Big congrats to Tristan Rennie. He won the Combi Am contest this year and won a seat into the Pro contest. First year in the pro division and he gets 1st place. INSANE!!!!
This year’s contest was a big changing of the guards. As Jim Gray pointed out 4 out of the 6 skaters in the pro finals were 16 or under!
Just want to send a huge thanks to all of the Pros for rocking S1 Helmets!

The S1 Lifer Helmet fits great and it is fully certified to protect your head from multiple impacts and single high impacts. The Lifer is the safest and best fitting helmet for skateboarding, longboarding, BMX and roller derby.
“I ride the S1 Lifer Helmet because it is the best helmet out there on the market.” Eddie “El Gato” Elguera
S1 filmer and editor Robert Crawford headed out to The Yard in Palm Springs to meet up with skateboarding legend Eddie “El Gato” Elguera. Eddie was a 2x World Champion back in the late 70′s early 80′s, he was the first person to do a Frontside Rock n Roll and Fakie Rock n Roll and invented the Elguerial. His friends called him El Gato cause his skating was smooth like a cat. Eddie is over 50 now and still skates on the regular and still rips!
A few years ago Eddie was wearing a soft foam non-certified helmet and he tried on an S1 Lifer Helmet. He loved the fit and he liked the fact that the Lifer was going to offer more protection than the soft foam helmets. He was been wearing the S1 Lifer Helmet ever since.
If you are looking for a helmet we highly recommend the S1 Lifer Helmet. It fits great and it is fully certified to offer the best head protection. The Lifer meets the ASTM multiple impact standard, the CPSC high impact standard, the Australian and New Zealand helmet impact standards and the British high impact standard.
If you love skateboarding and you wear a helmet – def check out the S1 Lifer Helmet for you and your friends and family.
