RIDE Channel has footage from Friday at the 2013 Tampa Pro of the Team Manager/ Industry V.I.P. Contest, Tampa Am Vert, and the rained-out “Legends” Vert Session. Check it out.
Unfortunately, the “Legends” Vert Session at the 2013 Tampa Pro turned out to be only about an hour of practice between storms. It was a hell of a lot of fun while it lasted though! I managed to get a few good shots, and a pretty heated bowl session resulted because of the rain. Make sure to tune into the live web-cast at 2 p.m. EST HERE. – Nicks
