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

Powerlines outside the Skatepark of Tampa…they’ve been doing it for a long time.
That is a pretty well-rounded quiver Jason Adams has got there. Always been hyped on Jason’s creativity and uniqueness on the board, which now has translated into his artwork.
Congratulations to ArtDeckO for taking 1st Place Judges Award last night at Realize Bradenton’s ArtSlam 2011. Geza Darrah and crew put together a hell of an event.
