BEACH BUMS BOARDSHOPS 1st ANNUAL JUNKYARD JAM
As the Lincoln peeled into the parking lot, the skate hungry crowd was unaware of what the vehicle had instore for them. The event took place on Saturday Sept. 16th at Canyon High School across the street from Beach Bums Boardshops in Anaheim Hills. The day started off with an amateur game of skate sponsored by éS Shoes, followed by a 1 hour rail jam with a $10,000 purse for the top 3 winners. Amongst free hot dogs from DC Shoes, snow cones from Volcom, and Polaroid pictures at the Nixon booth, Beach Bums had top professional skaters from Billy Marks to Braydon Szafranski entered in the contest.
The crew at 4 Down did it again by customizing the Lincoln Towncar to perfection with 2 flatbars and a bench on the hood. Billy Marks jumped off to a early lead landing a kickflip boardslide, and a nollie boardslide. As the event was coming to a close, it looked like we had a definite winner. Then out of nowhere Justin Brock landed a front blunt and then tre flipped the whole car to take it home with two minutes left turning the event upside down. As time ran up judges Oliver Flores ( Nike SB/Deluxe ), John Francis ( Ambiguous ), and Scuba Steve ( éS ) came to a final tally…
First Place, $7,500, Justin Brock
Second Place, $2,000, Billy Marks
Third Place, $500, Malcom Watson
