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
Steezy and BLNT collaborated to bring you new levels of traction under your feet. Pick up a sheet or two or ten at Westside Skateshop and 688 Skateshop.

While everyone else was at SURF EXPO this weekend, the Soft Hoagie Rolls x Westside Skateshop x Schoolyard Skatepark crew attended the 2012 SMURF EXPO. The SMURF EXPO is very similar to the SURF EXPO and was also taking place in the Orange County Convention Center…but, is just a little different. See for yourself:
Maybe I’m just getting old, but all of the bands at the 2012 Vans Warped Tour in St. Pete yesterday sounded the same. Someone at one point told me that it was the same band that had played a four hour set, and I believed him. Anyway, at least the skating was ripping. Here is a little sample of the shredding that went down on this hot, July afternoon in St. Pete, Florida. – Nicks
