168052039023057061 042035148101058170 (2)049173054175Well I have to say this was the best Tampa Pro so far. It was S.P.O.T. ‘s 20th anniversery which also was Girl skateboards 20 year as well.  Thursday was the Girl art show at The Bricks which had some limited art as well as some props from Yeah Right as well as some great Photos. Friday I got there with my crew and hit  downtown at Ybor Where we came upon the rap battle of all Battles . One white kid verses the world very entertaining for sure. He had a crowd that formed around him and he was taking down fools left and right. Mike Caroll was out in full effect as well super cool dude. Saturday woke up we hit bro bowl . We get there it was invaded by long board kooks but once they left the sesh was on. We headed over to The Bricks but was so packed we just went over to the shop where I have to say that is a cool shop not too big not to small just right. The employees were super nice so that stoked me out more. We left and headed to SPOT and just the amount of pros from Jeff Grosso to Eric Koston was insane . Lance had designed the trophies and shirts for the 20year celebration as well as Girl and Fourstar which was pretty rad. Ran into Rick Howard which every time i have seen him he has been the coolest. always taking the time to talk and is just all around nice guy so always support dat guy any way you can. At three free beer was on and my chick was all over that after awhile it was barge at will for her. I would want a pic with someone but didnt want to just barge in until they were done Jen had no problem bustin in . I was laughing the whole time. I see her near the vert ramp im like get over here she smiles and goes to the back of the ramp next thing I know she just barged the ramp and was up on deck while the contest is going on. Thats where the sick picture of Max schaff came from good times that day. Sunday I m in the bathroom and my friend Chris comes in the room I hear him say I got company it turns out the cops were in our room. Cars were being broken into during the night and he fit a similar description haha sure he did. I opened the bathroom door while taking a shit so I would not get shot when i walk out the bathroom mind you im pooping while talking to the cops . so they searched the room found nothing asked us why we were in Tampa we said for contest at SPOT. One cop was you skate i was like I do . The lady cop was like arent you to old to skate . I was like huh since when is there an age limit so I called her out and showed here some footy of me off my phone and said gonna have to eat your words now and the other cop laughed and said looks like you do have to eat your words . I laughed they were cool but then I heard she was talking like well I didnt see any splean busting action psst shows how narrow minded some people are yet she is a woman and a cop im sure if I would of insulted her like that she would of been offended over that saying . Thats why some people will never get it. We head over to the Bricks and actually got to eat there which food was amazing. The highlight of the breakfast experience was Jason Jesse was a table behind us which was cool to see that he even made it to Tampa. Left the bricks and headed to Spot for the finals and the molt race. I got to say the molt race gets nastier every year . Now eggs ,meat whatever you can find was tossed at the kids in the molt and sometimes getting people on the sidelines . The skating was gnar the days were awesome and i wish it was still going on but some people have to go back to work . Happy 20th SPOT it was a blast.
