You already know what to expect each year from Independent Best Trick at Tampa Am. Or do you!?

Bruno Senra’s ghetto bird over the 16 foot gap clinched it, but that’s only part of the story. Here’s the rest.
Daisuke Ikeda blew the SPoT roof off with a brain-scorching run that earned a 92 and took home the win for Japan at the 25th Annual Tampa Am. Congrats Daisuke!

With 100 of the best amateur skaters from around the world trying to out shred each other in the Tampa Am Qualifier, you know Giovanni Vianna had to bring some serious fire to snag the top spot. But there’s way more to Tampa Am than where people place, and here’s a ripping taste of it.
If the Friday Open Qualifier at Tampa Am was a kitchen appliance, it would be a meat grinder. 161 skaters from around the globe took their best shot at making a 10 cut to the next round, and yeah that’s pretty much as harsh as it can get.
Skateboarding doesn’t have too many “traditions,” but after 25 years Tampa Am is probably its most famous one. And so it begins. Happy Anniversary Tampa Am!
