Once again, Burton flew in some of snowboarding’s sickest rail shredders to throw down hammers at the Tokyo Rail days. Forest Bailey won, bumping out last year’s winner, Jamie Nicholls, in an intense final. Check the highlights of the whole damn thing… 

A huge crowd turned out despite the rain, and the riders tackled the impressive jib setup with increasing ferocity through the initial jam session all the way through to the finals. The names on the list were heavy – Forest Bailey, Jonah Owen, Jamie Nicholls, Ethan Deiss, Zak Hale, Marc Swoboda, Dylan Alito, Ludwig Lejkner, Mark Sollors… the riding was insane as expected and with so many jib bosses it was never going to be easy to judge. In an effort to put the judging out of question, Burton jetted in legendary freestyler Jeremy Jones to be involved in the scoring. When all was said and done, by showing consistent, technical riding all night long, Forest Bailey was awarded the $15,000 first place prize, followed closely by Jamie Nicholls and recent Rome pro, Jonah Owen.
