This past weekend, Converse brought their Coastal Carnage skate comp to the shores of Huntington Beach, CA, where it joined with the US Open of surf and a Nike 6.0 BMX comp for a veritable action sportsapalooza. With a cool $15k for the winner and another $2k for best trick on the "sharkbite" pillar, it brought out pros and ams both young and old, from up and comers Curren Caples and Kalani David to veteran street rippers Tony Trujillo and Eric Koston to vert legends Christian Hosoi and Tony Hawk (who was the only skater to strap on a hemet all weekend). Complex was there snapping and narrowed down 600-plus photos to an even dozen. Click to continue through the gallery (and see who won).
