Emerica's anual "Wild in the Streets" event popped of pretty hard last week, all thanks to Brad Holmes and Geoff Smith at Time Bomb. I remember a few years ago the event was hosted by some random douche of a rep who only knew spots like commerce and cbc, well this year the dudes running the show could actually skate the spots they went to, and they did so. Hammers were laid and cash was handed out at a pretty diverse range of spots downtown, making for what I would have to argue was one of the best street skateboarding events in Toronto. Zack Ferguson, Mitch Donovan, Byron Ready, Jose Cordova, Colin Findlater, Geoff Smith, Josh Forges, Brendan Cahill and Kevin Tio all destroyed it from spot to spot. A big thanks to Geoff Smith and Brad Holmes at Time Bomb for making it all happen!
Yankou knows it's smoother in between the tracks.
One of my favorite spots, I tried to do some tricks here.

Geoff Smith- bs crooked grind a ledge that does not want to be crooked
Mitch Donovan- nollie heelflip noseslide
A hyped crew
Jose Cordova starting things off with a big kickflip for such a little guy.
Zack Ferguson- Note the stomp on this tre flip, as if Zack needs an intact skateboard to roll away from big tricks.
Josh Forges- hard flip the way only Josh Forges can
Colin Findlater- sw heelflip
Mitch Donovan runs switch tre's second try, too fast for me to get on the right side!
Byron Ready- sw fs flip
LET US SKATE! LET US SKATE! LET US SKATE...........they didn't let us skate.
Josh Forges finishes the day off with this classy bs flip at CBC.
