Adrian Fernandez de Valderrama, not only has the longest name I have ever had to write, but also a solid attitude for riding slabs. Being on your backhand you have to pick em, unlike the two naturals, but he arguably got the wave of the session. Check out the vid at the end for proof.

Micah Lester holding on for everything he has.
