Did I see nolllie flip backside noseblunt slide? Wow. No one cut the budget on practice. There's some ripping skating, ripping chilling, break dancing, checking-in, and a quick chat with Theotis on what shoes he's going to skate in on this video from Colin Clark at the first day of Tampa Am.
Wes Kremer got here all day Thursday, but I didn't see him until the Party later that night because I was stuck in the shop all day. Thanks for coming to Tampa again, Wes.

The t-shirt octopus was cranking all night printing shirts from Lance Mountain, Bigfoot, Ed Templeton, and more.
The ink had it smelling industrial like this warehouse's old days before skateboarding took it over.
Thanks for the free sauce. I wasn't expecting it to be all that good, but this beer was great. Give it a try if you're 21, it's free. That's in everyone's budget.
Aging budgets have also been cut. None of us are allowed to get any older. Big Al and Paul Zitzer are kids for life now.

Elisha and Seamus are all about the Kenny Powers graphic. Brittany doesn't want to hear it.
It's time for a foot fetish. Due to the budget cuts by the sun, the dropping temperatures had all the ladies digging through their closets for boots.
I tried it out in front of the camera like the pro Ryan Clements here. This is not an easy job.

Due to budget cuts, rather than adding 10 pounds, the camera is now subtracting 10 pounds. Is Andrew Cannon losing weight?

Over with Chad Cardoza, you pick your graphic, pick your shirt size and color, go have three beers, and then come back and pick up your shirt.

Sierra, where you been? We've all been working too much. Those are the graphic choices that you can send to the octopus press.
Locals Katherine and Manny, thanks for joining us in welcoming all these people to Tampa.
Colin Clark went home after the party with his roommate and finished editing the video at 2:30am. Thanks, Colin!
Misha Cracker and the homies from Isreal. I wish I had room for you all to skate the Contest. Rodney Johnson made some new friends as you all should be doing this weekend.

Andrea and Seamus stacked up on shirts. Me, too.
Sierra and Sasha, making the welcome warmer despite the sun's cutbacks.
The break dance circle needed a few more dudes to really get going. This dude was killing it, though.
