Jagger Eaton places among the top at PHX AM!

Last weekend was the Phoenix Am, one of the most highly regarded and respected Am skate contests in the nation.  With that being said, the talent that shows up is insane.  21 year old Ben Hatchell took first this year, but 11 year old Jagger Eaton was close behind.  Just barely missing the finals, Jagger came in 18th out of 184 contestants! Congrats Jagger!

Kids That Rip! in Mesa is Jagger’s home skatepark, so if you want to skate with him, come to a summer camp or open skate.  You’re likely to see him shredding, and pick up some good tips.
