Elliot Sloan landed the first-ever 900 tailgrab on a MiniMega ramp at the Maloof Money Cup in Kimberly, South Africa.
In front of an wildly hyped crowd, who were getting to see the MiniMega Ramp for the first time in person, Sloan joined skateboarding’s exclusive 900 club. He attempted the trick unsuccessfully several times during the jam session but finally landed the 900 before the buzzer sounded.
Elliot joins Tony Hawk, Georgio Zatoni, Sandro Dias, Burnquist, Alex Perelson, and the youngest member Mitchie Brusco.
Elliot came so close at X Games 17 but was unable to land the trick under the bright lights. After X Games Elliot targeted Maloof Money Cup South Africa as the contest he was going to finally land the 900. The trick was enough to earn Elliot the win in the MiniMega best trick contest.
Back in June of 2008 in NYC’s Central Park, I was on hand to witness Elliot take his shot at the massive quarterpipe for the first time. Since then Elliot has come along way becoming a force to be reckoned with on the MiniRamp.
A special congratulations goes out to Elliot Sloan.
