On Saturday May 25.2013 the first annual Maryland AM skateboard contest presented by Under Armour was held at the Charmcity Skatepark in Baltimore, Maryland. In the weeks prior to the contest the Charmcity construction crew rebuilt the set up in the new warehouse. During the construction alot of people would stop by and skate whatever was finished. Here is a clip of them ripping filmed by Joe Broccolo and Jason Chapman. The clip stars Charmcity team riders Kyle Flegel, Bart Tararuj, Sean “Shemry” Emery, Mike Bloodsworth and Tyrese Jefferson. Charmcity owner Jason Chapman edited the piece! Stay tuned for the Global Skateboarding Network.com video coverage from the Maryland AM. Also expect to see something from Exploitation video magazine which was also there covering the event!
“This video clip is awesome. Most of it was first try.Kyle Flegel is amazing! Almost happy with this course. Going to mellow out the wedge that you hit the picnic table with and mellow the big hubbas. Also going to lower the rail up top by two or three inches and pull it back just a smidge!- Jason Chapman Owner The Charmcity Skatepark
