SKATE: Tampa Pro 2013 Presented by Nike SB: March 21 - 24, 2013

Tampa Pro 2013 Presented by Nike SB: March 21 - 24, 2013

This year marks the 20th anniversary of SPoT and the 19th annual Tampa Pro. As far as contests go this one is the real deal. Running nearly two decades, it's the skate world equivalent of spring break: Florida, mayhem, humiliation and glory. It's a time to skate with friends you haven't seen all winter and get ready to kick off another year of skateboarding.

A live broadcast starts on Friday, March 22 at 6 pm EST and will be shown at http://skateparkoftampa.com/tampapro
