Dashawn Jordan’s SLS Unsanctioned Cinderella Story



From bodied to bringing home the trophy, Dashawn Jordan‘s SLS Unsanctioned 3 win is one to remember. After (in his words) getting Mario Karted by a waxy rail in the very first run of the competition, Jordan dusted himself off and came through in the individual trick round with a front 270 lip, 360 flip 50-50 that locked perfectly onto that round rail, and a bigger spin flip front board. There was a little touch on the floor with that last one, which has some fans grumbling, but it was enough to impress the judges. Other highlights were Manny Santiago‘s 9 Club-worthy big heel boardslide, Vincent Milou‘s kickflip front tail with almost too much air over the hubba, and Gabriel Fortunato‘s magnificent hardflip.

This more casual competition was held in Miami’s Skatebird Skatepark and featured an all-women panel of judges – Aori Nishimura, Leticia Bufoni, and Rayssa Leal. The lineup was full of more familiar faces including Kelvin Hoefler, Lucas Rabelo, Felipe Gustavo, Dominick Walker, Trent McClung, and Carlos Ribeiro. Watch the full broadcast above.

New Yorker Wins Damn Am NYC



Nicholas Ramos of Bronx, New York wins the Damn Am NYC on September 10.

His win gets him a straight shot to the Tampa Am semi-finals which will be held on on November 13.

Ramos has been participating in Am contests for several years now. His other big wins include the Boardr Open NYC 2021 and 2022 where he finished first and second respectively.

Tyler Kirshenbaum of Jacksonville Beach, Florida came in at second place while Damn Am LA and Amsterdam winner Daiki Ikeda from Tokyo, Japan finished third in the competition. Cordano Russel won the SKNDL Best Trick contest.

Since Daiki Ikeda previously won two Damn Ams this year, he also has a straight shot to the Tampa Am Semi-Finals. The rest of the top 12 automatically qualify for the Tampa Am Saturday Qualifiers on November 12.

Instagram will load in the frontend.

A global amateur skateboarding contest series, Damn Am NYC is the third of the Damn Am series for this year. It serves as a pathway to Tampa Am. Over 10,000 skaters, some of them now top pros, have participated in the event since its inception in 2001.

The year’s last stop for the Damn Am series will be on September 23-25 at the Murakami City Skatepark, Murakami, Japan. Damn Am Japan will have Men’s and Women’s disciplines. Registration is now open.

To qualify for Damn Am, a skater must meet any ONE of the following criteria:

  • Prior participation in Damn Am / Tampa Am events
  • Support and backing of established industry brands
  • Footage showing ability and skill that we think could be potentially enough to place in the top 12

Those who did not qualify for the Tampa Am via the Damn Am can still get their shot through the Last Chance Open to be held on Friday, November 11. Interested participants may register via this link.
