5Boro & Homage held the Brooklyn Bangers contest over at Thomas Greene Park in Brooklyn giving skaters a chance to win $4,000 in cash and prizes. The weather was perfect, DJ Teddy King held down the beats and the skating was on point. Steve Rodriguez broke the contest out into young bucks, ledge, wedge and ended with a long ollie gap over a trash can. Kids were in it to win it but in the end only a few walked away with the cash.
