Although this is the third contest of the season for the Collegiate Skate Tour, we were stoked to be participating for the first time. We donated a few of our products as prizes for the competitors, and it seems to have been a great turnout.
The event was held at the Possum Creek Skate park in Gainsville, and students came out from colleges and universities from all across the state. Non-student rippers are also allowed to enter into the competition (under a different division), and many came out and showed everyone what they had to offer.
Here’s who ended up on top:
1. Haze Miller – student at Pasco-Hernando State College
2. Jordi Zapata – student at University of Florida
3. Marlee Miller – student at University of South Florida
1. John Belote – Gainesville, FL
2. Tommy Walsh – Gainesville, FL
3. Landy Collada – Miami, FL
