Tampa Pro 2017 - Finals Coverage

Posted on Monday, March 6, 2017 by Chris

An amazing end to one hell of a weekend. Tampa Pro has once again delivered some of the best skating on the planet. This year we add a new name to the list of winners, and that person is Louie Lopez. We couldn't be more stoked for Louie, who is a super humble dude and definitely deserved it. Check out some photos from Finals and stay tuned for the SPoT Life episode, coming later today.
