In honor of the release of Demarcus' new War Horse V2 Frame and Jarren's color way on the Voyager Frame, we thought it would be fitting to throw a jam at ALL DAY. With video premieres, signings, giveaways and just a good ol' fashion hangout! The rain didn't seem to stop everyone from having a great time!
While Erik Elstan and Jeff Dowhen where in Long Beach working on the new Madera video they had a free day so we dropped the pin and hit the streets. We landed on an industrial area in Carson, where Madera team mates Mike Stahl and Tom Villarreal eventually met up with us and we rode a lot of cool stuff and ran into some interesting situations along the way.

Also it was time to get the scene together as a whole, no more politics but sharing the passion we all have for 16” up till 26”wheels, as one! We needed an indoor location where all types of riding could take place (except Dirt, but another JunkieJam will happen this year). Not only park rats needed to come out but also street riders needed to be attracted. Skateland Rotterdam has for all these riders obstacles they like to shred so we got in touch with them and without hesitation they agreed to open up their park for this event and even stepped up to the plate to make the entry free for all the riders. Because time and budget was limited we needed people to people to help us for free…
