Tampa Am 2016: Converse Concrete Jam Coverage

Posted on Wednesday, November 16, 2016 by Chris

Hard to believe how far we've come 24 years after just being a vert ramp in a warehouse. Thanks to all our friends, family and sponsors for helping to build SPoT up to what it is today. That being said, we celebrated our 24th birthday with a ripping Converse Concrete Jam and some live music from Black Dave. The fearless were awarded with money and prizes and a lot of people got free booze, courtesy of PBR and Monster. The SPoT Life edit is coming soon and if you weren't here, you'll definitely want to check it out.

As Qualifiers ended for the day and the sun started going down, it was time to let the booze flow and get ready for our 24 Year Anniversary Party and the Converse Concrete Jam!
Our good friends at PBR and Monster Energy provided the free sauce if you were 21 or older. Needless to say, it didn't last long...
Conrad and Sarah held down the bar all weekend. Hopefully that tip jar was overflowing by the end of the night. Photo bomb by Wayne Schaefer.
