If I had to come up with a metaphor for Markus Jalaber’s skating, it would be Amish whipped homemade churned butter … yeaaa real smooth.
If you know Jake Wooten’s skating you know he’s maniac. If you saw him at the contest you know he’s a maniac… in otherwords, he’s a fuckin’ MANIAC!!!
Classic game of catch and release. Eli Williams knows the reel.
Open up the door, sailin’ all four, all you heard was Niko don't love ya no mo!!

If you’re a total idiot and have no sense for sarcasm, the Thanks For Nothing award actually means thanks for something yuh dummy!! This one goes to Jona - owner of Hazard County Skatepark. Thanks for lettin’ us hold this shindig at your pad!!
Next Thanks For Nothing award goes to Bilingual Lensman, Matt Hudson.
Last TFN award goes to Phillip, Jake Wooten’s uncle. I don’t know much about the guy but I guess he’s like hella cool n’ junk.
Eli Williams won the Bronson Speed Ring award. I think that means he goes like dumm fast; and that he does. Dead giveaway. Look him up!
Yeaaaaa we could have each podium placer have their own lil’ dorky personal photo but we said aye forget about it!! Lets get the whole crew up here!!! If you made it this far I’m assuming you already know that Eli Williams got 3rd, Niko Howard got 2nd, and Jereme Knibbs most definitely got 1st but just in case not; this is me telling you right now! Yuh dig!?
But no seriously... a special congrats to Jereme Knibbs on getting dat 1st place spot. This is only the first stop of six Damn Ams this summer and if stop one is any implication of how things are gonna go, it will be beyond epic!!!
