AFROPUNK Best Trick Jam


The 2018 AFROPUNK best trick jam will take place at the newly christened 18,000 square foot Golconda skatepark in Brooklyn. AFROPUNK will be partnering with local brands who have chosen certain sections of the skatepark to have best trick “jams.” This format will allow for a more inclusive contest run by the skaters for the skaters. Steve Rodriguez, the founder of 5boro Skateboards who also designed the park will be organizing and MCing the event to make sure each section gets the most shine. The sections will be the “Bank to Wall”, the “grass gap” and the “hubbas and straight rail”. Contestants will compete for cash and prizes.
