There is only one thing about skating in Tampa–if you don't have people who are constantly hyping up skating and making shit happen, you'll probably end up at the 50-cent sink or swim every night. Thanks to Steve, I'll skate all the buttery Tampa spots when I get the chance, and I can honestly say I haven't sunk in a long time. He has motivated me to skate since the first couple years I actually started skating, and he has always been down to go shark up some pool tables in his off time.–Matt Selego
