Tampa Pro 2005 Vert
Words and Photos by Rob Meronek

Neal Hendrix has been to every Tampa Pro Vert Contest. His runs during the jam put him ahead of PLG who was also ripping as usual with plenty of switch tricks thrown in. The format this year included one run, a 30 minute jam, then another run for each rider. Vert Finals full results can be found right here. Jake Brown was here, but he didn't skate the contest. During Best Trick he almost made a backside manual on the deck to pop shuv in - whoa! Best Trick results are right here.
