We were impressed by the caliber of skaters at the PHXAM competition. This wasn't just a handful of local skateboarders competing for a title. Sponsored skateboarders from around the world competed, and some of skateboarding's largest media outlets including Thrasher and Skateboarder Magazine were on hand to capture the action.

All of the competitors were young men. The youngest rider that we saw was Jagger Eaton, of Mesa. This 13-year-old already has a variety of sponsors and took fifth place in the competition.

Matt Berger of Kamloops, Canada, was the big winner of the event, walking away with $3,000.
