Damn Am Costa Mesa Presented by Volcom March 7 - 10, 2013

Damn Am Costa Mesa presented by Volcom used to be in October every year and started in 2001. It's been two years since we have been able to do this decade old "West Coast Tampa Am" because there hasn't been a course, but it's back on now and went down in Costa Mesa on March 7 - 10, 2013. Curren Caples won it. He and Louie Lopez in 2nd both get a spot directly in the Semi-Finals at Tampa Am 2013 in December. They both get to skip the 250+ skaters in the Qualifiers at Tampa Am.
