The stoke level was high this past weekend in DC and out in Ohio. The DC and Rybioko Slides jams both went down with tons of shredding and quite a bit of thane got left behind. In DC well over 100 skaters showed up to throw down their stuff and prizes were a plenty. Great job to organizers Kevin Siqueira and Christian Jay Cherres. Kevin was an awesome dude to collaborate with and these guys did a great job of throwing a huge event.

Check out the awards ceremony for a really novel idea on how they distributed prizes. DC Slide Jam Results
and have some MORE footage from the final cut! (Thanks Christian for the updates!)
Only a couple hundred miles west, the guys and gals out in Columbus competed in the Rybioko Slide Jam. Even with less skaters vying to win, an incredible display of sideways skill was exhibited. The crew gathered by Avery Wilcox (organizer) were fun, talented, and determined to win. Check out the fantastic video footage taken at Rybioko!
On a side note, a Full-Bag Elise was taken from the event by someone who did not BRING it to the event. If anyone knows anything or saw anything let us know via e-mail (skate at bustinboards dot com) or hit up Keenan Shaw on Facebook.

Congratulations to all the winners, skaters and organizers who got involved and turned this past weekend into one of the gnarliest on the east coast this summer!
