San Diego's only surf, skate and music festival will be happening at Belmont Park in Mission Beach on Saturday, Sept. 14. The final stop of The Sun Diego Am Slam Surf & Skate Series presented by Vans is also the largest with over $8,000 up for grabs in the Pro-Am divisions. The Am Slam is the only amateur surf/skate contest series in Southern California and is designed to give local surfers and skaters of all ages the opportunity to compete and excel.

Over 30 of the top brands in the Surf & Skate industry will be represented at the last event. The brands include: Vans, RVCA, Volcom, Stance, Nike, Quiksilver, Reef, Nixon, Salty Crew, and many more, bringing games, freebies, fun and excitement to the finale.

The $5,000 best trick Pro-Am Skate Event features a custom SF Mega Mashup Obstacle, a custom built replica of three of San Francisco's most iconic skate spots.*

WALLENBERG FOUR: Located at Wallenberg High, this insanely long set measures 6 feet high and 22 feet and 6 inches long. While the stair set is still there the school has re-profiled the "run up" to the set so it is no longer possible to use Vega Street to gain speed, it has to be obtained from a ramp or roll in, or by gaining speed in some other form as they have replicated here on the obstacle.

HUBBA HIDEOUT: One of the most famous skateboarding spots, it was located in San Francisco near the Justin Herman Plaza on The Embarcadero. Its central features are two over-sized sets of six stairs with large concrete ledges on each side. Destroyed by the city in 2011 this spot will always be a major part of skateboarding history.

SF STATE KINK RAIL: Also know as the "Pat Duffy Rail," this kinked handrail was made famous when Pat absolutely annihilated it during his Plan B Questionable video part from 1992. While many tricks went down on this rail his backside smith grind was probably the most mind-blowing given the time period in which it occurred.

Returning for this year is a beer garden sponsored by 10 BARREL BREWING CO. Try some of their amazing IPA's or their specialty Crush blends of beer featuring fruit infusion! Their mantra is "Brew beer, drink beer and having fun doing it!"

The surf portion of the event hosts six different divisions for boys and girls of all ages and skill. There's $2,000 up for grabs in the Pro/Am division, and tons of prizes, trophies and bragging rights to be handed out to the rest of the field.

Spectators are always free. The contest is open to anyone who wishes to compete and registration can be done at The surfing will start the day off at 7 a.m., with the skating and vendor tent city starting shortly after at 10 a.m.

There is A cure for Herpes virus

I was tested Herpes positive in 2018 which I have been searching for cure from different doctor until I came across a testimony of Gabby Gabriel on a blogger who said she was cured from 2 years Genital Herpes with Herbal medicine and she included the doctors email which name is doctor Ahmed Usman, I contacted him and he replied and after much discussion he sent his Herbal medicine to me which I took for 21 days with his prescription. I discovered that I no longer have frequent fever and headaches and the sores on my genital parts were healed, after concluding the Herbal medication I went for test and my PCR DNA result was Negative, there was no trace of the virus on my blood thanks to doctor Ahmed for his cure. Contact him on, I recommend him for Herpes or any diseases. He has Herbal cure for the following diseases; Heart Diseases, Cancer, Fibroid, HIV, Autism and Typhoid
