It’s been a long time coming, but the Nike SB Damn Am series has finally made it to Australia. Mona Vale Skatepark and Sydney turned it on with both the weather and 3 days of wild skateboarding delivered by some of the best amateurs from this neck of the woods. The standard of this new breed of all-rounders makes the future of Australian skateboarding look like it’s in good hands… and feet.

The standard was amazing, vibes were high and the following humans have all qualified to skate in the Tampa Am finals in November:
