While most of the world is frozen and forced indoors, the guys in Tampa take advantage of the best weather of the year for them, enjoying all of the street that they can before the torturous summer heat creeps in. In this TBR mix we get a handful of visitors and plenty of the normal Tampa Bay staples. It’s great to see that banger go down, as Lucas has had his eye on that for at least 2 years, if not more.
Tyler Gilliard turned 24 a few weeks back, and to celebrate he got a bunch of flatland riders together for a jam. The turn out was great, with riders of all ages and experience levels showing up, including his Profile team mate Chad Degroot. TBR has a handful of photos from the event up now. If you want more, you can see the over flow shots here.
Tampa Bay Riders just posted an interview with Steve Caro, where he explains what efforts he has gone through to find the right place to manufacture his next concepts for his shoe company, SCG. SCG was a thing back years ago before the days of Lotek, Orchid and Inopia (which is also rumored to be making a comeback as well), but never seemed to gain much traction in the market. It sounds like he’s ready to do it up right this go-round, so I’m interested to see what is to come!
David Gibson is a Tampa local that I’ve gotten to see progress very rapidly over the past year or so. Considering that he has a good bit of footage in every TBR edit, it’s impressive that he had this many more clips done at the same time.
Tampa Bay Riders is back, this time with an all park mix from the Summer. That might be confusing to some of you; why would guys be in the parks so much during the Summer? The reason is because Florida summers are so brutally hot, that riding outside during the day is pretty terrible for a few months. This one has a few cameos from some recognizable names like Ricky Moseley, Mark Mulville and of course Matt Coplon, along with a ton of locals, including yours truly at the end.
Matt Coplon’s TBR series is back with footage from one of the newest backyard set ups to be constructed in Tampa, the Bane Ramp Compound. It features riding from Chad Degroot, Mark Mulville, Jared Eberwein, Scott Bane, Niles Harper, Sean Albright, David Gibson, and Matt Coplon himself. Anybody else really want to learn the double bonk move at 1:50?
