Slam City Jam Slams

North America's biggest skateboarding party celebrated its 10th birthday from May 2nd to 4th with a slamfabulous event featuring big air, crazy tricks and more rotations than a Beyblade. The list of skaters flipping and falling at the 2003 Slam City Jam in Vancouver included Tony Hawk, Andy Macdonald, Shaun White and Cara-Beth Burnside.

The Hawkman started the party on the opening night with a wild demo on the world's biggest skateboarding ramp. Tony may be older than your parents but the Hawkman showed he's still one of the best by landing another 900 and unleashing dozens of other mind-blowing tricks.

Ryan Sheckler proved that bigger doesn't mean better in the world of skateboarding, as the pint-sized 13 year-old won Slam City's Street Competition and took home a nice fat check for $15,000. In the Vert competition, Sandros Dias edged out Andy Macdonald to win first place. The Vert event was the pro skateboarding debut for pro snowboarder, Shaun White. Shaun showed he's almost as smooth on wheels as he is on snow by placing fourth. Slam City's Women's competiton was the largest ever. Cara-Beth Burnside claimed first place in the Vert event, while Vanessa Torres won the Street Competition.

The 2003 Slam City Jam was a three-day celebration of everything that makes skating a great sport and lifestyle. It was about much more than the top pros battling each other for the biggest air or best trick. There was an indoor skatepark, a massive skate mall with tons of cool skate gear and a live performance by punk legends, Bad Religion. In the words of Andy Macdonald, "The Slam City Jam is the funnest skateboarding event anywhere, it's always a good time."

You can catch all the action of the 2003 Slam City Jam on television on Saturday, May 10th on NBC Sports at 5:00 PM EDT/2:00 PDT.
