In the early 90's, Tony Hawk found one of the only vert sessions in existence happening in Tampa. He gives praise and talks of skating Tampa with former Birdhouse teammates, Paul Zitzer and local powerhouse Mike Frazier. Tampa was fortunate to make history as Tony set his sites on Tampa as the place to ride away from the first ever kickflip 540. Tony notes the importance of the contests and to "...witnessing some of the heaviest street events..." and gives respect to Eric Koston, Tom Penny, and Kareem Campbell. Not wanting to miss Tampa Pro 1998, he took a red-eye flight showing up to practice before the park even opened. Later that day he won Tampa Pro and was immediately back on a plane to skate X Games that same day. Sit back and enjoy another experience from one of the greatest contributors to skateboarding of all time.

Tony's got an ollie over a half million dollar whip in this Ride Channel footage. If you make like $20 million dollars a year or something, then this is about a week's pay we're talking about. So, to most skateboarders this would be like jumping a $400 bucket. Oh well, check the jump here:
