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.
Damn Ams Finals are amazing everywhere we go. So what about Japan? Maybe the AMAZINGEST.
Qualifiers and the Independent Best Trick contest at Damn Am Japan could both be summed up with two words: Daisuke Ikeda!
Straight up, the talent level of the kids skating the Higashi-Shizuoka Skatepark for Damn Am Japan can only be matched by how amazingly awesome the entire Japanese scene is. Check it!
The Finals at ETN Studios were one of the best to date, with the top 12 skaters of the weekend going all out. And the ending? Well you’re going to have to see it to believe it.
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.
Ready for another ripping year of Damn Am? We are…and we’re bringing the Amateur Skateboarding Series to some new spots around the globe, including Japan and Barcelona. So buy a plane ticket and join us in LA for the kickoff at ETN Studios April 27-29, presented by Nike SB.
