Jamie Foy Wins The Boardr Am at Tampa Bay

Marcos Montoya had the Qualifiers and Semi-Finals on lock, but when the format switched to Runs for the Finals, it was Jamie Foy who ended up putting the best line of tricks together. Jamie will join Jon Cos and Jagger Eaton at The Boardr Am Series Finals at X Games in Austin. Congrats Baby Body! We'll have a recap on XGames.com and here on TheBoardr soon. Thanks to everyone who was here today.

There's a new photographer that just moved to Tampa. Chaz, aka GonzTheDog, snaps some eye pleasing ones for sure. He was here the other night along with a crew of locals testing out the new adidas BOOST the Bar obstacle that's coming on the road with us all year long at adidas Skate Copa events. Check out his skate photos (plus some construction ones Bob and I threw in) and HiDefJoe's video recap.

Tank Tops in The Boardr Store

Not everyone can get away with a tank top while skating, but everyone can get away with a tank top while in the chill out tent.




Tim O'Connor Chats with You at The Boardr Am at Houston

I wish we could show you the full uncensored version, but we had to scale it back to plain old PG-13. Thanks to everyone that stopped to have a chat with Tim about everything from this super fun skateboard shindig to who is looking for a girlfriend on Valentine's Day.

Grind for Life Series Contest in Lakeland, Florida This Weekend

Last year on March 1 was GFL Lakeland, which is coming up again this weekend. That one we did last year was the first organized event we did as our new team at The Boardr, and HiDefJoe's first day on the job. I can't believe the truckload of stuff that's gone down in the one year since then, with much more to come. For this year, we'd like to welcome adidas as presenting sponsor for the entire GFL series. Register here for this all skills/ages bowl and street contest benefiting Grind for Life. This here is Alex Peavey last year on a frontside big heel. See you in Lakeland!?

The Road to Houston in The Boardr Bus

We've got a nice mix of nerds, media types, microphone personality, shredders, bid'niss dudes, and workhorses. One thing we all have in common: we're all skateboarders. And now after Jorge played it, we all have hate for this Beck dude in common. Whatever Beck is, he/she/it sucks. Anyway, it's been a damn good time. Along the way, we hit some tiny towns, large towns, and medium towns. I've got a few photos from our adventure to Houston. We're here for the second stop of The Boardr Am. Check out the list of who is skating in the Qualifiers here.
