World Record Highest Ollie broken by Aldrin Garcia

The Maloof High Ollie Challenge final held in Palms Resort and Casino, Las Vegas yesterday welcomed a new 45″ World Record Ollie from yet another Powell rider Aldrin Garcia.

The competition ran throughout January with 15 skate shops hosting local high ollie comps with the winner from each reaching the semi-finals on Monday. Yesterday’s finals brought a new World Record which is half an inch higher than Danny Wainwright and Luis Tolentino’s 44.5″ World Record ollies and made Garcia $10,000 richer.
