Thursday at Tampa Pro is pretty much business as usual around here: tightening up the course, making sure everything's in place, and high-fiving friends, family and Pros as they get to town. We took it to the Bricks after the park closed for the SPoT & Friends art show.
No doubt Ray Barbee has had a huge impact on skateboarding, ever since the casual street lines of "Ban This" blessed our eyeballs. So it's no surprise that Transworld chose Ray as part of their "Legends" video series. The man himself will be joining us to kick off the first official Tampa Pro party on Friday night.
Evan Smith was a Florida kid that I remember seeing skate SPoT a bunch when he was still super young. Yeah he was rad, but he hadn’t quite yet reached that “Evan Smith” level of rad. And then his Mag Minute came out and I was like, “Whaaaaaaat?!”

Just in case you somehow missed last year's Tampa Pro, and didn't catch Shane O'Neill's buttery winning run in the Finals, here's the clip. Will he pull it off again this year? Get your tickets and come find out.

Everyone keeps asking, who're you looking out for during Tampa Pro? Who do you think is going to win the contest? There's such great talent these days it could literally go to anyone and the Element team is always in our top picks. Nyjah, Evan Smith, Greyson Fletcher, Westgate, Julian Davidson, Nick Garcia, and the list goes on.
