Florida summer is here, which means extreme heat and rain for pretty much the rest of the year until December. But that didn't stop these kids from coming out to skate our annual School's Out Jam. This year was extra rad because Huf came through with tons of giveaways, prizes and Brad Cromer, Austyn Gillette and Jake Anderson. We powered through the humidity and put together a great day of skating, BBQ and Boards For Bros out in the courtyard. Here are some highlights from the day.
