Since the next Olympics (at Tokyo 2020), will feature skateboarding as a competitive medal sport - The 1st LAKSA JAM by Laksamana Skateboards is a local Malaysian tournament with one mission: To find Malaysia's potential Olympic skateboard medalist starting first with sending Laksa Jam's 'Gold' medalist to Grandprix Beroun, a World Cup Skateboarding sanctioned event in Czech Republic.
This event, in collaboration with the Ministry of Youth & Sports and Laksamana Skateboards, will be held at Mont Kiara Skate Park on the 1st of April.
A jaw-dropping crowd-cheering demonstration from Street League's newest Pro Dave Bachinsky, 3 times X Games medalist and 2 times WCS overall rankings winner Tomas Vintr, plus one of the most iconic U.S Professional skateboarders out there, Sierra Fellers will showcase the best that skateboarding has to offer! Also in the Pro mix are Japan's Daisuke Nakaura, Koya Miyasaka and Malaysia's own MOhd Fikri Bin Zulkifly.
If that isn't enough cause for excitement, double dare the person next to you to get a bird’s eye view from the zip-line across the roof of the skatepark to see which of you has the toughest nerves.
While most will be at Laksa Jam for the excitement of extreme sports, some may also enjoy a stroll through our 'local street wear bazaar’ or perhaps snacks and refreshment from the wide variety of food trucks made available only meters away!
Though we too are including the standard ambient music of every event, at Laksa Jam prepare yourself for performances from entertainment's rising stars in the local band and hip hop scene.
