Special Announcement

After 12 years of steadily growing King of the Groms/King of the Ams into the premier youth skateboarding event in the county, we are ready to take things to the next level.  In our effort to further refine and evolve, we have decided it is time to do something different and better.  We are working on some exciting changes and can not wait to release details once everything has been finalized.  Our previously planned stops for 2014 will be replaced by the new schedule kicking off in 2015.  Look for our big announcement in November with info regarding the new and improved King of the Groms.  In the meantime, get out there and ride your skateboard.

who we are. What started at 3rd Lair in 2003 as a local contest for groms has grown into the largest youth skateboarding contest series in the world. King of the Groms/Ams currently includes 5 Qualifier stops culminating in an epic Final Championship weekend drawing young skaters from around the globe. Throughout the years, we have seen some of the most talented young riders in skateboarding come through the series including: Cody Davis, Chaz Ortiz, Curren Caples, Alex Midler, Tom Shaar, Jagger Eaton, Mitchie Brusco and more. King of the Groms/Ams, designed for skaters aged 16 and under, features a street contest as well as transition events with multiple divisions. This series is more than just a contest – it is an event. Our skaters are more than just participants – they are a community. Whether you have a shot at becoming the next King or you have just started skateboarding, King of the Groms/Ams is the perfect place to hone your skills, make friends, and have fun. We are the premiere event for young skaters setting the standards for all others. Event Coverage Every stop will have extensive online event coverage including photos, videos and results. Austin McDowell will be the man behind the camera. Every skater will have their photo on our website and he will be capturing all the action. Kyle Henkler will be filming and posting a new video on the KOG/AMs website every day. Make sure to flag him down to film your best trick. We will also have a live webcast from select qualifying stops and from our championship event so that family and friends from around the world can watch the action. What Else to Expect At each stop, we ensure a unique and memorable experience that goes way beyond your contest run. Ask any of our Groms about the milk drinking contest or about the epic pool party or what happens when you ollie 15 gallons of milk…Have you ever had your hair cut in a land or slam contest? ICEE At every stop host "COOLEST TRICK" contest! at every stop! Are you part of the Trog Army? Swamp Trog will MC throughout the entire weekend with the passion and energy that only Trog can bring.
