Volcom Stone presents The AmsterDamn Am 2011

Brian Shaefer and Rob Meronek created the Damn Am series as they noticed that there was a need to bring the Tampa-style Am contests to skateboarders outside of Tampa (Florida). If you can’t get into Tampa Am directly through your sponsor, entering a Damn Am is the only official way to qualify for the prestigious Tampa Am. Basically the “flavour” of the Tampa contests is taken to locations around the world.
AmsterDamn Am today is one of the major European skateboard competitions with its level of skateboarding. It gathers the top European and US up and coming skaters into a three-day event of skating, friendship, and good times so make sure you get you involved! With the latest comp coming up soon you’ll have to move quick!
