Heat of the Day: O-SMAS Final: A close exchange all around, with competitors doing their best to impress the nit-picky O-SMAS judges.

Performer of the day: Ola Eleogram. The young Hawaiian darkhorse was popping all weekend and surprised everyone with his creativity and consistency.

Shocker: A disappointed Brett Simpson bailed on the O-SMAS final after narrowly losing out in the main event.

Quotable: “I just kept doing ‘em and look where it got me.” — Ola Eleogram referring to the O-SMAS commentator’s constant ribbing for his “safe” double grab aerials.
