"Tampa Pro is like the Woodstock of Skateboarding" - That's a pretty accurate description of this weekend from our own Brian Schaefer. There's freaks galore, and most of them are the Pros. I mean some of the tricks going down are like straight circus shit. Throw in the occasional magician doing tricks and Zion Wright's dad with his drum circle / seance and you've got a great mix of personalities...and we love it all.
