Volcom Damn Am & Holy Stokes! Premiere

Volcom Damn Am Best Trick Recap

This past weekend at the Volcom Headquarters in Costa Mesa, California, Volcom held the annual Damn Am and Best Trick competition at their private skatepark. Best trick took place Friday evening with Volcom deciding to challenge everyone with a deadly shootout rail off the 7 stair. With roughly 30 skaters battling to hit the rail and the hubba’s at one time, board and bodies were flying everywhere. Right off the bat it was easy to see who would be in the top 5 with the tricks they were throwing down. Danny Gordon came in hot at 5th place with a hang 10 backside tailslide bigspin down the hubba, John Oskvarek got 4th with a board slide frontside flip out on the shoot out rail. The top three spots were taken by Robert Neal with a crook nollie flip on the shoot rail securing him 3rd, Brodie Penrod got 2nd with crook nollie tre on the rail and Maurice Jordan landed the top spot with a switch front blunt shuv on the shoot out rail making him the Damn Am Best trick winner for 2016.
