Recap: 3rd Annual Tampa Bro Presented by Bro Style

Posted by Rob Meronek on Wednesday, March 18, 2015

The day before everyone's in town for Tampa Pro, we have all our friends over for an annual session in the Dream Driveway, Ryan Clements' home that he's slowly adding concrete skateboarding goodness to. Check out the recap from a fun afternoon of skateboarding, fishing, and chilling here. Thanks Bro Style and Leo Romero for stepping in and making it that much more fun this year. Now we're ready to watch some ripping skating at Tampa Pro. FYI, Shane's winning it and Felipe is going to Street League. Did I say that already? Yeah, I'll say it again and again.

Do you know anyone who has a private party at their house so legit it's sponsored by Bro Style? And there's a silly pros vs bros casual contest? And Leo Romero shows up in town with this insane trophy for it? And Red Bull has a ripping metal band playing? And Porpe's Latin grillsmithing keeps you fed? And PBR keeps you unthirsty? Yep, we do, and if you're friends with us (and Clements), you know, too. Sorry we can't invite everyone since it's at Ryan's house. Thanks for checking out the photos and video coverage and thanks Leo for trucking this insane trophy across the country.
