This was a first for Cocoa Beach Skate Park here in Florida. It took place in the bowl and flow course area and some of the top local Amateurs and Masters, including “Jimmy The Greek” and Buck Smith to name a few, competed against each other in their respected divisions to take home some cash! The $5,000 purse even enticed some out of state competitors to join the mix! There was also a live broadcast of the event on cocoabeachskatepark.com that ran live the entire time of the event. We talked with Scooter Newell, the man behind the entire event and ensured us they’re looking to make this an annual event out in Cocoa Beach! If you didn’t have a chance to go to this killer event in person, rest assured you’ll have your chance in 2016. For now, check out the photos and video recap below to find out who took home the cash and claimed the title of 2015 Cocoa Beach Open winner!
