Tampa Pro 2017 - Practice Coverage

Posted on Saturday, March 4, 2017 by Chris

Welcome to another epic Tampa Pro weekend at SPoT. It's the 23rd time we've put one of these on and it just gets better every year. Thanks to everyone who showed up, whether you traveled from overseas or right next door. We're stoked you're here. Yesterday consisted of mainly getting people registered and lots of practice, followed by the somewhat popular T.M. / Industry V.I.P. contest. Check out Bart's photos from the day and stay tuned for the SPoT Life episode coming a little later.

If you walked into the park this morning saw Tato Feliciano bustin’ Finger Flip Lien Tails, you would know like clockwork the VIP/Industry contest is well underway.
Tampa Bay Locs Brandon and Eric check what all the hype is about.
VIP/Industry contest overlord Bob Reynolds strikes a pose with a Madonna.
Gabe Clement signs em in and straps on bands with extreme enthusiasm.
New to the registration game, Derick Glancy is also all smiles.
Our top 3 from the Industry blunder... Ira Ingram, Tato Feliciano, and Nate Alton; they aren’t bummed..they’re just tired.
Enough of these industry Goons, lets get to the good shit, like this Tre Fakes from Ishod Wair.

No special treatment for T-Puds, gotta use the portable like everybody else.
