Thrasher Death Match
This year at the annual South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, Thrasher Magazine teamed up with Converse for the 2014 Thrasher Death Match at the Scoot Inn. The collaboration went all out this year and added a street course as well as a large mini ramp with a tombstone/bench set up. Here an unknown Austin shredder pops a 360 flip.
