Dustin Blauvelt won the Am event they had. He got a watch and a cup for that. They have rules like "am contests don't have money being paid" but then they go and let Alex Mizurov, an am, skate in the pro eS Game of SKATE and let Chris Mendes skate in both pro and am events during the weekend.

There needs to be clear lines between pros and ams and events like this sure don't help
