Below is a message from Barak to everyone who participated this weekend:

Dear Friends,

Our final All Ages Skateboarding Contest of the year on November 
17th was very successful.  There were over 120 entrants and about 
250 spectators cheering them on throughout the day.  The prizes 
packs for 1st through 5th were huge, and the three huge product 
tosses even had some of the parents diving for boards and other products.

The Spitfire Best Trick Contest on the “Scorpion” was insane.  
Some of these kids were going balls out on the steep quarter pipe 
and ripping very creatively.  The top three skaters received Spitfire 
prize packs compliments of Deluxe. 

All banners that we received were well hung all over the street 
course.  I would like to thank all of the companies that once 
again supported our skateboarder run contests for skateboarders.

The Skatepark of Tampa would like to recognize the following 
companies: DNA Distribution, Flexfit, Tum Yeto, Mastermind 
Distribution, Aesthetics, Elwood, Consolidated Skateboards, 
Transworld, Circa, Shannon Pacific, NC Clothing, Illenium, 
Savier, Ally Containment Company, ATM, Lost, Volcom, Lib Technologies, 
Killing Machine Hardware, NHS Distribution, Matix, Deluxe Distribution,
