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! Make sure to check the Upcoming Events page on the mag regularly for more events like this at Schoolyard Skatepark and all over Florida.

Local ripper Ricky Vipperman has some sick footage in this new AM clip from Keystone Skateboards.
I forgot I had a YouTube Channel…I’m going to try and have random video clips to check out on a regular basis. Check out this hefty backside flip that Ricky Vipperman put down at Lake Vista earlier this year.
Carlos Leon’s 40″ Ollie was enough to win the “High Ollie” Contest.
Connor Askew’s Frontside Nosebluntslide all the way through the corner and across this ledge won the “Best Trick” Contest.
Ricky Vipperman’s buttery Frontside Flip was good enough for a bunch of free swag.
What a perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Thanks to Donny Barley, Element Skateboards, and Johnny King @ Orlando Skatepark for making it happen.
