Blake Waters is finally back from his snowboard trip he took right after the jam, so now he’s back to editing the footage from the 2nd Annual BV Jam from two weekends ago. Above you can see footage from the Mutiny Best Trick and Division Brand Rail Jam.
As you can see, Reed Stark absolutely kills the place in both jams. He actually won both too (huge wall ride to 180 – the deck on the quarter is like 7 feet for best trick.. and he dropped a ton of crazy rail tricks)… but since Reed is on BSD he passed the frame he had won to AJ Haines who pulled the opposite 360 look back to late tailwhip. You can also see some footage from Erik Elstran, Glenn Dussl, Dan Kruk and more. Check it!
Expect some more footage to drop here soon from a few other things from the day, and the photogallery… once our new photogallery is dialed in… hint hint.
Blake Waters finally got back from his snowboard trip so he has been busy editing up the rest of the footage from the BV Jam two weekends ago. Expect those edits to drop tonight or tomorrow morning! Until then, check out a few clips he had of Reed Stark absolutely shutting down the park. You can check out more footage from the pro / finals right here.
Head over to QBMX to check out a bunch of photos that Jay shot on Saturday at the BV Jam!
Pretty decent turn out, yeah? This wasn’t even the high point in people at the park for the day.
Every year for the last like 8 or so years, I’ve been able to get involved with an annual jam at one of Minnesota’s skateparks. Some people might remember the ones I was able to organize and help out with at Board To Death, Renegade, Mankato, Midwest and 3rd Lair in the past. Each year the events have been getting better and better with more and more support. This year was definitely awesome since it was by far the most we’ve ever been able to give away for prizes.
The only down side to organizing an event is that you’re so busy running around like a chicken with its head cut off to make sure everything keeps rolling smooth. I’ll be honest and say that’s my least favorite part of the day. The other 90% is awesome though and at the end of the day, it’s always worth it.
I was able to snap a few photos throughout the day to help keep track of what went down and everything. I decided I’d upload a bunch to give you an idea of how things panned out. Expect a full photogallery from Tristan Theil at some point this week and once Blake Waters gets back from a quick snowboarding trip the rest of the footage should start popping up.
So let’s see what I had on my camera…

Yesterday, the 2nd Annual BV Jam went down at Bluff Valley’s Over The Top Skatepark in Zumbro Falls, Minnesota.
The park was supposed to open at 10:00 but by 9:30 there was already around 20 kids riding the park, so things got rolling pretty fast. As the day progressed there were over 200 people between the 70 or so people who entered the contest and the people there to watch and hang out. So the turn out was awesome. Shout out to the people who came all the way from Nebraska, Chicago, Milwaukee and what not. Definitely psyched people from all over the place were able to come out for the good times.
Above you can check out some of the highlights and results from the Expert/Pro class that Blake Waters got together for us. There’s a ton of real good footage of guys like Reed Stark, Erik Elstran, AJ Haines, Colton Walker, Nick Harkins, Spencer Sullivan, Dan Kruk, Pirate, Tim Oliver, Dan Nelson, Kuba Cerski, Ben Eyelander and more!
Expect photos from the day and more footage from the Beginner and Intermediate guys, best trick, highest air, the rail jam, highest bunny hop, longest manual, longest skid and more later in the week!

Just a reminder that the 2nd Annual BV Jam that I’m putting on is going down at Bluff Valley’s Over The Top Skatepark THIS SATURDAY (February 4th). I’ve got stacks on stacks on stacks of product from all of the sponsors to give away… Like… I need a truck to get everything there. Everyone is leaving with some goodies! Be there if you are looking for a good time! Doors open at 10 a.m. Session starts then. Noon for the Beginner and Intermediate contest… Pro / Expert class starts at 2 with a bunch of jams throughout the day and I’m sure a product toss will get in there at the end.
Shout out to ALL of the sponsors for the support. Couldn’t do this without you guys.
If you have noticed, I’ve been slacking a little with the originals. I apologize! I’ve been busy working on getting things organized for my annual contest / jam that I’ve been throwing in Minnesota for the last 8 or 9 years now. This year, we will be having it at Bluff Valley Campground’s Over The Top Skatepark in Zumbro Falls, Minnesota for the second year on FEBRUARY 4th! I’m in absolute shock by how much support I was able to get for this one this year. I’d like to give a HUGE shout out to all the sponsors for this year.

As you can see from the flyer, we will be running two contests. One for the beginner and intermediate guys. It will be a jam format. After the contest, we will run a JR. Biggest Air, Jr. Colony Highest Bunnyhop and Jr. Footdown! Registration opens at 10 A.M and the contest will start at Noon for these guys.
After that wraps up, we’ll be running a Pro X Expert contest at 2 PM for the big dogs. It will be a jam format with a cash purse! We will try and fire it out as quick as possible so we can get to the DELUXE Biggest Air where we will be giving the winner a frame from Deluxe, S&M World Record Manual contest, Longest Skid, Division Brand Rail jam, Colony Highest Bunnyhop, FBM Pizza Eating contest, and more.
There may be a video premiere or two depending if the videos are done (Fingers crossed).
It will be a $20 entry fee for the day. That gets you into the contests (if you want), all of the jams for prizes, riding for the entire day with a FREE EVENT T-SHIRT. That and I’d imagine you will be walking away with over $20 in prizes anyways. Free entry for spectators!
So come out for what’s looking like a DAMN GOOD TIME on February 4th here in Minnesota at Over the Top Skatepark.
