This is downtown Tampa a little after 6am this morning. No traveling lately means I get to wake up to these vibrant colors outside my window whenever I get an early start to a long day of 100% pure, raw, totally gnar, skate keyboarding. Anyone want to scale that building with me and cut down that banner of the stupid ass 70's gecko?

That granite slab hasn't found a home yet

I spy a baby hubba making a return to the course

Apparently the old tech center thing is were the Pier 7-ish thing is going

Here's the current state of the street course

Gitter dunnnnnn

Out with the old, in with the new

I look at these every day outside the offices of Innetech and wonder what the story is. Anyone care to elaborate in the comments?

Pier 7 is taking shape

Wow, how many years has it been since we re-did the Kiddie Course?
