SPoT Skate Shop Staff Recommendations

Meet the SPoT Staff

A place is nothing without its staff. Below is the crew that makes it happen around here and some of the products they like from our Shop.

Tristan Mershon

Tristan joined our shop staff in May of '15. Tristan also films projects around the park and can be found behind the lens of a VX in Tampa. Follow @tbmersh to check footage

Recommendations from Tristan Mershon:

Paul Zitzer

One of the key persons leading to the creation of SPoT, Paul has always been around in one way or another. In September, we official welcomed Paul as an employee of the park. Catch Paul at all of our events, local & abroad, as well as posting to the blog.

Chris Preston

Chris joins the staff in Feb 2013 as our new product photographer and all things artsy like flyers, logos, and other design work keeping new things looking tight and slowly updating old, not so beautifully designed things we've done in the past.

Sam Bellipanni

Sam holds it down for the SPoT Team and you can catch him in the shop as well. He makes it look easy on a board with a bag of tricks like no other. He also maybe the guy to teach you how to kickflip during a skate lesson.

Brian Schaefer

Schaefer started this place in 1993 and lived here while it got off the ground. Then he went and started a bar in Ybor called The Bricks. Find him there and he'll most likely buy you a beer and then bus your table.
