The world’s top amateur skateboarders will unite in Phoenix on Saturday April 2nd for Qualifiers. The top 40 from Day 1 will advance to the Semi-Finals to battle it out for over $8,500 in cash and prizes! Immediately following the Finals, all participants will be eligible to skate in the Red Bull Best Trick Contest for a chance at $2,500 cash! PHXAM will begin at 10am Saturday, with a LIVE webcast Sunday right here at PHXAM.com
Saturday night KR3W presents the official PHXAM After Party at The Pressroom in Phoenix. Starting at 8pm, doors open to local sounds and smells featuring a local mariachi band with taco trucks and beer carts. Arctic, a band made of Pro Skateboarders Figgy and Nuge will then take over the stage before a quick intermission in the music to premiere the new Pyramid Country promo video. Finally, as an encore, KR3W brings Ghostface Killah to the stage for a full set to round off a night of insane fun in downtown Phoenix.

The level of skating continues to escalate each year and this past weekend these guys handled Desert West and the new props with ease while battling it out for the $8,500 cash purse. In the end it was Jack Olson taking 1st place overall and Phoenix’s own Dashawn Jordan winning the $2,500 Red Bull Best Trick.
Only 12 will move onto the Finals, and with Tyson Bowerbank already holding the Golden Ticket from qualifying first, that means only the top 11 shown here will be moving on to the Finals. Check out the line up for the Finals Runs here!
