Round 3 of the nighttime parties begins and this one didn't disappoint. Everyone headed to the Bricks for part 2 of our Deck the Walls art show, and Czar for their Friday night Filthy Richard party. Check out some photos from that, as well as a ripping skate session on our new Concrete Course.

Never in the 21 year history of Tampa Am has a local won a golden ticket to the Finals. Until today. Jereme Knibbs who’s been ruling the scene here for years and years came through like all the bros have been waiting for. Front three over the rail, backside sugarcane around the bowl corner, and of course that Knibbs butter steeze all had the judges scoring him higher than approximately 120 other skaters from everywhere in the world. Oscar Meza, Chase Webb, and Tristan Funkhouser all managed to make the 16 cut into Sunday’s semi finals as well. But first we’ve got another round of qualifying on the schedule for Saturday, and even if it’s half as good as today’s it’ll still be amazing. Check out Alex Uncapher's photos from the day here and stay tuned for the full SPoT Life edit coming your way tomorrow.

Tampa Am is famous for two things, amazing skateboarding and the nightlife that follows. The Welcome to Tampa party kicked off the weekend in classic Tampa style, with a bowl jam, art show, high fives, free brews, and the best times anyone could ask for. Check out the full SPoT Life edit below and click here for some photos of the night from Alex Sherrer. Look for an edit and some shots from Fridays Qualifiers coming your way soon...we're just getting started.

250 of the world’s best Amateur skateboarders descend on Tampa for the kickoff to Tampa Am weekend, with Europe, Canada, and South America all heavily represented. Thursday’s practice looked more like a cage match at times, but the real battle starts once qualifying begins. Check out the SPoT Life edit from that day and stay tuned for footage of last night's Welcome to Town party coming soon.
