Independent always comes through for SPoT for Tampa Pro with some sick giveaways for the Best Trick contest, product toss and more. Check out their new line of hard goods and apparel on this week’s “Case of the Mondays”.
Skatepark of Tampa
We’ve made it to the month of March but a good portion of skaters are still buried in ice and snow. The Skatepark of Tampa has posted this teaser video for the 21st Annual Tampa Pro that will take place in just over a couple weeks. If you haven’t thawed out by then, maybe you should consider buying a plane ticket and catching this one in person.
Today, Street League Skateboarding has proudly announced its partnership with Brian Schaefer and Skatepark of Tampa to form a true qualification system in skateboarding that spans from amateur events all the way to the SLS Pro Super Crown.
As a result of the partnership, streetleague.com will serve specifically as the exclusive platform and website for live streaming of Tampa Pro and Tampa Am.
The pair of companies will also be collaborating with SPoT in introducing an evolved version of the Damn Am Series as an elite qualifier of amateur skateboarding contests, starting in 2015. This evolved version of the Damn Am Series will qualify the world’s best amateurs into both the Tampa Am and ultimately, future SLS Pro Opens.
