Volcom x Sun Diego AM SLAM Skate Event 3 : Melba Bishop
The Volcom x Sun Diego AM SLAM Skate Event 3 went down Saturday at Oceanside's Melba Bishop Skatepark. Beneath the baking Ovenside sun, crowds of home park rippers and traveling talent skated for a chance at some cash.

No time was wasted getting onto the long rail. Sneaker envy was in full effect as Tanner Lawler rode a front feeble in the Nike CK1s.

Too much heat!

Straight no-comply off the top rope was looking promising.
Some unfortunate trends were spotted in the spectator zone. Everything is a cycle. Swishy pants, XXL t-shirts and more bearing covers coming to Sun Diego Summer '16.

Cam Sedlik repped HUF and tore the park in two with back smiths, boosted backside airs and some unexpected launches off the nipple.
Brian Abraham took the camo shorts to heart and annihilated Melba Bishop with a flawless ATV final run. This stylish backside flip finished things off.

Adding up the points.
