Nike SB backed this month's Skatepark of Tampa Membership Appreciation Day. Here are a few photos from a little ledge contest we had.
Man, sorry I didn't get your name AND I put a toilet on you. I didn't ever see this crooked grind get made, so therefore,
Take a Poop
James Wright - backside 50-50 for Red Bull ad.
Jake Mills - frontside tailslide, probably to something crazy out.
David Fuentes - backside tailslide from an ollie up and over at the beginning of the ledge rather than starting in the middle. I prefer seeing them that way.
Glow shorts here put in some time to get this boardslide. This is Tyler. I wonder why I can't find his last name in the list of people who checked in today?
Tyler Hunger's got a near grown up looking frontside flip.
I was going to call this kid big Ortiz, but we already have
a big Ortiz
. Huge, in fact. Khalil Brown is like big Chaz Ortiz. That's a lipslide.
When James Wright was trying bigspin front board on this rail looking like Porpe on a bad day, no one thought he could even frontside boardslide it. He showed us first try that he's got it. Maybe we'll get the bigspin front board next time.
I bet that's what the
real Big Ortiz
looks like standing next to us, except the difference is in width, not height. These three were the tech champs in the young division.
Damn, Joey Giambalvo from Nike SB rips, but this kickflip backside wasn't a roll-away today. So, we have another
Take a Poop
Eddie never poops on these backside tailslides. He does bigspin out on them.
Eddie, champ of the grown ups division. Thanks Nike SB for hooking up all Skatepark of Tampa Members with free food, 20% off all SB product, and free skating all day. Membership Appreciation Day is the first Monday of every month.
