Matador Recap: Nike Damn Am Huntington Beach Finals Photos

Here’s a recap brought to you by Matador of today’s finals of the Nike Damn Am from Huntington Beach. Based on the level of skating it was hard to tell this was an am contest. The future is looking bright with guys like Carlos Ribeiro, Alex Midler, Alec Majerus, Filipe Ortiz, Jon Cosentino, and Oscar Meza keeping standards high in 2012. In the end there was no stopping Dylan Witkin’s relentless assault on the course, as he took the top spot despite puking mid sesh. The best trick contest was straight up gnarly too, with Sebo Walker taking it with a 360 shove-it Smith grind down the hubba. Have a look at the gallery below and check out the final standings under the gallery.
