Maloof Money Cup A Success for Social Media

The first annual Maloof Money Cup was held at the OC fairgrounds in Costa Mesa. The turnout was great and the weather was perfect for a skate competition; especially one offering the largest prize pool ever ($400,000+) with first place receiving $100,000 in street. The winner turned out to be Paul Rodriguez as seen below celebrating!

Second place went to Nyjah Huston, which was questionable and brought up a lot of debate in the social media real; especially forums and YouTube videos showing the last runs.

It turned out to be quite a fun weekend for everyone and there were suprise guests and artists such s Lil Jon an many others, too many to remember. Overall it will be great to have this return next year to the OC Fair Grounds.
