Manny Santiago covers the last stop of the year for DAMN AM for 2018 in New York City.
SPoT’s house photographer Bowser tagged along on this year’s NYC trip and put together some raw iPhone edits from the contest and a little bit of street skating with the squad. Check it.
With the entire contest going down in one day at LES, it was non-stop shredding from start to finish, and Lucas Rabelo got his first win in STYLE. And then Independent Best Trick flew completely off the rails. Best day ever!
Pros hate the Damn Am because every one of the kids skating it are coming for ‘em. Chicago Qualifiers went OFF, and then Lucas Rabelo shut it down in best trick… but of course he did.
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!
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
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.
