friends of spot

Frank Branca has been getting a lot of footage on the sly, and just put together this rad little video featuring a whole bunch of ripping by some local faces. Presenting Friends of SPoT, with James Coleman, Brandon Knowles, Manny Claudio, Chris Blake, Dylan Perry, Uncle Sam Bellipanni, Sean Conover, Bryan Pederson, Chad Poore, Yonis Molina, Chris Jata, Dean Donnini, Danny Fuenzalida, and Eric McKenney.

Dylan Perry's Tampa State of Mind

During Tampa Pro this year, the homie Dylan Perry took Pacsun on a tour of some local Tampa spots and Ybor City and what he likes to skate. If you didn't catch it on Street League's site, we put it here for you. Check out his Tampa State of Mind. Dylan also makes some pretty rad custom griptape, which you can pick up here.

A Case of the mondays: the kayo corp

Kayo always comes in hot with a slew of fresh looking product from DGK, Organika, Expedition One and Gold Wheels. Let's check in with Luke Pallone and see what they brought us this round.

Spring Roll check-in with Ronnie Sandoval

Time for another check-in with the Lakai boys to see what we're in for when Ronnie Sandoval, Jon Sciano and Riley Hawk hit Tampa for our Spring Roll all ages contest, presented by (you guessed it) Lakai. If you missed Ronnie's "Living Free" part that came out earlier this year, make sure you hit play below. It's an all out shredfest through the streets of San Pedro with some concrete thrown in for good measure. Hopefully we'll get to see some of that same rippage on our concrete course. There are still spots open to skate, so go register here. Full contest details are here.

Zaturdays: Slam or land - a tribute

I hate to admit it, but I've always been a bailer. This first became painfully apparent after I met and started skating with Mike Frazier, who is the poler opposite of a bailer. I can't think of a fitting word for it, but expressions like 'all in,' 'do or die,' and 'going for it' do a pretty good job of summing up the way he skated. Still skates, actually. Read more.
