Wow! Can you say three peat? This dude has seriously got to be one of the highest paid skateboarders in the industry right now. Honestly, win after win!
Check out his sponsors list with “Toyota” as an official listing. Dude, a car sponsorship is above and beyond the incentive he probably receives from any of his other sponsors. Props to Greg Lutzka for pulling off the win this year and coming back home $20,000 richer.
His run was absolutely flawless. I have seen tons, and I mean tons of message board hate and video comments all over the place about him not deserving the win due to repetition of tricks. But with all honesty, this is the Tampa Pro not a best trick contest. You are judged on your consistency and difficulty of tricks within your runs. Greg Lutzka accomplished all of that and more. He may have done the usual tricks he normally pulls off, but regardless, 270 lipslides, frontside flip 360’s, and his daily 270 to blunt are ridiculously hard. And to be able to pull them off in a consistent line without flaws is gold worthy.
You can check out his run on Fuel TV.
