The Miami Pro-Am Games, Pro Breaking Tour Challenger Series event was held on June 6th and 7th, 2014 at the North Shore Community Center in Miami Beach, Florida. This two day event was jam-packed with Tricking, Skateboard painting, Bboy battles, and more. In a conglomeration of hip-hop elements past, present, and future, the event delivered an experience that will be remembered by those in attendance for years to come. There were all sorts of pioneers and dancers from generations past building with some of today’s top competitors under a beautiful Florida sun. On the wheels of steel, Philadelphia’s DJ Foxx Boogie held it down like no other, bringing the fire to the battles for both days.
The Pro-Am bboy battles were simply electric from start to end with one of the hypest Top 16 brackets we’ve seen this year. It was a clash of states and countries as both Russia and France were in the house bringing their own unique flavor to the competition. After a mind-blowing 1vs1 Powermove final battle in which Dizzy of Motion Disorders defeated Shorty Brick, New York’s Beast Coast (Tata, Whorah & A-Rod) emerged victorious over Artkines (Nabil, Mr Keyz & Tim) of France in the 3vs3 to claim the $1500 prize. Queen NV (Supreme Beingz, NYC) took the 1vs1 Bgirl battle over Bgirl Melusine (France) and in a traditional Pro-Am fashion, the night was rounded out with the 4 corner style 1vs1 Leacy Bboy battle and the Ultimate Circle.
The 1vs1 Leacy battle came down to Gravity and Frankie in the final with Gravity taking the win; bboys Morris and Isaiah both with notable performances in the semi-final rounds. And although it’s hard to stack up and year to the epic Pro-Am ’99 Ultimate Circle, bboys Kid Glyde, Vicious Vic, Eagle, Kelvin, Dtron, Whorah, Gravity, Gunjak, Fantum and Box Won all kept it hype and won themselves $100 cypher awards in this year’s edition.
