It is a widely known fact that Austin Smith’s first pro model featured graphics inspired by death metal band 3 Inches of Blood. The only thing three inches will earn Austin at America’s Next Top Pro Model is a disappointing repeat of his 2007 X Games slopestyle performance where the dude got dead f-in last. Austin usually avoids lift lines in favor of tree lines, but after spending most of last winter recovering from a knee injury a little ANTPM competition might be just what the doctor ordered.
