Throwback Tuesdays

I'll never forget Tampa Pro 2000. I was about to turn 16, skateboarding was my life, (still is) and Tampa Pro was the Holy Grail. I was at the park open to close soaking it all in every day. I was in awe of Mike Carroll and Andrew Reynolds, entertained by Sean Sheffey, and confused by Bam Margera's fresh dyed blonde hair. By the way, resembling Eminem had no effects on his switch backside tailslides, a.k.a SSBSTS. It was also the first time I saw Tony Hawk and Steve Cab skate. I'm not talking about just vert either, they were hitting the handrail in the street course as well. I could go on and on...but you should just watch 411VM's video from 2000 below. I also hope to see everyone I just mentioned out on the course this weekend.
