Deck fiends of all ages dished out a few tricks on the vert ramp and bowl at KTR Skate School over the weekend.

The contest, sponsored by Cowtown Skateboards, awarded cash and gift prizes to the best tricks and overall performance in each division.

We took a trip to Mesa (without our boards) to see who was crowned, as well as take a few fashionable notes. The Good's above, the Bad and the Ugly are after the jump and the whole tricked-out slideshow is right here.
