Default Aggressive Inline (Rollerblading) Events Around the World

European Half Pipe Championships
I'm not sure when this series began, but there were three events on their 2009 tour, one in Montana Bulgaria, one on Mallorca Island in Spain, and one in the Dutch city of Rotterdam.

Amateur Inline League (AIL)
Series founded in 2004 by Cory Miller, Pam Velasquez, and Richie Velasquez. Their first tour included four events in 2005 and in 2009 they organized about 30 events, half in the U.S. and half in other countries.

World Rolling Series (WRS) - Videos
Series founded in January of 2009 by eight aggressive skate boot makers. Primary focus is men's professional inline park skating.

I know there are plenty of other series in many other parts of the world. This list is just to get the discussion started...

Default Slamm Jamm Web Site

Wow - cool! I did some poking around on the Web and I found this:

The 11th Annual Slamm Jamm took place October 16-17, 2009 at the RampWork Skatepark in Liverpool, England UK. The official event Web site is at SlammJamm.com. As soon as the 2010 Slamm Jamm dates are confirmed I will add the event to the SkateLog Forum Calendar.

Thank you! SlammJamm 11 was just amazing!! SlammJamm 12 will be in October 2010, again at Rampworx Skatepark in Liverpool.

SlammJamm is unique in that everyone can go and skate there. There are comps for ams to qualify for the Amateur Inline League (AIL) at Woodward as well as everyone just having a nice skate together.
I really did enjoy SlammJamm 11 tremendously; I met some really nice people; managed to hogg the little ledge with a skater called Adam; watched most of the comp (missed best trick, though, as I ended up taking a skater to hospital) and mourned when the event was over.

If anyone is interested to be part of the next SlammJamm let me know!
