Battle For Wisconsin League - April Update

Finatik Apparel's Battle For Wisconsin League is one of the premier events in Wisconsin skateboarding. The company is known for going all out, giving out cash and other great prizes, including a trip to the grand prize winner. There's nothing really like it. With those types of prizes on the line, it creates an environment for some of the best skateboarding Wisconsin has to offer. Don't believe us? Well luckily for you filmer Vinnie Oestreich has some edits that you can check out.

#WeTheMidwest Wednesdays: October 14th, 2015

From the depths of Instagram, we've brought back #WeTheMidwest Wednesdays! We've scoured your clips with the hashtag #WeTheMidwest, and will showcase some of our favorites every week in the Midwest Spotlight. If you're bringing the fire to the 'Gram, simply tag your best stuff with #WeTheMidwest, and maybe you'll see it here next week!

Here's some of our favorites so far:

Nick Scannell had no problem with this impromtu Euro gap at Four Seasons Skatepark, as seen here by the tre bomb up the gap and bigspin back down. 'Atta boy, Nick!

Ricco Porter handles his business at Joannes Skatepark in Green Bay, WI with this kickflip, heelflip, and hardflip down the gap and over the rail.

Speaking of Joannes Skatepark, @SurfSteve got it in with this gnarly no comply up the stair set. It was a battle, but that makes the payoff even sweeter when you roll away. Way to get it, Steve!

Now... let's get into some hammers. Alex Perkins is getting extra technical with some 360 Hardflips. Absolutely ridiculous.
