2018 Boards for Bros Build Day In Honor of Matt Woods

Thanks to SPoT’s friends at Vans, they had an awesome day full of building and giving the gift of skateboarding to Tampa Bay area nonprofits. SPoT kicked off their day by welcoming VIP guests from Positive Spin, Boys and Girls Club Liberty Teen Center and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Each guest got to build their own skateboard, customize the grip, get a skate lesson and a yummy lunch from The Bricks. After their distribution party, SPoT set everything up in the Courtyard for their Annual Board Build In Memory of Matt Woods. SPoT welcomed a ton of volunteers and they helped us build over 200 skateboards for upcoming holiday distributions.
