With 6 qualifier stops across Canada leading to the grand finale in Montreal, Am Getting Paid is the biggest amateur skateboard competition in Canada. Arnette was an official sponsor of the tour this year and we saw it as an important opportunity to reinforce our grass roots relationship within the skateboarding community across Canada. At each stop free schwag was abundantly available in the forms of Arnette skateboard decks, tees, trucker hats and piles atop piles of stickers. The groms were psyched, Am's were ripping and people were happy...the Arnette Gorilla even made an appearance!
When the smoke cleared, it was Matt Berger who ended up taking the title and with past winners including the likes of Ryan Decenzo and Nyjah Huston, Matt no doubt has a bright future ahead of him. With $5000 now in the bank maybe Matt will take a day or two off and let his victory soak in before contemplating his next big move...or win.
