On the road from Tampa to Naples we passed a huge two wheeled vehicle brigade escorted by police.

The autograph onslaught started as soon as we walked in. Looks like a plain old pen works just as good as a Sharpie.

Jereme's on this thing that almost killed Porpe last time we were here.

I need a more powerful flash to freeze the blur of Jereme's big ass gap ollie.

We had a game of SKATE with just about everyone in the place. That's Shelby Meyer.

Everyone, regardless of skill or shirt, was welcome to join in the game of SKATE. It made for a real fun time.
Jereme's got all types of various jumps into this steep bank. This one's an ollie over the box into it.

Chase and his hardflips went the distance in the games of SKATE.
Alex Brawley was the last man standing in the games of SKATE.

There were tons of "I'm chilling with Bryan Herman" phone photos going down.

Fred Gall's throwing out Habitat stuff in this analog product toss, but stay tuned for a Habitat Digital Product Toss. They're sending a nice box of gear.

I guess Naples is a rich town, but it seems they're raising some nice, appreciative kids here.
SPoT's charity, Boards for Bros, has teamed up with Emerica to help raise more stuff for the cause. Check the site for more info.

The locals were killing it, too.

Over on Porpe's death wall, Fred Gall has an ollie up to boardslide to fakie.

Over on the 10-stair, someone threw down a silly trick which sparked all kinds of madness like this doubles early grab. Thanks for the entertainment.
Porpe limped away from this one. No switch ollie this time, so it's another Take a Poop.

More entertainment down the 10-stair, this time from Alex Brawley. Fakie-hanna - wow.

On the way home, somewhere between Naples and here, Fred spotted this from the road. It almost looks like Skatelite.

This thing is a mold for those highway sections back there. Fred's got a scary roll-in on it before he had to get on a plane an hour later.
