By now you outta know who won what by following our Twitter which was conveniently streaming on our homepage. Paul Rodriguez was this year’s champ and it’s his first time winning Tampa Pro. Nyjah Huston came in a close second as he and P-Rod both had flawless runs. Rookie pro and pride of Canada, Keegan Sauder came in third. The video footage will be up momentarily. In the meantime feast your eyes on these pics.
