Rick Howard's part from Girl's Goldfish has always been one of my favorites to watch. The ease in which he does his tricks mixed with his light footed style just looks perfect. The last line on the walk of stars is quintessential Rick Howard, just check out the front shuv and quick kickflip up the curb.

Here's the video recap of the Spring Roll Presented by Lakai at Skatepark of Tampa last weekend. Did you get a trick in the edit? We've still got a SPoT Life episode from everything we did outside the Contest coming later this week, too.

These days, everyone's going from analog to digital. I wonder if I can be the first human to ever go digital. Like I'll just Tweet, "Never physically leaving the house ever again, or putting pants on. I'm 100% digital now." Done. 100% keyboard only. Then I'm Facetime checking you in at every Damn Am, SPoT contest, etc. I'd have to write a fist bumps app, a high five app, and a gangster hug app to handle and replace all my physical interaction of the past. I would need a serious right hand human to cover events like I do, pointing the phone at the action where I'd just take a photo of my screen back at home with no pants on. Oh well, maybe when I'm 60. I do need a serious right hand human right now, though. Yep, a junior Digital Ninja position here at SPoT. More on that in a separate post. Anyway, one of our old favorites, Skateboarder Magazine, has gone digital. They still do a print copy of the mag, but it only goes to limited shops. We're lucky enough to get included in that. I checked out their digital version iOS app today and it's the same as the mag. Super tight.

The Digi Floral Janoskis are finally here. Foot Fetish is working slightly different on these. The pre-release and general release are on the SAME DAY, however, the pre-release is an hour before we officially open at noon in SPoT Ybor tomorrow (Wednesday, May 1st). So, if you get allocated a voucher, you will be able to get your shoes without having to wait in line starting at 11am on May 1 in Ybor. You will have until noon to redeem your voucher. At noon, we open up and all shoes are available for general release. If you get a Foot Fetish Voucher, get your ass to Ybor before noon and you're good. Thanks and if there's a line, we'll be out there with coffee, donuts, and Red Bull for ya'll as usual. See you in Ybor. Vouchers will be sent out at 10pm tonight (Tuesday, April 30). Update: Wit-E Beats has the review and Foot Fetish details here.
