It was one humid weekend full of endless gnar… but we survived it! Tampa was great. The day began with the moat race (photos from that in the previous post.) Afterwards, Anthony Schultz had the first heat in the semi-finals. Congrats to active pro, Trevor Colden for getting 4th place, & also congrats to Luan Oliveira for winning it all! Here are the photos I took from that day.
How did I survive the last night of Tampa? That’s a good question. Spent the last night with Anthony Schultz, Billy Marks, oh hey and Stance‘s Erica Yary too! This is Tampa! We got to go hard on the last day! Sushi dinner it was. The Bricks in Ybor was an added touch. I spent the time there browsing all the sick photos from past moat races. At last, we ended up singing the night away at the Karaoke bar. What a great way to end it! Thanks Tampa, you were so kind!
The next day on Sunday, I woke up to a text message from Fred Van Schie, our dude Anthony Schultz was the first dude out to practice in the morning and got this clip. Already Reposted & Retweeted! Realizing that the Moat Race was starting soon so I got outta bed and skated down to the skatepark. Couldn’t miss out on the legendary happening!
Just got done from our Team dinner with Billy Marks & Anthony Schultz. Right when we got back to the park, the concrete jam was poppin’. I couldn’t get any closer for those action shots so I watched from a distance. Active team rider, Chris Gregson came up on some cash at the Best Trick! Came late and missed out on Patman & Robin but I did catch the Misfits cover band, Psycho 78. Peep the photos.
So this is Saturday, the next day after Friday, duh… Stoked to see that our Active team rider and good homie, Anthony Schultz made it in the semi-finals! If you were watching the live webcast, he had a pretty killer run. Billy Marks got $50 for a tre flip to flat too. Here are some photos from that day.
My first night in Ybor. I took a longer nap than expected on the count of the time change and not getting enough sleep from the flight going straight to SPoT… enough complaining, woke up late for the after party so I didn’t catch the first couple of bands that played but I did get to see Agnostic Front! Comin’ straight outta New York!
Oh, and it was my first time using Über too, great app!
It was my first “red-eye” flight experience to Tampa and tagging along was Billy Marks, none other than what was simply imagined. Late night from Ontario, California – Overlay in Phoenix, Arizona – then to Tampa, Florida.
