2013 Johnny Romano Skate Jam

Dec 12th, 2013 / Posted By: Charlie Allen

This year's Johnny Romano was nuts! We had a great time hanging out with everyone involved. This event is such a great one because it helps support the Make-A-Wish foundation, and so many pros and brands show up to help make dreams come true for those in need.

Big thanks goes out to Make-A-Wish, Southside Skatepark, SouthShore Distribution, DC Shoes, Real Skateboards, The Romano Family, and all the pros and spectators for showing up and supporting this cause.

Check out the video we filmed. Houston Native Ryan Thompson (Zumiez Best Foot Forward Winner) put on a clinic inside the walls of Southside Skatepark and got the Zumiez Destroyer Award for the event. Stoked for you Ryan!

We had an amazing time in Tampa this weekend! It was great seeing a bunch of our Zumiez Best Foot Forward Winners killing it in that Florida heat. (Sorry to everyone who wasn't in 80 degree weather) Big props to everyone at SPoT for all their hard work and support for skateboarding!

We also would like to congratulate Jack Olson (2012 Zumiez Best Foot Forward Finals Winner) for his big WIN at Tampa and also Jon Cos (One of our 2013 Zumiez Best Foot Forward Winners) for finishing second place. Hyped to see you kids out there ripping!

Trevor Colden has had an amazing year. He filmed a sick edit for Thrasher, got put on Nike, had some amazing showings at Damn AM and Tampa AM, and is just an amazing Skateboarder! We decided that is worth something so he gets this rad trophy and $3000 to build any sort of skate feature he can come up with for his community. Great job Trevor, You are killing it!
