April 4, 2014 — Skateboarding aficionados from throughout the Phoenix metro and the southwest have the opportunity to both see some outstanding exhibitions of skill but to party like a skate-god.
The 13th Annual PHXAM, April 5 and 6, organized by Cowtown Skateboards and presented by Vans will feature more than 200 of the top amateur skateboarders from around the globe. Activities will begin Saturday at 9 a.m. and Sunday at 10 a.m. at Desert West Skateboard Plaza, 6602 W. Encanto Blvd., Phoenix. Tickets are a meager $5. The first 500 attendees each day will receive a free T-shirt.
The PHXAM “after party” will begin at 7 p.m. at the Pressroom — formerly the Madison Event Center, 441 W. Madison Street, Phoenix. Tickets are $17 and will be available at the venue on Saturday for $20. Death is the headliner
Organizers suggest purchasing tickets for both events at any Cowtown location.
All competitors for the contest are nationally sponsored and among the best in world. The Best Trick Contest includes $2500 purse. The first-place winner for the contest will receive $3,000.
Saturday will get started with qualifiers in a “jam” format: four riders, three minutes broken into heats with the top 40 moving on to the semi-finals. The rider in first place receives a “golden ticket” to finals.
Sunday, the semi-final round will also be conducted in the jam format with the top 11 moving on. In the finals, each rider gets three, one-minute runs.
For those that cannot make it to the event, there will be a live webcast on Sunday of the semi-finals and finals — as well as best trick. To view the webcast, visit www.PHXAM.com.
