Our last AM SLAM event went down this Saturday at Melba Bishop Skatepark in Oceanside. As usual, we had the contest broken down to 4 divisions: 13 & under, 14-16, 17 & up, and the Pro-Am. Each contestant hustled through their jam session, doing their best to make it to the finals of their division where each finalist attempted to show off their skills in two one minute runs. During the contest participants and spectators enjoyed a lunch on Senor Grubby’s and scored prizes & giveaways from Red Bull, Mophie, and Stance. The Pro-Am heat was definitely the most intense with the largest group of skaters competing for a piece of the $1,700 prize purse. In the end, previous Pro-Am winner Brendon Villanueva took home the chedda- $1,000 check! Not too shabby for a day of skateboarding.
A huge thanks to our sponsors, participants, and spectators who came out and made this another successful skate contest! We hope to see you all again next AM SLAM season.
