Two weeks ago, the Chosen Few 2011 Final took place in Los Angeles, California. Ian McLeod won the comp and Tyler Hester got crowned 2011 Chosen Few Champion. Check this photo-set by Jeremy Condamine and get a feel what went down at the event!
So the ACF Finals this year were about as crazy as it can get. This may be starting to get repetitive but I will say it again because I really do mean it. Chosen Few's main goal is to expose new talents around the world, challenge skaters to push themselves to their full potential and to put on amazing events for all to enjoy! The Chosen Few Finals are now being known as one of the most difficult competitions around. We're not going to lie about that either. Our finals will always be an intense and challenging competition. You may get one easy spot at the beginning but that's about it. No matter what the last obstacle is, it will not be easy. It might be a huge down rail or it might be something random but we will guarantee that it will always have the competitors pushing themselves and skating their hardest.
The Chosen Few Milton Keynes Street Comp was a great event. We knew rain could be a factor and it was but it didn't matter thanks to the Bus Station Ledges. We did two spots there. 1st spot was the long T ledge. We said the whole place was open to skate for the first round but everyone sort of got stuck on this long ledge. Burston did one of the nicest true top souls ever all the way off the end cab out and Aaron Turner almost laced the 10 pound rebate trick on the ledge. The infamous true fish. With a grab, of course.
Quite honestly The Chosen Few Santee Street Comp was great. Nick Wood and Damien Wilson made sure the BBQ was running at every spot with hot dogs and cheese burgers on deck. Over $200 of BBQ was sold and that money went to best trick at all the spots. The BBQ was something that added a little extra vibe to the competition. Great skating, great food, great people, Santee style. So thank you for lugging that thing around all day. We ended up with close to 200 people and 40 competitors. The first spot was the famous Chicano Park line ledges.
First Sundays was awesome as usual, we had over 50 people at this session come out and enjoy a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon at the new Lincoln Skate Plaza. We had people like Kruise Sapstein, Rob G, Anthony Williams, Russell Day, Chris Calkins, Rudy Avila, of course Jeremy Soderburg who is one of the organizers and a ton of other rippers. The skate park has such a nice flow to it and I spent most of my time on skating the nice small p-rail which was a lot fun for everyone. We had a 50 person p-rail session going on at one point during the day.
This year ACHOSEN-FEW.COM is throwing 10 street comps around the world. We have competitions in California, Atlanta, New York, England, Switzerland, Germany, Canada and Utah. We have some great local organizers for each competition who are the reasons that this series is possible.
It's easy to find good skaters, it's hard to find great skaters and it's nearly impossible to find great skaters that are determined enough to do A Chosen Few section or profile. These skaters who you will see updates from over the next weeks are all the skaters doing sections or profiles for ACHOSEN-FEW.COM. Each skater was very carefully chosen to do one of these sections or profiles. No skaters section or profile will be released until it has reached the Chosen Few Standard which is set dangerously high. I want every skater who has a Chosen Few section or profile to do something big for their skate career. I also want them to remember this section above all others and make sure that they know if they can conquer a Chosen Few section or profile they can conquer anything. - Quinn Feldman

It was a hot Sunday session trick wise and weather. A bunch of skaters came out as usual for the our annual first Sunday session in the 90 degree heat of Montebello California. Skaters like Chosen Few pro rider Beat Schillmeier, Rachard Johnson, Coco Sanchez, Julian Bah, Jeremy Soderburg, Frankie Murcia, Joey Jaime and many others were out enjoying the session.
This dude has style! Fast blading, sick spinning and an open personality. Very clean, absolutely epic.
Get stoked up for the AChosen-Few finals. These competitions always promise to be some of the best around and never let us down. This is where the boys fade and the men shine.

Rollers in Los Angeles meet up on Sundays every once in a while to have a good session. There are no excuses accepted: Even though you might have a hang over from the day before, you have to come and bust it out. This month's first Sunday session took place deep in Los Angeles in the infamous town of Compton and everyone ripped it up - even though it was a chilled "sunday".
