Latest Jam in Portugal

Hi everybody!
Andre Coral here, bringing news from the portuguese prespective of fingerboard and other stuff.
For my first article i decided to make a review of our latest Jam.

It happened on the 28th of june in Lisbon´s city park
It was a very good experience, as all Jams are.

We mounted our parks just by a skate park, some even had the oportunity to ride the bigger park for old time sacke like Gil from Lowpro & Philipe from Yellowod.

It was a sunny day and it was hot, but the shadow of the trees was perfect.
We held 2 competitions.
Game of Skate and Best trick.

4 groups
first 2 go throw to playoffs
first 4 get prize

final score:

1º- Loz (Loma) won 1 Lowpro Deck & FPT Bearings
2º- Kaybass won 1 LowPro Deck& FPT Reep
3º- Afonso won 1 Lowpro Deck& FBPT O´rings
4º- Gonçalo (Lowpro) won 1 Lowpro Deck

chose one trick
say it
5 tris to do it
judges ( the sponsors - from Lowpro me & Gil and from Yellowod Philipe) grade the tries on a scale from 0 to 20

final score:
1º- Loz (shovit to blunt) (Loma) won 1 Yellowood Wenge
2º- Diogo (smith 180 flip out) ( Lowpro) won 1 Lowpro deck
3º- Rivers (blunt to front flip impossible to rock to fakie) won 1 Yellowood tshirt
4º- Kaybass (nollie 50-50 to nollie front flip impossible out) won YW orings

In the end it was great to consolidate the relationships between us all.
We had fun and we fingerboarded a lot while doing it.
Soon we will have another Jam, this time in Porto in th 2nd of August.
