After a slight delay due to faulty internet in Brighton, here is the second part of Kevin Parrott’s blog from this years Volcom AmsterDamn Am comp – the third and final part to follow shortly…
Snap and captions by KP.
DJ Wade switching to iPod playlist between heats and catching some Z's. Did you know he is Stefan Attardo's brother?
Simo Makela. Fin #2. For this blog - not in 'cool guy' order...Otherwise he'd be #1. Sorry Eniz.
Our own Kris Vile and the Volcom photographer Jelle Keppens. Vile wishes he could grow a mustache like that.
The course. Every year it is amazing. Every year they better the last.
Lintell doing the Earl and Mossman taking a breather after a hectic run. Nice boardslide transfer, dude.
Jelle again, this time with Jake Smith the US team manager. He's secretly better than everyone you know at skateboarding.
Jelle and Peter Molec. Peter is from the Czech Republic and skates switch really well. Who'd have thunk it? He also cut a mean mustache for the Sunday. Czech him out.
Nihilist killed it at the party on Saturday. So much so that they came back and played during the best trick contest. Thrash metal and skateboarding going bananas together. That's how it should be. http://www.myspace.com/nihilistmetalcom
Best trick crowdage. I got a good spot on top of a bench. The people behind me didn't.
Waiting for the winner.
Adam Moss won some loot in best trick for a boardslide 270 shove it transfer thingy. It was quite mental, really.
...But the Aussie Keiran Reilly won that little contest with a kickflip over the barrier to frontside lipslide down the side of the bank. Original lines paying off.
