Tampa Am 2022: Finals Photos

Posted on Monday, November 14, 2022 by Matt Shail

It was a hard fought fight and it has become clear that the skateboarding coming out of Japan is hard to beat. The beautiful thing about skateboarding is that it is real. You cannot cheat. You cannot pretend. It's 100% authentic and raw skateboarding and that is exactly what we got out of this contest. See you all at Tampa Pro in 2023!
