Tampa Pro is one of the biggest professional contests in the business and we’ve been designing and constructing their courses for the past decade. It’s an occasion to witness an unbelievable level of skateboarding and a meeting ground for professional skateboarders all over the world to showcase their abilities and compete to be the Tampa Pro champion taking home the $20,000 in cash and earning the coveted title.
This year was one to remember, Luan Oliveira took 1st place beating out a heavy hitting group of finalists, which included crowd favorites such as Shane O’neill, Ishod Wair, and Nyjah Huston. During the Independent Best Trick, Ryan Decenzo took 1st place followed by Florida native Timmy Knuth placing 2nd , and Kelvin Hoefler taking the bronze at 3rd place. It’s challenging to describe in detail all the epicness that went down throughout the weekend so luckily we have the benefit of these epic photos below courtesy of Skatepark of Tampa .

The Boardr was there and did a great job hosting the event as well as Grind for Life. Thanks to everybody that made this happen and everybody that showed up!

Before the Grand Opening of the Zephyrhills Skate Park tomorrow, we thought we would tempt anyone that’s attending by giving a little Quality Control teaser. Every skate park we build goes through a stringent quality control process during construction by the Team Pain crew to ensure every inch of the park is up to the quality standards inherent of a custom designed and built skate park. This park may not be large but it packs a punch and is a super fun place to skate! Check out these shots and go skate!!Florida, quality control, skate park, skateboarding, Tampa, team. pain, Zephyrhills
