Tampa Pro 2006 Report 1

Friday the Team Manager/industry VIP contest took place. Local ex-New Deal pro and current Westside Skateshop owner John Montessi took top honors. Dude doesn’t look like he’s lost a step. Justin Williams cruised into second with his casual gnar. Mike Sinclair, Bill Weiss, and Ryan Clements rounded out the rest of the top 5.

The pros started in with their qualifying heats on Saturday. Competition was fierce and the skatepark felt like an oven--humidity is no joke. Front runners at this point look like Billy Marks, Ryan Sheckler, Greg Lutzka, and Austen Seaholm as all of them had flawless runs full of insane tricks.

The top 5 qualifiers for tomorrow are Billy Marks, Greg Lutzka, Ryan Sheckler, Austen Seaholm, and Jerem Rogers, in that order.
