Damn Am Atlanta 2012

Atlanta, Georgia, 4/18/2012 by Colin Clark
Last year was the first year that the SPoTlight Crew hosted a Damn Am event in the Peach State, and it went off without a hitch. Ishod Wair came in first, to kick of his contest killing spree for 2012, (also getting first in AmsterDamn Am AND Maloof South Africa). Justin Brock was there to hang out and make sure that everyone had a good time in his newly located home State. The contest will be held at Hazard Skatepark in McDonough, GA (just outside Atlanta) on April 20th, to 22nd.
