Sun Diego will be holding the grand finale of the AM SLAM Surf and Skate series at Belmont Park in Mission Beach, Saturday and Sunday, September 24th and 25th. The final AM SLAM contest is the single largest surf and skate event in the city of San Diego. Put on from partnerships with O'Neill and Vans for surf and skate respectively, the fourth and final event of the series will be a huge Surf, Skate and Music Festival. The surf and skate contest will pit competitors against one another with an eye on the collective leader board, as winners of the last stop will accumulate double points to add to their overall standings for a chance at the $5,000 grand prize in both the surf and skate Pro-Am divisions. Belmont Park provides an idealistic backdrop to the event and a custom designed skate course by Keen Ramps will ensure a world class display of both surfing and skating.
For only the second time in Sun Diego AM SLAM's 9 year history, both the surf and skate finals will be held together along with a huge array of brands spanning the action sports scene. Brands including Vans, O'Neill, Stance, Vissla, RVCA, Bones, Electric, Spy, Avasin, Nixon, Creatures of Leisure, Surface, Reef, Captain Fin and over 30 other brands will come together to assemble a massive vendor tent city with tons of prizes and giveaways for all in attendance.
To add extra drama to the finale the last event is double points rated, meaning the top spot is wide open for most of the divisions. The overall winners for the entire series (points have been collected over the previous three events) will be crowned the season champion and will take home tons of prizes from the series sponsors with the Pro-Am winners of both the surf and skate event walking away with a huge $5,000 payday! Divisions for both the surf and skate event are as follows:
Saturday the 24th will feature the Pro-Am which is open to the most advanced competitors.
Sunday the 25th will host the women's all ages division, boys 13-under, 14-16 and the 17 and over division.
Saturday the 24th will feature the boys 13 and under and 14-16 divisions.
