More Gnar… @ PHX AM 2012

The 11th Annual 3 Day PHX AM contest is held every year in lovely Arizona. Every year, all the homies would plan trips to skate & film AZ spots while in the area during the contest. Friday is the practice day. Saturday were the Qualifiers. Saturday Night was the After Party. And Sunday were the Finals & Best Trick Contest.
Here is a photo recap from the practice & qualifier days.
I left the finals for the guys at Thrasher to cover, so there aren’t any photos here from that.

*Also check out photos from the PHX AM AFTER PARTY!
