Words & photos: Rhino
The 22nd annual Skatepark of Tampa Am contest went down this weekend. 300 ams competing in he event. It was hectic to say the least. The SPOT built some new concrete in the lot so the party zone was going off. Some insane skateboarding was going down all weekend. Here are some photos from some of the weekend in and around the SPOT. When it was all said and done 13 year old Jagger Eaton beat out 300 ams and took home first place and into the history books!
