In the spirit of “Back to School”, pick up the latest issue of East Valley Mag to catch an article with KTR Academy riders, Jagger Eaton and Alana Smith! Between travel, competitions and sponsorship obligations they manage the schedules of an adult, but yep, even these two have to balance school!
Congrats to Jagger Eaton and Alana Smith for laying down some amazing skating at X Games last weekend- despite the extreme humidity and heat of Austin, TX!
Alana Smith: 5th Place Women’s Street. It was a heavy competition at X Games 2014, and Alana was the youngest girl out there. She put together two solid, crowd pleasing runs in the Final. Tricks included: boardslides, backlips, 50-50 ledge grinds, boneless plant off the oil tank, huge ollie into the bank, 360 b/s ollie, ollie of the gravel gap and rail, and a frontside ollie over the drain pipe! She killed it.
Jagger Eaton: 8th Place, Big Air SKB. 10-12knot winds and extreme heat described the conditions out at Big Air Friday evening. Jagger put down a solid run with a switch 180 to 540 in the elimination round. The heavy winds a top an 80ft drop, made for an extra challenge. Jagger was also the youngest out in his event.
Overall it was a great event! Here’s a few photos to enjoy from the event.

Jagger Eaton had a hot weekend at the 2014 PHX Am, landing himself a 5th place overall. Out of 200 competitors, the climb to the finals was no easy task. Enough said, below is a look at his qualifying run which will leave you speechless. Also great job to all the other KTR riders who were out there shredding, Jett Eaton, Kyle Adams, Alana Smith, Shane Short.
