Marcos Montoya wins stop 7 of The 2016 Boardr Am
Coming to a close
This past weekend, The Boardr Am hosted their seventh and final stop of the 2015 - 2016 Boardr Am series, which awarded eight lucky competitors the chance to compete in Skateboard Street Amateur at X Games Austin 2016. For the final round, The Boardr Boyz chose to keep it semi-local, picking The New Bro Bowl park in Tampa, Florida as competition host. In the end, Ft. Lauderdale's own Marcos Montoya grabbed the win and the final invite spot to X Games Austin 2016. Here's a quick look back at some of the action from Memorial Day Weekend, beginning with third place finisher Jereme Knibbs kickflipping a pyramid. Knibbs, and Aled Midler for that matter, deserve honorable mentions for delivering top performances all year long on The Boardr Am series.
Here comes a regular
Meagan Guy is a regular at The Boardr's Grind For Life series, and she made it out to compete in the final Boardr Am stop of the 2015 - 2016 season.
17-year-old Alex Midler never clinched the first place spot throughout the season, but managed several top six placings, which is no joke. Here, Midler switch front blunts his way to fourth place in Tampa.
The place to be
All day long, the Marinela tent was the place to be.
Cutting it close
Greyson Beal made the trip down from Kennesaw, Georgia to place 11th in the semi-finals. He didn't make it through to the finals, but with 28 competitors, that's nothing to scoff at. Here, Beal backside tailslides his way down the Bro Bowl rail.
Clean and smooth

Sometimes, versatility on the street course pays off. And in Reggie Kelly's case, that meant an eighth place finish in the semi-finals. Here, Kelly melon grabs the street course quarter at height.
Home and away
Fresh off the road from promoting a series of premieres for Adidas' "Away Days" video, The Boardr bus was back in Florida before heading out to X Games Austin 2016.
Can you say "dipped"? Here, first place finisher Marcos Montoya backside smiths his way across the Brow Bowl flat ledge en route to first place glory and the final invite spot for Skateboard Street Amateur at X Games Austin 2016.
Judges on deck
Tough decisions yet again. All season long, The Boardr judges have debated top placings for The Boardr Am series, proving that judging is one of the toughest jobs out there.
Tyler Hunger made it out for another round of The Boardr Am series, and eventually placed sixth in the finals. Here, Hunger back smiths his way down the Bro Bowl rail.
Haze Miller, 180 nose grind to regular en route to fifth place in the finals.
Ready to win
Parker Gilliland was so ready to win that he cut his pants in preparation for all of the potential flooding in Austin, Texas. Yes, it's been raining in Austin, but the show will go on.
From left to right: Jereme Knibbs in third place, Marcos Montoya in first place and William Gomez in second place. Look for Montoya at X Games Austin 2016 in just a few days, competing against the other top finishers in Skateboard Street Amateur.
