Tampa Am at the
Skatepark Of Tampa is a tradition that’s the same age or just a few years older than most of its participants (SpoT is celebrating its 21st anniversary this year), and that perfect coincidence can only really happen now because, like like your stoner buddy Wooderson creepily and prophetically said, “I get older, they stay the same age.”
