Instagram will load in the frontend.

Damn Am Japan is rescheduled for September 23-25 at the Murakami City Skatepark. It was initially set for August 5-7 but had to be moved because of COVID restrictions in the country.

Unlike the other legs of the series, Damn Am Japan will have men’s and women’s disciplines.

The top 12 men automatically qualify for Tampa Am Saturday Qualifier and the winner will receive $500 and a straight shot to the Tampa Am Semi-Finals.

The top 6 women automatically qualify for the 2023 SPoT Women’s Open and the winner will receive $500.

Meanwhile, the New York leg of the series will push through as scheduled on September 9-10 at the LES Coleman Oval Skatepark.

Daiki Ikeda won in the first two Damn Am events held in LA and the Netherlands.

The Damn Am is a global amateur skateboarding contest series that serves as the pathway to Tampa Am. Over 10,000 skaters have participated in Damn Am events since its inception in 2001 including most of today’s top pros. 

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

Registration is now open for both the New York and Japan legs of the series.

The Tampa Am will be held on November 10-13 at the Skatepark of Tampa. Those who did not qualify for this event via the Damn Am can still try their luck via the “Last Chance Open” on November 11. Interested participants must register here. They must meet certain criteria set by the organizers to be accepted.

Guinness World Record Awards Leticia Bufoni Two Record Certificates

Published

on

The Guinness World Records recently awarded Leticia Bufoni two titles -the most medals by a female in a Summer X Games discipline, and the most gold medal in Women’s Street.

The Brazilian-American skater has 12 X Games medals so far with six golds, three silvers, and three bronzes in a span of more than a decade. Five out of the six golds are for the Women’s Street discipline.

She first achieved her X Games medal in 2010 when she won silver in the Women’s Street event. She got her first gold in X Games Foz do Iguacu in 2013. Bufoni’s first appearance in the X Games was in 2007 when she was just 14 years old.

She was first awarded the title for most medals won in X Games summer disciplines (female) in June 2019 after receiving her 11th medal. She has also held the record for most Skateboard Street gold medals won at the X Games (female) together with Elissa Steamer since 2019. Her fifth gold in 2021 means that she is the sole title holder now.

She competed again in this year’s Summer X Games Women’s Street, the day after she received her Guinness certificate. This time, the gold medal went to the Tokyo Summer Olympics Street Skateboarding gold medalist Momiji Nishiya.
