I had to re-upload this little edit of the Vans Warped Tour Qualifier on the mini-ramp at Schoolyard Skatepark from a couple weekends ago because of some copyright issues. Anyway, here it is. Thanks to Demon Seed Skateboards, Westside Skateshop, and Schoolyard Skatepark for putting this on. See you guys at the Vans Warped Tour in Vinoy Park next weekend. – Nicks

The very highly anticipated Daylando did not disappoint…actually, the video absolutely killed it. The new full-length from TJ Gaskill features full parts from some of Florida’s finest up-and-coming rippers: Blake Carpenter, Dalton & Kanaan Dern, Garrett Miller, Kevin Shealy, Kevin Sikes, RL Durham, Thomas Burke, Timmy Knuth, and Wyatt Woodward. The quality of the skating, filming, editing, spot & music selection is as good as it gets…you would think these kids were seasoned vets. Daylando is 50 minutes of pure shredding and 30 “Bonus” minutes of some hi-jinx type action. Support skateboarding in Florida and pick up a copy of Daylando for yourself. There is an empty spot in your skateboarding video collection where Daylando is supposed to go. – Nicks

Check out the footage of last week’s Biggest POP & Best Firecracker Variation Contest @ Schoolyard Skatepark in St. Petersburg. Westside Skateshop came through big in the Biggest POP category with Yonis Molina taking the Biggest Switch Ollie and Biggest Kickflip titles, and Jimmy Mastrocolo won the Biggest Ollie. Southern Boarder team rider Austin McCahan lit the place up with the Best Firecracker Variation. As usual, a good time was had by all…what better way to show your love for America than by skateboarding!
