Midwest Mayhem | Photo Recap Part 2
Jun 4, 2013 12:50 PM CDT

What happens when you put twelve CCS Am Project riders from all over the country in a van with Arto Saari and take them to Chicago? The below should give you a pretty good idea. This crew is about as diverse as it gets, but they all got along seamlessly like one big crew who'd known each other for years. It's always amazing to see how much unity there is in skateboarding and being in the van for five days with the CCS Am Project team was a great example of that. Battling rain throughout the weekend, the guys did the best they could to hit some of Chi-Town's most iconic spots including the Bean and the legendary Sea Wall. Check out the rest of the images below and stay tuned for full video coverage of some of the epic tricks that went down throughout the trip.

CCS would like to thank all of the Am Project sponsors for all their support and dedication to making this project a reality. This year's Am Project sponsors include: Adidas, DGK, Girl, LRG, Nike SB, KR3W, Emerica, Independent, Volcom, Ricta, Bones, Theeve, Venture, Plan B, Element and Lakai
