Why Can't All Businesses Give Basic Good Service

By Rob Meronek, Posted on Thursday, February 28, 2013

What a pleasure it is to get emails like this. How come every business doesn't give service like this? It's real simple - answer your email, put yourself in other people's shoes when you address them, and just be into what you're in the business of. Really that's it. Anyway, thanks everyone for the support. The SPoT Dunk Low is in and the release is on for sure on Saturday at noon at SPoT Ybor.

We can't honor every drawing request on your online orders, but when they're as amazing as this, you get hooked up. Casey took a few minutes to accomodate this request for boobies from a customer who had a "Kardashian length marriage." Thanks for the support, ya'll!

Chris Lehman Semi Accident

By St. Pete Times, Posted on Wednesday, May 21, 2008

Back in October of 2002, SPoT Team Rider Chris Lehman kicked his board out and dove when a semi-truck that he cruised under suddenly started to take off. His legs didn't make it and got run over by the back wheels of the semi. Officer Doofy then proceeded to give him a jaywalking ticket. Yeah, more fantastic police work. Lehman almost had to have his foot amputated and was told he might not walk again. This is a 5 minute audio mp3 clip the St. Pete Times did with Chris about the accident

Condensation

By ?, Posted on Saturday, June 02, 2007

Straight plagiarism: What is condensation? Condensation is the formation of liquid drops from water vapor. It is the process which creates clouds, and so is necessary for rain and snow formation as well. Condensation usually occurs when a parcel of rising air expands and cools. If it cools enough, some of the water vapor molecules clump together faster than they are torn apart from their thermal energy. A very important part of this process is the release of the latent heat of condensation. This is the heat that was absorbed when the water was originally evaporated from the surface of the Earth. The heat removed from the surface through evaporation is released again up in the atmosphere when clouds form. This process keeps the Earth's climate cooler that it would otherwise be if there were no water. Another way in which condensation occurs is during the formation of dew.

Nike Zoom Tre Weekend
They really focused on making the Zoom Tre a very advanced technical shoe - best sole for impacts, best durability on the outside, best flexibility in the sole, etc. They gave us a pair to test out and they definitely got it right on all those points, but if you're extra picky about how your feet look like I am, these shoes might not be for you. I think they're worth a try, though. If only Dunks had soles like that. We also got to see the new line for the rest of the year. It's all top secret so no photos were allowed. High five to whoever's designing the Nike apparel. It's looking super good
