The Bro Bowl: Historic for Us, But a Small Piece of Something Bigger

by Rob
Wednesday, June 12, 2013
On June 11, 2013 I attended a meeting at Tampa City Hall concerning historic preservation. I remember seeing a petition on the internet to "Save the Bro Bowl" and I think any of us (and many did) would sign a petition to save something that we all have skated from being demolished. The petition that was signed by many, lead people to believe that the government was viciously tearing down a skateboarding landmark with no alternative plan, this wasn't really the case.

My History With The Bro Bowl in Tampa

by Rob
Monday, June 10, 2013
When I first moved to Tampa, I was at the height of my skateboarding life as far as ability goes. Jumping down stairs and gaps, going on the endless treasure hunt for spots like ledges, manny pads, and even transition like backyard mini-ramps and vert ramps. Of course I found Tampa's oldest "skatepark", the Bro Bowl. As every other skater I rolled with, we avoided the Bro Bowl because it sucked for anyone who wasn't stuck in the last generation of skateboarding...

Numbers Show Everyone Quitting Skateboarding: Nerdsday Thursday

by Wit-E
Friday, April 19, 2013
The quality is definitely on point this time and they are well worth the price. These sneakers were built for summertime stunting. If you don't own a pair of Janoskis, you are definitely slipping. This model is extremely comfortable and the design is versatile.
