Gear For a Year, Butterflies For 60 Seconds

Tim O'Connor is no stranger to Tampa Am. This year, he's back on the mic. It's going to be a weekend full of tough love. NJ Skate Shop rider James Pitonyak, however, is full stranger to Tampa Am and Damn Am. He won himself a spot in's Gear4aYear Contest. Last year's winner was also new to Tampa Am. Mike Thompson got the old belly butterflies and blew it. It's a crazy scene skating with 200 people that are killing it and sometimes it can overwhelm you if you're new to it. Good luck to you James and see you in Tampa. Check out James' footage here.
