Mother Nature left the majority of Baltimore without power on the day of the Charm City contest, forcing the 21 & Under division to be delayed until the following weekend. The crew was able to run the Junior Jam on the scheduled day, thanks to some solar lighting in their Green Trucks-sponsored "Green Room." A tight little course, the Green Room fit the little guys perfectly. Quin Batley's lipside kickflips out were sick, but Ethan Todt's consistency landed him in first place.

With another looming storm, everyone returned to the Charmcity Skatepark a week later for a talent-packed showdown. The top ten finalists were so talented, they all deserved to go to the Free Flow Finals in San Fransisco.
This year's 1st place winner Mike Berdis used every ramp in the whole park. Lien to tails on the vert wall, giant transfers and hardflip backlip on the handrail while holding his shirt in his hand showed how easy this was for him.

2011 Charm City winner Myles Willard's bigspin to frontblunt to bigspin, along with big backside 3's to flat and mega methods, eased him into second place. 3rd place finisher Zach Plank skated some obstacles no one else touched, mixing technical skating with a no holds barred charge on the course.
Myles Willard is going back to Finals
Vincent Cortez and Tyler Thomas stacked so many tricks. They were so consistent and innovative and were both just decimal points away from the top. Brandon Strosser also killed it this year, he was techincal and consistent and made kickflip back noseblunts during his jam.
