Cinco De Mayo is an annual cultural celebration, celebrated by Mexican – American in the US. It is also tpo commemorate the Mexican Army’s unlikely victory over French forces at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862, under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. But, the cool people over at Thrasher Magazine have put together an event that defies any traditional Cinco De Mayo celebration titled Bust Or Bail : Cinco De Slammo. This event was set up at a huge triple stair set and the comical Jake Phelps was in charge of the P.A. system, acting as the presenter.
The whole point of this event was, skaters took turns flinging themselves over the stair set busting out the best tricks in their arsenal. The usual SLS and X-Games household names like Shane O’Neill and Ryan Decenzo are among the participants. Other names include Lizard King, Tommy Sandoval, Pat Duffy, Frankie Heck and many more.
Check out the video below and watch it until the end where Tommy Sandoval’s frontside flip caused the biggest stir of the event.
