A Random Saturday Night at SPoT
Words and Photos by Rob Meronek

It was nice to see how many girls are skating at the Park lately. I hit a few of them up for some photos along with some other random locals and new friends I made in the Park yesterday after the School's Out Jam Contest. Adrian Mallory also happened to show up and skate for a while. Check out Adrian's part in the Slaughterhouse video that we will be showing for free here at the Park on Saturday, June 25th at 8:00 pm. See you here and maybe we'll get a photo or two.

Ronnie Battles has only been skating for about a year, so his frontside flips still look a little mob, but so did yours when you first started, so don't hate, unless you frontside flipped your way out of the womb, Cool Guy
Nikki Jacobsen-Welch floats frontside over the hip in the bowl
This is Brandon Baker doing a boardslide on the bump to flat bar on the main street course
This is Christian Baker doing a kickflip rock and roll to fakie on the kiddie course quarter
I never got this kid's name. He's learning 5-0's on the kiddie course quarter
Philipa Harrison has a mini-ramp at her house, but still spends a lot of time skating at the Park. Since day one, girls have always skated here for free. This is a frontside grind in the bowl
Melanie Lucia is ripping on the street course and in the bowl. This is a frontside grind in the bowl
Laura Locher is an old friend of mine that just moved back to Tampa. She just started skating four days ago and is just coming up on the basics of pumping and turning and seems to be picking it up pretty quick. The vert ramp is a nice place to learn stuff like that
Ashley Harrison is just one of several girls that regularly skate at the Park. She's learning the basics of tranny in the back warehouse on the micro-mini with the help of the wall
It's definitely random that Adrian Mallory showed up on Saturday. This is a backside hurricane in the bowl
