Over the last two months the 2012 Nike SbA Am Series has held qualifiers in six states and one territory in order to seek out the next wave of Australia’s skateboard talent. The standard of the next gen has proved to be astronomical. The Finals will be held on Saturday the 31st of March at the Skatepark of Melbourne and will no doubt set a whole new standard for Amateur Skateboarding in Australia. This video holds a mere fraction of the kind of ripping we are bound to see at the Finals.
