spotWhen I read this shit today, I thought to myself, “I’m gonna chill on this for a bit, I’m sure Rob is up to some joke.” And at the time I hadn’t even realized it was April Fools!

Skatepark of Tampa Bankrupt, RIP, 1993 – 2009

Everything’s easier seen in hindsight. Maybe we should have put ads on the site to take advantage of all this traffic? Maybe we should not have had so many free days? Maybe we should not have changed the course so much. Maybe we should have not kept our admission prices the same since 1993 when we opened despite changing the course every single year since then? Active couldn’t make it through the Great Recession and neither could that one skate park a few miles from us on State Road 688. With all those horrible business decisions, what makes you think we would survive? Skatepark of Tampa has filed for bankruptcy.

Pretty damn good joke. And according to that snap shot of his inbox, many ya’ll industry peeps fell for it. Cheeky, cheeky, rad.

Looks like it’s  “93 till infinity …” for SPOT. As it should be … word.
