Noiya Clothing is continuing to organise its annual rollerblade jam at The House Skatepark, Sheffield. The event was won by Alex Burston last year who walked away with the first prize of £300 cash, closely followed by Nick Lomax in second with his £150, and Steve Swain in third winning £75. Since winning last April Alex has gone on to have a stellar year, picking up major sponsorship from Razors. We hope to have him in attendance again this year to defend his title. Rumour has it that Mike Welland might also be about to attempt to regain his title from 2009.
Once again there will be cash prizes, giveaways, food and a Noiya Clothing stall set up with the new 2011 line available exclusively at this event a month before it hits the shops. The only major difference this year is we decided to hold the Jam towards the start of the month to ensure people still have enough money to travel and to coincide with the Easter holidays.
On the day there will be 3 different jam’s:
1 – 15 and under -12pm start (Qualifier for AIL ‘Youngbloods’ 15 and under competition @ SlammJamm XIII)
2 – Open – 2pm start
3 – Expert/Sponsored – 4pm start
The format will be 5 people skating the park in 5 minute rounds, with the judges favourite from each round going through to the semi-finals where the top two will go through to the final.
There is a limit of 30 riders in each category, so make sure you get down early to secure your place. Park opens at 10.30am, closes at 7pm.
Supported by Kingdom Magazine, SlapTap, Loco Skates, UKSkate, The Conference (USD, Undercover, Xsjado, Kizer) Ground Control, Razors and Glaceau VitaminWater so far.
Entry will be £5 whether you are spectating, skating or entering the jam.
We have organised a massive afterparty as well in collaboration with Sheffield’s biggest and best bass-music night, Subtitle. Hosted at Corporation nightclub and based in a convenient city centre location this one is set to go off!
Tes la Rok is headlining the show, with Noiya Clothing’s DJs and producers Crisp (http://www.soundcloud.com/crispdubsuk) and Kidnap Kid (http://www.soundcloud.com/kidnap_kid) supporting, so make sure you all stay for the weekend. Its time to hit up all those friends, relatives and associates in the Sheffield area for a place to passout. Come party afterwards and skate some of Sheffield’s infamous street spots on the sunday. Its going to be a session!
