We teamed up with Westside Skateshop and Nike SB for another epic (and insanely hot) Go Skateboarding Day here in Tampa. Our first stop was the Bro Bowl park downtown, and to switch it up a little from previous years, we whipped up a pair of kickers to add to the mix. The first challenge was a long ollie contest from kicker to kicker, and it looked like Marse Farmer was going to easily take home the win, but Jordi Zapata surprised everyone with a 17 footer first try, leaving it at a tie and $50 apiece. After that, we were giving out cash for tricks down the stairset into the kicker. Once we couldn't take the heat anymore, we headed over to SPoT for free skating, free BBQ and more cash for tricks. All in all it was a great day and we're super thankful to everyone that came out.

After a few flip tricks, it was time to get the Long Ollie Contest started…
Marse couldn’t wait until Sam was done to get an Ollie in though
Jordi floating somewhere around 14 feet
Time to extend it!
Marse was the only person who didn’t seem to have any trouble getting speed. 17 foot Ollie.
After struggling with speed on shorter Ollies, Jordi blasted his 17 foot Ollie first try!
When all was said and done, both Marse and Jordi tied at 17 feet & walked out with $50 a piece
