King of the Groms & Ams Contest at Skatelab – February 2015

UPDATE: We had another successful King of the Groms / King of the Ams weekend. We were stoked to see 2 of our local rippers take home the top honors. Pat Cannon won King of the Groms and Julian Hooda wins King of the Ams. We also had an even bigger turnout than last year and overall it was a weekend of cool Kids and great Skateboarding. Thank you 3rd Lair Skatepark for putting on such a fun event. We are already looking forward to next year. See you at the finals!
