Jagger Eaton on Top Grom’s Cover

Jagger is blowing up the newest issue of Top Grom magazine with this steezy cover shot and exclusive interview.  The January issue will be posted online soon at topgrom.com. We’ll also be getting a stack in at KTR, so keep your eyes peeled to get your hands on one!

Although relatively new to the contest scene, Top Grom is quickly growing to be the largest international amateur skate series with stops in Canada, Australia, U.S., India and more!  Along with the annual series, Top Grom, also publishes the only print skate magazine on groms/ams, pulling interviews from the best of the best.  KTR is working on securing dates for a Top Grom qualifying stop in 2014, and will announce as soon as dates are locked in.

We also want to say Good Luck to KTR skater, Lazer Crawford, who will be competing in the TG Championship January 16-18 in Michigan!
