Posted on Thursday, January 24, 2019 by Chris

This year's Clash of the Crews was the biggest turnout ever, with 30 crews battling it out for the top spot and $2,000 courtesy of Vans. In true SPoT fashion, we added a Best Trick and Concrete Jam to the mix...coverage of that coming soon. In the meantime, check out some photos from the day.
