Des Moines skateboarders showed off their gnarly moves at unexpected places, including downtown buildings and warehouses.

Driving the news: A Des Moines team won this year's Red Bull DIY Skateboard contest, officials announced this week.

  • It's a winter competition that incorporates less-than-optimal skating weather.
  • Nine Midwest teams competed this year. Their prize is a three-day trip to Los Angeles.

The team: Logan Cook, Conor Patterson, Connor Barrett and Mirza Jasarovic.
