Profile Racing‘s Neighborhood Crawl series continues! This time around we get a mix of park, street and backyard ramp footage from the Profile squad out cruising in Tampa, Florida! This video has a super good mix of riding and styles, along with plenty of great spots. Hit play and take this all in!
“In January of 2020, I brought part of our crew back down to Tampa for the third Profile Neighborhood Crawl. Over the past year, my hometown has seen a DIY renaissance with a cache of freshly built backyard set-ups and do-it-yourself street spots, all within the backdrop of our communities having stepped up to advocate for a plethora of new public skateparks. This muli-media feature is a celebration of where Tampa Bay has come from, it’s roots in both punk and bmx, and to what it has become.” – Matt Coplon
“Filmed by our whole crew as well as Jona Jachan.
Riding by Cory Foust, Chris Childs, Bobby Proctor, Lucas Porzio, Alex Tate, Dylan Kakowski, Mark Mulville, and Chad Degroot.
