of the world’s most high-profile action sports athletes, the first-ever Ultimate Boarder™ competition concluded in dramatic fashion. With Chad Shetler, a professional skateboarder from Encinitas, Calif., taking top honors for the day, both the field of competitors and crowd of thousands were still puzzled as to who would be named the overall Ultimate Boarder™ champion, a competition that has spanned the past week and featured snowboarding in Squaw Valley, Calif. and surfing and skating in Ventura, Calif. When the final numbers were crunched by a field of expert judges, Aaron Astorga (Carlsbad, Calif.) was named the top “tri-athlete of our generation.”

The newly crowned champion was rewarded handsomely, including a $30,000 check, one-of-a-kind Soul Ryde longboard with gold, silver and bronze Revenge Trucks embellished with custom spinner wheels, a personal home fitness training system by Redcord and an $8,000 audio system from Rockford Fosgate. Joining Astorga on the Ultimate Boarder™ podium was professional snowboarder and silver medalist Todd Richards (Encinitas, Calif.) and bronze medalist, professional skateboarding kiwi, Kristian Phillipp (New Zealand). Additionally, plenty of spoils were bestowed upon the runners-up, Richards now boasts a checking account that is $10,000 richer and Phillipp will bank a cool $5,000.more on this story
