This year’s In Transition winner, and consistent contest contender, Willy Lara is no stranger to pressure. Or adapting to crazy bowls in unfamiliar atmospeheres: we’re still impressed by young Willy’s ability to look ultra-comfortable whether he skating in front of a crowd of thousands or just with his homies in Moorpark. Willy? Yes, he will.
