This years Triple S was bigger than ever before, the prize money doubled $40,000 this year. Since introducing prize money in 2012 people have started taking the event more seriously, the original triple S was all about a group of riders coming together to push the sport and party, last year they introduced judges and a new format to raise the level of the contest, in the hotly contested slider discipline riders had two runs through the park marking each riders best trick on each feature, this created the fairest possible result but also cut down the amount of riding time, riders came from all over the world to session the Real Slider park and some only got two runs through the park the whole week. So this year they re introduced the Jam style format to give everyone more riding time, this enabled everyone to really push there level as we all had more chances to land our best tricks, we had 40 minute heats with large groups of riders with judges on each feature which made the competition closer than ever before.
