He took 4th in Paris and now in Sweden wins the main event, The Tight Slalom, taking away the title from current Italian and World Champion Tight Slalom racer - Luca Giammarco.

Josh Harmony is almost done with a Skateboarder interview.
Hailing from the salty flats of Utah, Lizard came down outta the shadows for some heavy shredding (at least that's what he told me). Lizard has the best excitement level and raw energy. His genuine love for skateboarding has helped him grow into a super star skateboarder since the days of Hellrose, and he has received acclaim for wild stunts all over the Southwestern United States. His part in Slaughterhouse was his first ever, and it was the perfect platform for him to show his skills. His part mixed everything from tough guy rail chomping to technical tricks and everything inbetween. Lizard lives everywhere: Phoenix, Vegas, LA, SD and SLC. If you're lucky enough to spot him in your town, run up to him and tell him to get on with the Green Room kid.
