Practice is ON at the inaugural O'Neill Evolution and the boys have been getting to grips with the beasty wedge that's the focal point of the action. See what the riders make of the thing.

Word on the street is the event organisers aim was to construct a booter with enough airtime for the dudes to go triple should the occasion take them. As you'll see from Wakeham's iPhone reportage here, it's sure got some airtime on it, and while the riders are reckoning it's a tad whippy right now with a bit of shaping the contest could be a bit fancy. You'll be able to watch all the ├╝berspinning from the semis on Friday and the finals on Saturday evening on the O'Neill Live page.
