Damn Am Select Series contests are always the best, but doing one smack in the middle of the world’s best skate camp made the Woodward PA Damn Am even better. This was the fifth of seven stops for the year and the level of ripping was off the chain, but when it comes to SPoT contest it’s all about the level of stoke, and that was absolutely all time.

Coming out of absolutely nowhhere, Wacson Mass the little man with big hair and even bigger tricks crushed 100 plus other skaters for the win at the Damn Am Select Series Volcom stop. Side note: Wacson is actually from Brazil and you might just be looking at the next Felipe Gustavo. As a bonus he also qualifies straight into the Semi-Finals at Tampa Am.

The SPoT Posse spent an epic couple of days skating the hot spots in LA before stop one of the Damn Am at Lincoln Skatepark. From the Diamond Park with locals to the Baker TF with Antwuan, this one is too good to miss. Six more Damn Ams are still to come.
