With the money raised from the “99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall” Art Show, we bought a good amount of product from Ocean Avenue and Deluxe. A couple of reporters came by to do a story for Channel 8 while we put together over 200 boards. If it wasn’t for Frosty having a fridge full of beer to entice us to volunteer our time, Clements probably would have been by himself putting boards together. Check out some photos from round two of Boards for Bro's assembly.

Captain Clem leading the way making sure every single nut, bolt, hanger, kingpin, or any other truck part is being put to use. Talk about efficiency...

Thanks for the brews, Frosty. This is the beginning of the assembly line. Frosty is putting bearings in the wheels while Boston and Christa are putting the wheels on the trucks

When the wheels are on the trucks, it then continues down the line where Gonzo and Jeff “Death” Lako put them on the boards

The “News Your Dad Reads” came by to do a little story on us. Thanks for coming by...

Thanks to DLX and Ocean Avenue for giving us the bro deal for the bros. There are going to be a few lucky ghetto babies receiving some brand new completes

Boards for Bros is our charity at Skatepark of Tampa. All year long, we collect used parts in the Shop. At the end of the year, we gather some friends and put everything together into as many usable skateboards as we can. Then we go through the rough neighborhoods of Tampa and give out hundreds of boards to kids. Last night we had a two hours session of putting the first 100 boards together for our giveaway trip this Saturday.
