Skaters from Austria to Australia put it down in Barcy trying to make a 30 cut to Semis. Guess what, they slayed. Then everyone went mental for Best Trick and Angelo Caro cab flipped to back lip down the handrail.
Imagine your fantasy city, with spots everywhere, amazing people, rad scenery, non-stop parties, etc. and you’re just scratching the surface of what Barcelona serves up in real life every single day. Oh, and a legendary skatepark right on the beach. The Damn Am is already going off, and it’s just practice.
Damn Am and Nike SB set their sights on the next stop of the tour: Barcelona! Skate Agora BDN Barcelona June 22-24, 2018… The top 10 skaters will qualify to skate Tampa Am
Back in May the Santa Cruz squad went to Damn AM at ETN in LA. It was the first time they opened their doors to the public for a skate event and it was one of the best Damn Am’s to date. The whole crew ripped and our dude Maurio McCoy took home the win. Check the video to see everyone ripping and to see Maurio McCoy’s winning run. Ps. Don’t worry Mateo, one of these days you’ll learn how to grip a skateboard 😂😂😂
In addition to packing his run with the most insanely difficult tricks, Sora made it easy for the judges by doing it all flawlessly. He also locked up his spot in the Tampa Am Semi-Finals. Sora!
Qualifiers and the Independent Best Trick contest at Damn Am Japan could both be summed up with two words: Daisuke Ikeda!
The Finals usually comes down to the last few runs with the winner barely edging out 2nd place. Not this time. After Maurio McCoy’s last run there wasn’t any doubt he’d won it, and he gets a spot in the Tampa Am Semi-Finals for his efforts.
The Qualifiers are all about making the top 30 cut to the Semis. Someone forgot to tell these dudes that it wasn’t already the Finals. Aaaaaand the Muska came out to check it.
ETN Studios opens up their course for the first Damn Am of 2018. And here’s a taste of the 150 registered skaters with a sampling of how good the actual contest will be.
