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!
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
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.
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!
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.
In case you missed the Instagram LIVE with Indy Riders Jake Wooten and Kader Sylla at Tampa Am this year, here’s a recap. Good revs, and insane skateboarding–Safe to say the 24th Annual Tampa Am at the Skatepark of Tampa was a hit!
