It's day three of the SXSW Thrasher x Cons Texas Death Match out here in Austin, Texas and the vibes couldn't be higher. Between full line ups of bands playing non-stop on two stages at the Thrasher house and a relentless, non-stop session on the Death Match ramp, it's any skateboarders' paradise out here. 

By mid afternoon, the CCS Best Trick contest started heating up with Zered BassettBen RaybourneMason Merlino,Rainy Beres and host of other ams and Texas locals going big for cash on an assortment of ramp obstacles including a deck rail and the CCS bowled out extension. It was a heated match, but when the dust finally settled it was Ben Raybourne who walked away with the win for blasting an epic 540 on the CCS extenstion.    

There's much more coverage of this years annual SXSW coming all weekend long including band interviews, live footage and a full video recap of the Texas Death Match best trick contest. Keep it right here on The Corner for all the action.

In prep for the best trick contest we started off the day with a little ramp branding.....

Always a pleasure seeing Doctor Z skate a mini ramp. Here he is with a 5-0 fakie all the way across.....

Ben Raybourne going full frontal on the pool coping of the CCS extension. He blasted a 540 on this later in the day. 

Raybourne was putting on an air show all day. This wasn't quite a make, but an iteresting photo none-the less and clear indication of just how high he was blasting off the six foot wall. How are your frontside airs?

Heating up.....
