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.

Ripping Concrete at Tampa Pro

If you weren't here for the Converse Concrete Jam during Tampa Pro, you missed out on one of the most insane after sessions / after parties we've ever had here at SPoT. I'm not a name-dropping man, but if I had to throw out a few, they'd be Greyson Fletcher, Ben Raybourn, Chris Gregson, Ishod Wair, Tyler Coffman and Schaefer with the Eggplant ender. Check out this all-concrete throwdown presented by Monster.

Tristan Mershon's SPoT Locals

We've been seeing this kid Tristan around the park a lot lately, getting footage from some familiar faces. The result is this video he posted to YouTube, simply titled "Skatepark of Tampa" and is a great example of the local talent that rips here on the daily. Watch what happens when Alex Sperando, Wesley Box, Alejandro Burnell, Chuckie Wooder, Giancarlo Scalise, and Treshan O'Shaugnessy come through for a few hours.
