Snap The Gap presented by Supra went down outside the Agenda Trade Show on Wednesday. It was a tricks-for-cash contest, with $2500 in cash being given out. Tricks were done over a a replica street gap that CA Skateparks built outside the Long Beach Convention Center.

With the distance of the gap set at 8-feet, the contest got under way. Skaters started charging the gap, every trick landed by someone earned some cash.
