It was a long day with 133 people taking a run. That’s a little bit more than an average day during Tampa Am. Here are some random things I remember from the contest:
- The winner of the 16 and Up Division was 12-year-old Kenny Liszewski from Sarasota. He had two perfect runs which included a backside flip into the step up and a nollie backside 180 into it.
- Next time you’re in the Shop, high five Ryan Dodge for winning the Sponsored division with a last minute entry and a perfect run. He was doing frontside 50-50 to nollie back 180 out and 360 flips into the step up.
- SPoT local Jereme Knibbs is on a plane to Vegas right now. He's moving there. Hopefully this isn’t his last contest here.
- Kevin Sullivan won the 13 to 15 Division. He asked to use the camera while I judged sponsored and for some reason I was like, “Ok, here you go.” He took 200 photos before the battery ended his flash assault on everyone in the Contest. His timing was off on most of them, but a few turned out ok as you can see in the photo list below.
- I heard the first girls’ product toss got kinda nuts. Sorry I missed it. If I post any more chick photos I would just have more people throwing the “sexist” word out, anyway. Sorry I’m not bisexual. Guys like the upskirts and chick chill shots. So what do you girls want to see photos of? Dudes with full side pipes rockin’? Or them sitting down with shorts on, legs open, and a clear view to the nut sack? More skaters with their shirts off? I don’t know. Let me know what you want and I’ll have my next impromptu photography assistant hook it up for you.
- After two second place finishes in the last two events, Gavin Bishop finally moved up to first on this one in the 9 to 12 Division.
- 8 and Under was pretty fun to watch as usual. Clint Bestwick has won the last two.
- Our next All Ages Contest will be in November – The Harvest Jam. See you here.
