The etnies AM Getting Paid Qualifier was in
Saturday (June 26th) at the Forks plaza. This is by far the largest skate
All the local skaters are very diverse in their abilities to skate
everything in front of them, which definitely really impressed me.
Another great aspect that's really cool about the
how tight everyone is together! Everybody is down to skate and party
together and have a good time. I really enjoyed the vibe!
So Friday when I looked at the forecast things weren't looking to
good for us but we all stayed positive and prayed for the weather to hold
off. And it did! The rain came down literally 10 minutes after the contest
was done. We were blessed.
With the jam format this year we get to see a lot of tricks in a
very small amount of time. Some of my favorite tricks of the day were; BS
360 down the big 3 by Austin Thomas, Switch Varial heel down the big three
by Jamie Mospanchuk and watching Colin Lambert breaking 5 boards!!!!. At the
end of the day everybody was ripping but we can only have one winner and
that guys name is Jamie Mospanchuck! He had a super good intro run and
hammered out lots of super tech tricks in the jam portion of the run!
Check out the pictures for now, the video will be up shortly!
Big up to the Sk8 Skate crew, Genico and Mark, Dj footwear for the good
tunes all day, and mark for doing a super good job holding down the mic all
I had a blast in
