Boards for Bros Assembly Line May 2012

The SPoT Staff had another volunteer assembly line for Boards for Bros last night. Thanks for all your contributions that will allow us to give away all these boards at the end of the year. Get more information on Boards for Bros here.

We're in the pits and bowels of Skatepark of Tampa, also known as Frosty's Dungeon.
Those used boards you drop off all year long end up here, where we start an assembly line to match them up with your other used hardgoods, as well as new stuff that your favorite companies donate.
The line starts with the bearing press.
The line ends with the hardware clamp down. Some boards are 100% new thanks to companies like Venture and Spitfire.
Sometimes it's a mix of new and old or sometimes all old. All that matters is it's a rideable skateboard.
The SPoT Staff volunteers time to put all these boards together. Pictured here is Lance Johnson, Luke Pallone, Porpe, Sam Bellipanni, Josh Wilson, Matt Woods, Crash, and Treshan O'Shaughnessy. Thanks for getting it done, ya'll.
