WHAT IS THE SUN DIEGO AM SLAM?

The Am Slam is an amateur skateboarding contest series, designed to give local skateboarders an arena to compete in and an opportunity to excel. The Am Slam is a points-based series, which means skaters will work to accumulate points all summer and those with the highest points will advance to the Finals event. Although there will be some great prizes and trophies given out to top placing skaters at each stop, it is the overall winner of the series that will take home $5,000!

Our last event will be our largest this year! It will be a huge, two day surf and skate festival with a huge

vendor tent city, 5 grand up for grabs, & it will be double points rated!

Saturday June 27th – PQ Skate Park

Sunday July 26th – Carmel Valley Skate Park

WHO CAN ENTER?

Everyone! There are 4 separate divisions at every stop. They are:

Ages 13 and under

Ages 14-16

Ages 17 and older

PRO/AM (All ages of Advanced Skill Level)

Anyone can enter the Pro-Am if you think you have the skills. The Pro-Am Division will award the biggest prizes! Keep in mind, your accumulated points will remain within your division, so if you decide to enter your age division AND the Pro-Am, it is perfectly legal, but your points from the 2 Divisions are not added together.

HOW DO I REGISTER?

Each participant can either pre-register at sundiego.com or if there is still room left in your division on the day of the contest, you may be able to register on-site the day of. However, pre-registering on the website is your best bet for getting in the contest as there are a limited number of spots available per division.

HOW MUCH IS THE ENTRY FEE?

The early entry fee for the Am divisions is $20 and $50 for the Pro-Am. Day of entry fees are $30 for the Am divisions and $60 for the Pro-Am.

EVENT TIMES

IMPORTANT: You MUST check in on-site ONE HOUR prior to your Division start time. Even if you pre-registered on the Sun Diego website, you still must check in and sign a waiver on the day of the contest. EVERYONE UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST HAVE A PARENT’S SIGNATURE ON THE WAIVER. You can download and print a waiver in advance from www.sundiego.com. You still need to arrive one hour prior to your division start-time.

Each division will last about an hour and a half beginning with a jam format (two 10-minute jams of 20 skaters each) and ending with 10 finalists advancing from the jams and skating in one-minute runs each. Each top 10 skater will get 2 runs.

POINTS SYSTEM

Each contestant in each division will earn points at every contest, even if you don’t place. Your points will be totaled up from every contest you enter and the 30 skaters with the most points in their Division will be invited to skate in the AmSlam Finals. Keep in mind, you don’t necessarily have to skate in every event to be the points leader in your division. In fact, it is perfectly possible to skate in just ONE event and still make the top 30 for the finals!

The Points totals will be posted on www.sundiego.com after each event so you can always log on to see where you stand.
