PHXAM "Wishing You Were Here" 2021 presented by Vans

In lieu of an in-person contest, Cowtown held it down in the desert with a drive-in premiere to display this year’s virtual PHXAM madness. Ams from across the world submitted their best clips from their local parks and the results were stunning. The esteemed judges combed through entries and collected the best moments for a highlight reel that illustrates the unreal global talent in the contest. The top-ten placing runs finish out the video and are listed below. Proceeds from the drive-in premiere went to the Cowtown S.K.A.T.E. nonprofit. Thanks to all the sponsors for helping make PHXAM 2021 happen: Vans, REAL Skateboards, Bones wheels, Bones bearings, Thrasher, Independent trucks, Pro-Tec, Happy Hour shades and Mob Grip.
