The first official day of competition at Tampa Pro 2018 got started yesterday with professional skateboarders from all over the world looking for that top spot and $20,000 in cash. Qualifiers lit up quick and Yuto Horigome and Manny Santiago came up on the two top spots, which means they go straight to the Finals. Before the dust could clear, it was right into the Independent Best Trick contests, where necks were snapping all over the place from so many insane tricks at once.
