Tampa, FL 2014 – Cold weather, wind and clear skies gave way to the appropriately names Harvest Jam, the Skatepark of Tampa’s annual who’s who contest for Florida skateboarding. Mr. Schaefer and his crew put this event TOGETHER. Nice job! It’s always a great experience when the day goes off without a hitch. The newer photographer DrBlowTorch is a bomb of a photographer and as always we met some really great people in the skateboarding business like newly created Oh Cake Skateboard Co, who promises some new technologies in skateboarding.
As the day unfolded so did the Sponsored Finals and last year’s champ was back to defend what he earned last year. A now older, and wiser Zion took to the beautiful new course and carved out a picturesque run using every piece of the course. He tossed when others turned and vise versa. It was like he planned his near perfect execution with ease.
An older, not nagging leg injury (obviously) didn’t stop Zion Wright’s top performance which could land him in one of the top slots at the upcoming 2014 Tampa AM in December at Skate Park of Tampa. The swinging antics of Mr. Wright included a charismatic display of unorthodox tricks that keep even most of his comrades in “Awe”. So its easy to say he is a crown favorite for a lot of skaters, andÂ a polite kid. Sponsors listen up, Zion could be your man! he’s a pretty cool kid.
That’s not to say the other kids aren’t cool. Most everyone of them has a unique personality which makes skateboarding a very interesting lifestyle. When you dress up in a suit and tie every day for the rest of your life, you realize these “kids” are pretty cool. Zy came out swinging two years in a row to hold onto his Harvest Jam 2014 crown. Now his sights are set on Tampa AM. Last year he put on great performances at Damn AM, Tampa AM, and many others so it will be interesting to see how he does. My opinion is that he’s on fire, so competitors take notice, you’ve been warned!
