The Vans x Sun Diego AM SLAM Skateboard Contest Series
Announcing the 2019 AM SLAM Skateboard Contest Series Presented by Vans! Get all the event info here.
|The 2019 AM SLAM SKATE SERIES has been revamped and is now offering up two high quality events with custom obstacles, more money and bigger prizes! The first stop was at the California Training Facility on July 20th and featured a custom hubba obstacle as the main focus of the event and a bigger $2,500 prize purse in the Pro-Am.
The second stop will be at Belmont Park on Saturday September 14th featuring a custom course with a replica of three iconic skate spots. It'll be tough to beat last years mashup of San Diego's three iconic locations of Rincon, Carlsbad Gap and the Chain To Bank, but we've decided to pay homage to three legendary SF spots and it's safe to say things are going to get buck! Featuring the legendary SF State rail (the Pat Duffy kink rail), Hubba Hideout and the massive Wallenberg 4, this best trick style contest is going to be one for the ages with a whopping $5,000 prize purse in the Pro-AM.
WHAT IS THE SUN DIEGO AM SLAM?
The Am Slam is an amateur skateboarding contest series, designed to give local skateboarders an arena to compete in and an opportunity to excel. The new 2 stop series for 2019 is now winner takes all at each stop and points are no longer accumulated for the entire series. Our last event will be our largest this year! It will be a huge surf and skate festival with a huge vendor tent city, $5,000 up for grabs in the best trick contest!
