Skatepark of Tampa had another Free Day. We particularly fancy the formula of hosting a Free Day along with Krux Kickflip Challenge and a Demo by the infamous Westside Skate Shop. They righteously hold it down every time. With a veteran leader like John Montesi (34 years young) of course his team is sure to rip it up. I had an enjoyable time watching them sweat it out for 45-minutes straight. Thanks to John and crew for coming out and keeping the tradition alive.

And who could forget the KFC? Not me. However, I did forgot how long this Contest could go on for. I tried to do the math and I must have witnessed at least 2000 kickflips. First place went to Ryan Nicole with 249 kickflips. That’s a bundle of flicking.

I want to thank everyone for coming out and joining the fun last Saturday. I hope you didn’t eat too many free hotdogs and hamburgers. Thanks for cooking, Body.
