Jamie Foy BBQ Skate Jam Photos

One of the perks of winning Thrasher magazine’s SOTY award is the signature products tend to roll right in, so it should be no surprise that Thunder graced Jamie Foy with his very own truck. To commemorate the momentous occasion, a BBQ skate jam was thrown at Lanark skate plaza (Jamie's favorite park in the valley). With boxes of t-shirts, hoodies and trucks for the local rippers and half-a-dozen Deathwish boards to toss out, the kids were ready to shred. After the jam, the guys fired up the 'Q to grill some burgers and carne asada. Sounds like a pretty epic Friday afternoon if you ask me. —Joe Hammeke
