This year’s installment of the Nike SbA Am Series Finals was a hotly anticipated event. Held in Melbourne on the last Saturday of March, over forty incredible skateboarders came together to show off their skills. Jim Dandy, Ben Harriss, Kurt Winter and last year’s Open Am Champ Mr. Sam Tran were judges on the day.
Keanu Peina won the Junior Championship – a super smiley, obviously stoked fourteen year old from Queensland. Ryder Lawson was crowned the Australian Open Amateur Champion. The fifteen year old from New South Wales was one of the youngest qualified riders in the division which makes his win particularly remarkable. It was a memorable day of world class skating.
