The 22nd annual Tampa Am is just over a month away. The history of the Am includes a non-stop stream of future legends who came and ripped it, and that’s why it still matters. You always know the winner is basically guaranteed a pro career. What he does with it is the only variable. Here’s a link to some footage that looks to have been filmed on a road trip to the Am back in 1999. Mike Peterson was the champ that year. The footage also shows us a Baby Shecks with a flame helmet, big pants, Pontus Alv, Bam before he was famous, Jerry Hsu focusing his body, and Eric Ellington doing a biggie front board down the handrail, which incidentally won Best Trick that year. Things change, huh?
