UPDATE: Nyjah Huston Wins 2020 Tampa Pro Contest



With the Tokyo Games in jeopardy, and the points and rankings as confusing as ever, it may be a good time to start focusing on skateboarding’s more traditional contests. It doesn’t get more historic than Tampa Pro. The 26th annual battle-royal style event is happing at the Skatepark of Tampa this weekend. It’s now sponsored by Monster Energy instead of Nike SB, and appears to be unsanctioned by the Olympics. Tune into the live webcast all weekend. We’ll update with the results tomorrow.

UPDATE 03.01.20: Congratulations to Nyjah Huston who won the second Tampa Pro of his career. View the full list of results below.

UPDATE 03.01.20: Watch the highlights from yesterday below. Today’s contest starts at 11:45am Eastern Time. You can steam it via the above link.


Lazer Crawford Wins Damn Am LA



Lazer Crawford landed first place in Damn Am LA, securing a straight shot to the semi-finals in this year’s Tampa Am.

Toa Sasaki, Malachi Gray, Abner Prieto, Taiga Nagai, Cole Wayka, Junnosuke Hasegawa, Koston Eaton, Sena Watanabe, Matty Jessee, Yuki Sawashima, and Nobi Villalobos made it to the top 12. They will automatically qualify for the Tampa Am Saturday Qualifier.

A global amateur skateboarding contest series, Damn Am is 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.

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

Held at The Berrics, Damn Am LA is the first of the series this year. The next stops will be in Murakami, Japan (June 9-11); Breda, Netherlands (July 12-14); and New York City (September 8-9).

The 29th Tampa Am will be held on October 12-15, 2023, at the Skatepark of Tampa.

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, October 13.

Visit the Skate Park of Tampa website for more details about the Damn Am.
