Skateboarding contests and activities in December 2011

December is around the corner and even if most people stop skating during the cold months that does not mean the whole skateboarding business has come to a screeching halt. Proof is the list below that shows all the skateboarding activities during the cold season:

First, let’s start with the Venice Thanksgiving Throwdown. Since the opening of Venice Skatepark, the crew has organized a Turkey Killing. The name has changed, but this is now the third time the contest is in action. The first annual Venice Thanksgiving Throwdown skate competition will be held on November 26th, 2011 at the Venice Skatepark. The event is open to the public and there will be $1,000 in cash prizes! The street competition starts at 9:30am with a bowl competition at 1pm. There will be a professional skate demo before the bowl competition with Christian Hosoi, Daniel Cuervo, Jeff Wright, and more! The age divisions are 15 and under and 16 and over. Skaters can register at Maui and Sons at 1415 Ocean Front Walk!
Then, there’s the Annual Tampa Am Skate Contest. Tampa Am will be broadcast live on the web, Sunday, December 4, 2011 at noon Eastern Time. The day before that, Nike SB will have the worldwide premiere of the SB Chronicles with the host party being right there in the crusty skateboard hut hosted by Ryan Clements and Brian Schaefer. If you're not in Tampa, join them in front of the web cam and they’ll tune into your local party over the wires. You can't do that on television. The Tampa Am will be taking place November 30th through December 4th in Tampa, Florida. Tickets are on sale now, but you have to hurry because the last day to purchase them online is November 27th. Get them while their hot!

The Damn Am Awards will take place on December 2, 2011 at Tampa to show the recognition for all our favorite ams of the year. The event will be also paired with Skatepark of Tampa's 19th Year Anniversary Party and the 5Spot Art Show.
