It was a real surprise at PHX AM. After a long day of qualifiers, the last jam of the day was with Robbie Brockel. As soon as his run started, they announced him pro then & there with everybody holding up posters & his pro boards for REAL SKATEBOARDS. We happened to be there to witness it!
A trip to Arizona is a must every year. Packed the van with the Active homies and headed east through the desert for an epic trip. Cowtown‘s finest, The PHX Am is an annual trip I always look forward to going to. There were many contestants and a good amount of Active Ride Shop team riders in the contest. It didn’t matter if you win or lose, it was more about having fun & skateboarding. The after parties were always held with some great headlining bands and this year, The Black Lips played, which I heard many great things about them live. Ended the day on Sunday for the finals & best trick contest.
For Spring Break I decided to pack my bags and take a road trip down to Phoenix, AZ to show some love and support for our boys on the Active AM team at Phx AM. After a long 6 hour drive, I was greeted by 95 degree weather and beautiful skies. AZ showed me a good time and I’ll definitely be back.
We out here!
