PHX Am 2012 Photos

Posted: April 2, 2012

Cowtown’s 11th annual PHX AM contest went off without a hitch. With temperatures in the 90s for Friday and Saturday, the course was getting hot, but Sunday came with relief when temperatures fell back into the 70s. Despite strong winds, a weekend of amazing skating came to a close with last year’s champ Ben Hatchell securing the victory once again. Thanks to Trent, Laura, Ed, and the rest of the Cowtown staff for more than a decade of dedication to skateboarding.

Skater of the Year 2014, Wes Kremer, floats onto the April cover with a sculptural Ollie to fakie and the party continues inside as Wes and his best hemmies go loco in Gran Canaria. The yearly T-Eddys continue to shine and shun; Bones penetrates the language barrier in Poland; The Midwest gets tested by Birdhouse and a Skate Loteria photo feature helps you brush up on your Español. Muy bueno.
