Luckily, Mother Nature gave us a break and the skating continued under clear skies.

Right around this time, we started feeling some raindrops and thought the day was over, so we all rushed to get a group photo.

Some of them were inspired them to make their own griptape art.

One of the kids asked me if I would draw something on his griptape, which then quickly turned into all the kids wanting something on their griptape.

Uncle Sam does lessons here at the park on Sundays and is also a SPoT Skate Camp counselor, so if you need a skateboarding coach, there are very few people that can do it better.

Seeing all these kids learning how to skate made some adults want to try it too. That's my wife Catherine (another Boards for Bros volunteer) getting some help from Santa...

A lot of these kids live right next to a skatepark, but come from families that may never be able to afford to buy them a skateboard. Seeing their faces light up makes all our efforts worth it.

Bess the Book Bus and Giving Tree music are two more non-profit groups that are always helping us out at these events. The kids that were waiting to get skateboards also got to go pick out a free book and sit in on a drum circle while they were here.

Half the fun of skateboarding is setting it up. You're either a sticker person or not. The "Bald Eagle Forever" stickers are a reminder of our fallen homie, Matt Woods, who was a big time supporter of Boards for Bros and an all-around great dude.

First priority: get your name on your board. A lot of these kids were surprised they actually got to keep theirs, so I think personalizing each deck really drove it home. Clint Smith and Raechel Barfield were on hand to help out.

For anyone who doesn't know, Boards for Bros is Skatepark of Tampa's official 501(3)(c) non-profit charity started by Schaefer and Paul Schmitt back in the day. With the help and hard work of Michelle Box, along with countless volunteers over the years, it has grown to expand to places like New Jersey, NYC, Orange County, North Carolina and even Cuba and Canada. That means a lot of happy kids out there...these two have a lot to smile about.

Story be told Fernando is a straight savage! As the contest ended he was on the brink of landing this Noseblunt Slide when every one stormed the concrete for the toss. He waited for everyone to leave, cleaned the garbage up, when it started raining, and still was going for the trick all while his friend Jacopo was nice enough to try to dry the crete’ between tries. Sure enough within a few tries through patience and perseverance he got it!! Fernando, you the real MVP!!!

Before everyone was even done skating the crowd mobbed the course and demanded free gear and wouldn’t leave until demands were met..wasn’t much else we could do as they had us way out numbered.

This poor kid got javelined in the head with a board, so we hooked him up with some free swag. I don’t think that's gonna help the bump on his head, but at least maybe it'll cheer him up a bit.
