I stopped by Part 2 of 4 of the 93 ‘Til Infinity art show series at The Bricks last weekend. Four of the many decks that were submitted by various artists for the show were chosen to be printed on limited edition Skatepark of Tampa boards and will be available for sale all across the world. There were also a bunch of killer old classic photos of some pretty legendary people skating the park over the years. Check the Upcoming Events page on the mag for all the festivities. Also, be sure to check out SPoT 20 Year Experience Episode 3 with Felipe Gustavo below. – Nicks

In 2013, the Skatepark of Tampa will be celebrating their 20 Year Anniversary. Part of the celebrating has already gotten underway with 93 ‘Til Infinity, a 4-part artshow series at The Bricks. 93 ‘Til Infinity features 20 different artists creating artwork from their own personal experiences at SPoT through the years. Part 1 took place a few weeks back and Sean Orr was on hand to snap some photos (see below). Skatepark of Tampa’s photos are here. Part 2 of 93 ‘Til Infinity is coming up on Saturday, November 17th at The Bricks and also includes the release of Moat Water, which is SPoT’s 20th Anniversary Brew from the folks at Cigar City Brewing!
Also, to help celebrate SPoT’s milestone, every Wednesday from now until the Tampa Pro in March, the RIDE Channel will air a new episode of Skatepark of Tampa 20 Year Experience. 20 different Pros, Ams, and industry leaders share their personal SPoT stories and experiences with you. Check out the Intro with SPoT founder Brian Schaefer and Episode 1 with Stefan Janoski below.

The Skatepark of Tampa is featured in The Berrics latest Field Ops segment. These dudes have contributed so much to skateboarding over the last 18 years and they are here to stay. Check it out.
The Bricks and SPoT Skate Shop Ybor celebrated their 1st birthday on Saturday night, and in typical SPoT fashion they threw a rager. They even built a mini-ramp out back just for the occasion. The ERGO team was in town and they got in on the action as well. Nobody does it like the Skatepark of Tampa. Check out this nice little montage of all of the evening’s festivities.

Matt Hensley, Flogging Molly’s accordion player, also happens to be one of the most influential street skateboarders of all time…which gives me an idea for this week’s “Time Capsule Thursdays”.
