Tampa Pro Presented by Nike SB Skate Event 2013

The 19th annual Tampa Pro is going down on March 22nd-24th at the legendary Skatepark of Tampa! Proclaimed by SPoT’s own Brian Schaefer as the “Best Event of the Century” back in ’95, the Tampa Pro is well on its way to becoming the most coveted pro skateboarding event of the new millennium. As per SPoT tradition the Team Pain crew has ceremoniously destroyed last year’s street course and reconstructed a fresh setup for top skaters to annihilate in 2013.

Torey Pudwill took home top honors and a check for $20K during the street competition back in 2012 with textbook ledge tech and super human switch pop. Can he repeat this March with heavy hitters Chaz Ortiz and Sean Malto hot on his tail? Don’t count out contest kings Nyjah Huston and Ryan Sheckler, with disappointing finishes last year they are out for blood in ‘13. Be on the lookout for next level riding from Damn Ams turned pro Leo Romero and Greg Lutzka; both turned in solid runs last season and will be a threat to take home the title. Thrasher Skater of the Year David Gonzalez just missed out on top ten at last year’s semis knocking him out before the finals. Can he find a gap big enough inside the SPoT warehouse to make the competition quiver and claim Gatorade’s “Driven from Within” Award in 2013?

As always, best trick was a weekend highlight at the 2012 Tampa Pro. Rodrigo Leal defied physics with a hard flip backside nose blunt down the Silver Trucks rail to take home the win and $3,000. Will stunt wood wizards Chris Cole or Billy Marks be able to top it with their mind bending flip trick rail combos? Let’s not forget the Elephant in the room, what will Mike Vallely foot plant/disaster/gap and will it be enough to take home another Red Bull That’s S**t’s Tight recognition? Tune in all weekend starting Friday, March 22nd at 6pm EST on skateparkoftampa.com to catch the live broadcast and watch history in the making!

While top pros will be duking it out all weekend to make the finals, past Tampa Pro champions get a buy straight into Semi Finals. Alongside T-Puds expect to see these Tampa Pro champs vying for a shot at retaking the title on Sunday.
