Confession: we’ve skipped out on every single opportunity we’ve had to attend the Vans Warped Tour. Apparently, in contrast to Blink-182, we actually could “wait for the summer and the warped tour.” Seventeen years, as it turns out (sorry Steve Van Doren).
Yesterday, however, thanks to the All Girl Skate Jam (pictured above), we found ourselves in Carson, California for the fifth to last stop of the 2011 Vans Warped Tour. And, we’re happy to report, the kids are alright.
The All Girl Skate Jam finals were going down at noon on a portable miniramp to lookers left of the main stage. It obviously, wasn’t the preferred terrain for some of the girls, but they all handled thier business as a side show to main acts on stage. One look at the list of competitors on the way to the show and we were pretty sure who would win.
And yeah, Volcom’s Leticia Bufoni did exactly that. Here are the rest of the results and a few photos from the day

USC student Amelia Brodka gets her rock and roll on her way to second place behind Leticia. Something she’s surely done before.
Lords of Dogtown: Director Stacy Peralta and the legendary Tony Alva hanging out in the Alva skates tent.
Kristy, Steve Van Doren, and Mike holding down the mile long Vans tent at the mainstage.
The Tilly’s Stage, not surprisingly, hosted bubblegum teen bands like The Ready Set.
The Ready Set’s Jordan Witzigreuter getting a little choreographed crowd interaction. There’s no lying: Jordan worked his ass off for the crowd. And he’s going to have to do it four more time in as many days.
