Pole jams highlight one of the most interesting aspects of skateboarding – the ability of skateboarders to find ways to utilise spaces and the obstacles contained within them. Who else is going to get excited by a pole that has been knocked out of the ground after being hit by a car?
With that in mind we decided to collect together GIFs of some of our favourite examples of the pole jam. As ever, this isn’t meant as an exhaustive list, so feel free to suggest your own favourites.
