All Girl Skate Jam Mini Ramp Contest at Vans Wraped Tour 2012

The winners of the AGSJ: Amelia Brodka, Kerri, Sara Thompson, Ariana Carmona, Julz Lynn
All Girl Skate Jam Mini Ramp Contest at Vans Wraped Tour 2012

Today at the Pomona Fairplex, during the Vans Wrapped Tour, Patty Segovia organized one stop of the All Girl’s Skate Jam mini ramp contest. It was very hot at Pomona today, especially with all those bands playing altogether, albeit on separate stages, and thousands of people clapping hands and tripin’ together. No wonder that from the freeway exit to the Mini ramp, it took us two hours with lines everywhere, a line to arrive at the parking lot, a line to get the press pass and a line to get a photo pass, Vans ended up having the second best day ever for Warped Tour in Pomona with over 16,767. But eventually the two hour wait was worth it although the Fair organizers in Pomona might rethink their logistics

The Pomona stop of the Vans Warped Tour was the second biggest on the record with over 16,767
and how to process the thousands of people going through the gates under a scorching sun…

The mini ramp is, well, a mini ramp. So it’s less impressive than your regular bowl or combi, (especially since you see the same girls shredding at Vans skatepark all year long) therefore the tricks have to be more technical. Speed, lines or style doesn’t really count here but the spectacle was that of a high level, with Amelia Brodka and Julz Lynn very technical. I would have placed Ameejay Papelera in the top 5, but I admit that it was probably difficult to judge anyway. There was actually only 1.5 point difference between Amelia and Julz. If proof is needed...
