Lucas Rabelo only does the hardest tricks, and he put them all together in the Finals at Damn Am NYC to skate away with the win. As an added bonus he’s also going straight to the Semi-Finals at Tampa Am. Yeah Brazil!
The only question left after Friday’s Practice at LES would be…if this is just practice, how crazy are the Finals going to be?
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!
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.
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 😂😂😂
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.
