Canada's top amateur skateboarding contest returned last year where Jon Cos shut it down and took home $7,500. In 2015, it's back and going down in September. Jon Cos happened to also win the first ever stop of The Boardr Am in Los Angeles, taking him to the Finals at X Games. For 2015's Am Getting Paid, we're partnered up and making this one an official stop for The Boardr Am. The winner here will join us all expenses paid at The Boardr Am Finals at X Games in Austin, Texas, June 2016.
