In 1994 Danny Way broke his neck and was afraid he would never return to skateboarding. In 1996, less than two years after his injury, he attended Tampa Pro for his first appearance back in the skate scene. His intention was to become acquainted with skateboarding. However, he did more than just that by winning Vert and placing 2nd in Street. He notes, "Tampa was the catalyst" that gave him the assurance that his skate career wasn't over and got him out "from a place of such darkness." Enjoy the episode, which explains Danny's determination and ability that allows him to conquer anything that stands in his way.
Skatepark of Tampa is celebrating 20 years of skateboarding. Countless memories have been created over the past two decades, and to help relive those experiences we asked 20 pros, ams, and industry leaders to share their SPoT stories with us.
