The 4th Annual Venice Ladies Jam Skate Contest was an epic event!

Hosted by Venice Beach Recreation and Parks in conjunction with Skate Park Association International, ladies of all ages came out to roll,  blast and carve Venice’s oceanfront skatepark.

The  volunteer  OG Jam crew: Heidi Lemmon, Jeff Greenwood, Brandon Field, Brian Martin, Lonny Hiramoto, Kimi Kallman, Steve Wright, and Earl Okinaka did a fantastic job of organizing the event while Bart Saric of Skater Made and Skateboard Hall of Famer Cindy Whitehead held down the MC duties.

It was a great community effort and day all around!  The sponsors came in big with a stacked table of products,  incentivizing the skaters bring their A game every run.  The City pressure washed the park, Jesse Martinez arrived at 5:00 a.m. to do some last minute cleaning, the photographers came to document, the crowd came to cheer, and most importantly, the ladies came to skate.

We are already looking forward to next year!

Here is a message from OG Jam Series.

2019 OG Jam Series is about ready to roll. We’re still signing up sponsors and working on some final details, but this year of expansion is about to start in Fontana on May 18th.

New for this year is we are expanding to NorCal for a whole rival series to SoCal. Another thing is we are now Not Free (Membership is required: but we are still really cheap to enter!). Our website linked in our profile has all the gritty details but we are more than excited to bring together a lot more OG bowl riders this year throughout California. We should have Membership registration opened up in the next day or two and we’ll post that up too when it’s ready.
