School's Out Jam 2010 Presented by KR3W

Another sweltering June in Tampa, another School's Out Jam. The only difference this year is that Ryan, Rob, and Brian were out of town hosting Manny Mania in Charlotte, NC. It made no matter though, because Porpe and Body took over announcing duties while Justin Ryan, Pat Stiener, and Dylan Perry judged.

This year KR3W was the sponsor of the event. Also big thanks to our friends at Tijuana Flats for providing us with a delicious lunch and a keg of Negro Modelo beer. Also thanks to Bentley Salon for providing more haircut vouchers for the winners in all of the Divisions.

Overall everything went off without a hitch and it was another fun School's Out Jam. Thanks for coming out to our Contest and supporting Skatepark of Tampa.

We like to start the day off with a game of pool before these All Ages Contests. Dylan Perry knocked the eight ball in and defeated Porpe.

Barak showed me his new flash drive. Smokin' fools with mad files, son.

The Norton twins entered their first contest Saturday. On Darius' first run he went down the roll in, took a gruesome slam, and then skated his next run. His brother wasn't down to skate after seeing that though.
An 8 & Under Who Dat? Roll off the ledge.

Thanks to KR3W for hooking it up.
Darius in his second run. He and his brother got free lessons with Wizard Smoke for that slam. You can take lessons with Wizard, too, on Saturday and Sunday mornings at 9am.

When you're under 4' tall, this is a big quarter-pipe to drop in on.

Lots of the little guys had some good tricks like this rock to fakie on the bank to wall. I think this is Tyler Hunger? If not then Who Dat? strikes again.
This kid tried this last All Ages Contest and broke is toe, but nailed it second try this time.
This is a line up of some of the most notorious local lurkers at SPoT.
Anxiety runs high for the tykes in the Contest. One kid couldn't take the pressure and threw up on the course. Barak handled clean up.
The judges enjoying delicious Tijuana Flats for lunch.
The 9 to 12 top three.
This KR3W shirt is for the children, despite the fact that this shirt would fit me.
Like cheetahs on a gazelle.
Porpe is like the grown up equivalent of a bully. He loves being lame to people sometimes. Maybe it's some kind of Napoleon complex he's got. So he felt the need to throw this shirt at me. Either that, or he was trying to hook it up. But I doubt that. Thanks for throwing this shirt at me, Porpe.

Everybody loves Knibbs. He makes friends everywhere. He made friends with the Modelo girls.

If you show up to our Contests and rip like this kid with his switch 360, why don't you let the guy shooting photos know your name?
Skater Profile: Who Dat?
For real, a switch 360 and an inward heel down the stairs in your Jam means I want to know your name so I can compliment your ripping on the website. Thanks.
Skater Profile: Who Dat?
I think Body was envious of how leisurely this kid's gear was. Boardslide.
Despite working at the Park in the Shop five days a week, I still don't know everyone. Not sure if this Who Dat? is a Tampon or not. Three flip snapper down the stairs.
I was really hyped to see my old friends from Daytona, Evan Ahlswede and Jake Price. I went to Photo School out there and we used to skate together a lot. Good times.
Christian Baker used to hold the Snack Bar down, but has since moved on. He hasn't moved on from being a Park local though. Front shove over the pyramid.

Last Thursday I had to work a Park Rental and it was the most fun ever. It was a bunch of people who wanted to party and skate. This guy was in on that sesh and he came back to do this nollie 180 switch front feeble.
Barak and I share the same sentiment as this sticker.

Thanks again to KR3W for sponsoring the Contest.
Look at that girl with the white shirt eyeing up all the free product.
