This past Saturday July 16th, one of the most important crews to come out of the 90’s celebrated their 22 years of history in San Jose, California. Style Elements 22 year Ann. marked the 14th stop of 2016 for the Pro Breaking Tour and it was memorable one. Easily one of the best stops of the year as the tour keeps getting better and better!
#SEC22 (official hashtag of the event) featured a 3 vs 3 breakin competition for $3,600 1st place, $1,500 2nd place, $750.00 3rd place and $375.00 for 4th. That’s a total of $6,225.00 in cash distribution for the 4 finalist. While the cash prize was a great treat, it seemed like everyone came out for the celebration. DJ’s Quantum, Bles One and SEC’s own Bboy Crumbs gave the event great vibes from the get go.
With Style Elements being such a respected crew, it was a given that bboys from across the world would come out to support and represent. Bboys from countries such as Russia, Japan, Venezuela, Canada, Mexico, and more came out to be part of the festivities. With so much talent in the building, it was not going to be an easy task for the assigned judges. The 5 competition judges were: Naytron (Renegades) – Beta (Heartbreakerz) – Mike the Cure (Knuckleheads Cali) – House (Furious Styles) and last but not least Ben (Knucklehead Zoo). In total 70+ crews signed up for the battles. World class bboys means world class crews and #SEC22 had plenty of world class crews to choose from. Some of the most recognizable names were Full Force, Battle Born, Monster Bboys, Furious Styles, Knucklehead Zoo, Floorgangs, and Underground Flow just to name a few.
