Last Year's Coverage

How Trevor Colden Won Tampa Am 2011

It was real close between Luke Hampton and Trevor Colden, but when the dust settled, it was Trevor in first by less than a point. Check the full Final results of Tampa Am 2011 here. Independent Best Trick Results are here.

Sunday at Tampa Am 2011

Sunday at Tampa Am has the top 40 skaters out of nearly 250 that skated on Friday and Saturday. The skating is of course is top notch, but you've also got the Moat Race and Best Trick where everyone steps it up into madness that you'd never be able to land in a run. Tampa Am 2011 is a wrap and it's been another great weekend. We're already looking forward to next year. Thanks to everyone who came to be a part of what we do. We'll see you next year at the 19th Annual Tampa Am.

Friday at Tampa Am 2011

Friday Night at Dr. Octagon's Show: SPoT 19-Year Anniversary Party

Wow, Chet Childress got naked, Kool Keith got shoved off stage, we danced, we lost our voices, and @HiDefJoe logged it all for you.

Thursday at Tampa Am 2011: Welcome to Town

@HiDefJoe has an edit from the 5 Spot Art Show and Welcome to Tampa Party last night. There was a raging bowl jam, free sauce, all the homies, and work from over 100 participating artists to buy at very fair prices with all the proceeds going to Boards for Bros. Welcome to town, Tampa Am is on!
