Sun Diego, Vans shoes, and Monster energy drinks present the AM SLAM contest series. The first stop was the Clairemont, California YMCA. There was a great turn out with packed heats in 13 and under and the Pro-Am Open division. With 1,000 dollars total prize purse up for grabs in the Pro-Am Open division, the heat was on. Oddly enough David Cobb was killing it but had to leave before his second run and fell out of contention for the win. In the end, it was Diego Najera who took home the first place and $500. TransWorld gave away a prize pack for the "Trick of the Day" to Derek Elmendorf. Check out the results below the video. The next stop will be the Encinitas YMCA on October 24th. Thanks go out to Sun Diego, Vans, Monster and TransWorld.—Words, photos, & video by Joe Picciolo
