Maloof Money Cup OC Chris Cole Three-Peats

Chris Cole wins third Maloof Money Cup

words_Nick Engvall

Twenty-eight-year-old Chris Cole went into the Maloof Money Cup OC as the favorite to win the Volcom Pro Street event. Rightfully so, as he has won the last two MMC events, which includes New York in June and the 2009 Orange County event just over a year ago. However, if he was ever going to lose, the performance that Nyjah Huston put on in the final round should have been it.

Not to say that Cole’s skating wasn’t worthy of a victory, but Nyjah seemed to have the course on lock. From the concrete wave at the back wall, all the way to the edges of the benches out near the crowd, Huston landed everything–all 16 of his final round tricks to be exact–putting pressure on Chris Cole to be just as perfect.

According to the judges he was, and Cole walked away with $100,000 in prize money, while 15-year-old Nyjah was left with a second place finish and $40,000 in prize money.

It was likely Cole’s switch frontside flip as time ran out that left the final impression on the judges that put him over the top. Although Cole won this event, it will be his last MMC as he’ll be competing in the newly formed Street League Skateboarding founded by DC Shoes rider Rob Dyrdek.

For Nyjah Huston, although the loss is tough to handle, this is really just the beginning. At just 15 years old, he’ll have plenty of time to take home a first place at the next Maloof Money Cup on his way to most likely one of the most impressive skateboarding careers we’ll see.

As for the Maloof Money Cup, the founders Joe and Gavin Maloof, owners of the Sacramento Kings, are looking into adding additional events in the future.

Volcom Pro Street at Maloof Money Cup

words_Nick Engvall

This weekend, the Maloof Money Cup, one of the biggest events in skateboarding, returns to its roots in sunny Southern California. The Maloof Money Cup OC takes place in Costa Mesa. For many, the highlight of the five-day event is the Volcom Street Pro competition. At the last event in June,  the MMC was held across the states in New York City for the very first time.

Will Chris Cole Three-peat at the Maloof Money Cup?The Volcom-sponsored Street Pro is loaded with some of the greatest skaters around. FuelTV will televise the event, where you’ll be able to see skaters like Zoo York-sponsored Brandon Westgate, Lakai-sponsored Brandon Biebel, DVS-sponsored Torey Pudwill, Nyjah Huston, and many others. The focus, however, will be on Fallen sponsored-Chris Cole, who will look to take the $100,000 prize that is given to the winner for the third consecutive MMC event.

In June,  Cole battled the hot and sometimes rainy weather to defeat second place finisher P-Rod and third place finisher Pudwill in the final round. While battling the elements may not be a concern for Chris Cole in the OC, the way Pudwill has been skating might make this one of the best Volcom Street Pro battles the Maloof Money Cup has ever seen.

Who is your pick to take this weekend’s event?
