Nike SB Go Skateboarding Day 2018 - Tampa

Posted on Thursday, June 28, 2018 by Chris

SPoT, Westside Skateshop and Nike SB teamed up this year for Go Skateboarding Day, and skills paid off (literally) with $2,000 in cash for tricks being given away. As a bonus, we were joined by Blake Carpenter, who got everyone hyped up from the Bro Bowl to Skatepark of Tampa. Check out the recap.

Anthony Marshello from Westside was helping us hand out Nike SB GSD kits that included a sick graphic Tee with art from Todd Bratrud & stickers loaded into a dope little sling bag. Thanks Anthony for all your help and thanks to Nike SB & Westside for teaming up with us today!
