Tampa Am 2011: Thanks for Watching

Posted on Thursday, October 27, 2011 by Rob

How Trevor Colden Won Tampa Am 2011

We'll have more coverage after we wrap up the Damn Am Awards tonight at The Bricks during the Tampa Am After-Party. It was real close between Luke Hampton and Trevor Colden, but when the dust settled, it was Trevor in first by less than a point. Check the full Final results of Tampa Am here. Independent Best Trick Results are here.

Sunday at Tampa Am 2011

Sunday at Tampa Am has the top 40 skaters out of nearly 250 that skated on Friday and Saturday. The skating is of course is top notch, but you've also got the Moat Race and Best Trick where everyone steps it up into madness that you'd never be able to land in a run. Tampa Am 2011 is a wrap and it's been another great weekend. We're already looking forward to next year. Thanks to everyone who came to be a part of what we do. We'll see you next year at the 19th Annual Tampa Am.

Saturday at Tampa Am 2011

Saturday's footage from Tampa Am includes moms getting SPoT tats, ripping gingers, plus another 121 skaters in the Qualifiers on Saturday were cut down to 16 for the Semi-Finals that will be broadcast live at skateparkoftampa.com at noon on Sunday EST.

Friday at Tampa Am 2011

While you're waiting for the webcast on Sunday at noon EST, get a taste of the ripping already going on from Friday.

Friday Night at Dr. Octagon's Show: SPoT 19-Year Anniversary Party

Wow, Chet Childress got naked, Kool Keith got shoved off stage, we danced, we lost our voices, and @HiDefJoe logged it all for you.

Thursday at Tampa Am 2011: Welcome to Town

@HiDefJoe has an edit from the 5 Spot Art Show and Welcome to Tampa Party last night. There was a raging bowl jam, free sauce, all the homies, and work from over 100 participating artists to buy at very fair prices with all the proceeds going to Boards for Bros. Welcome to town, Tampa Am is on!

Good Hash

Tag things on Insta and Twitter with #TampaAm and in seven days we'll have quite a collection of thoughts, images, crazy characters like the Shoe Licker, and general ruckus that comes to town for this skateboard shindig that closes out the year.
