NYC's Sleep Skateboards have been killing it for a minute now, and we're stoked to finally be carrying them at SPoT. They even put our boy Derick Glancy on, with good reason - the dude rips.

With the 5 Year Anniversary of our sister shop in Ybor and The Bricks restaurant/bar/chill spot tomorrow, we had to take a look back at how it all started. Check out our little documentary "Building the Bricks" and don't forget to get your tickets to the huge Block Party starting at 3pm. There will be skating, bands, beer, food, prizes and a whole lot more, plus proceeds from ticket sales go to benefit our Boards For Bros charity. Don't forget to RSVP on Facebook here and we'll see you there! Video by Joe Pelham
