20th Annual Tampa AM 2013 Neckface Poster

Every year, the best ams from around the world travel to Tampa, FL to compete in skateboarding’s most respected amateur competition. These are the hungriest, gnarliest, most talented up-and-comers in skateboarding, throwing down as hard as they can for the top spot. The winners of Tampa Am go on to enjoy a huge boost of sponsorship opportunity and often become the next generation of world class pros.

The 20th Annual Tampa Am of 2013 is happening right now. The first heats of the street qualifiers are today (list of skaters) and will continue Saturday. The top 16 from each day make the cut to skate in the finals on Sunday.

You can tune in and watch a live broadcast starting at 2pm EST on Saturday the 7th (street qualifiers) and 11am EST on Sunday the 8th (semi-finals & finals) at SkateparkOfTampa.com.

We’ve provided the details of the event below, along with highlights from last year. GO SKATE!
