Six of the 12 skaters who made Finals in Chicago were former Damn Am winners. But everyone killed it and was in the running until the very last runs. You’ll see.
Marcos did his only kickflip front crook of the weekend when it counted most, in the Finals. And in addition to skating away with the win he goes straight to the Semi-Finals at Tampa Am. Yeah Marcos!
It’s the last SPoT All Ages contest before you go back to school, and it’s also one of the hottest.
If you’re a ripping amateur skateboarder it’s never too early to start planning your annual pilgrimage to Tampa Am. And it’s probably never to early to start planning your run either. Because 250 of the best and hungriest ams in the world will be descending on SPoT once again, November 8-11, for their chance to join skaters like Donny Barley, Nyjah Huston, and Luan Oliveira on the all time winners list. And not only that, 2018 marks the Silver Anniversary of Tampa Am, that’s 25 years (!), so even if you’re not trying to skate it you should come celebrate with us. Registration is open now at SPoTTampa.com/TampaAm

SPoT, Westside Skateshop and Nike SB teamed up this year for Go Skateboarding Day, and skills paid off (literally) with $2,000 in cash for tricks being given away. As a bonus, joined by Blake Carpenter, who got everyone hyped up from the Bro Bowl to Skatepark of Tampa. Check out the recap.
See if you can spot the exact moment that Jorge sealed the deal on his win. Either way he killed it and got €3000 and a spot in the Tampa Am Semi-Finals. Yeah Jorge!
The only thing possibly better than the views, the people, the parties and everything else rad in Barcelona was the level of skateboarding in the Finals. And Brazil, Portugal, and Japan went berserk in the battle for top three. Check it!
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.
Skatepark of Tampa got some of the park homies together for an after session to take the new adidas 3ST.001 shoes for a test drive. From the looks of it, they made the cut.
It turns out that street skating is about the most illegal thing you can do in Japan. But the SPoT Crew tried. Plus a grip of footage from the contest that you didn’t already see.
