Florida sucks and you know it.

YEAH, THAT'S RIGHT, another Florida article--seems like a lot of skate trips have been hitting it up as of late. The Tampa Pro and Am contest brings a lot of skaters to the Dead End state. This isn't going to be an article that starts off with "I woke up at 6:00am and drove to the airport, my flight sucked Blah, blah, blah." You know how the rest goes; you've read them before. Everybody goes through the same shit when traveling, no need to keep bringing it up. It's not about how you got to the airport, the shitty food you ate, and how much of a bitch you are to travel with! Yes, I was only kidding about the whole Florida Sucks thing. I really don't want to go there next year and get a beat down from my friends' wives who grew up there. Florida is a great time, lots of different places to skate like concrete skate parks, backyard pools, and of course street stuff. Oh yeah, and the titty bars rule too! Skateboarders there love to drink beer and the southern hospitality is in full effect. If you think it sucks, you're hanging with the wrong people and in the wrong places! Just look at the skate talent that's come out of Florida over the years. There's something in the water for sure.
