Hillsborough County, Fla. (March 16, 2017) - The top skateboarders in Hillsborough County will bring their best board tricks, gravity-defying leaps, and rail-grinding skills to Jackson Springs Skate Park on Saturday as they battle to be named the Best Shredder around.
Saturday's contest kicks off a three-tournament series that culminates in August with the crowning of the county's Best Shredder.
Jackson Springs Skate Park, 8620 Jackson Springs Road in Tampa, opened in 2014. The 13,000-square-foot park was designed to feature both street-style and bowl-style skating.
The Best Shredder competition features four age divisions, with prizes for first, second, and third place in each division. Top finishers at each of the three tournaments accumulate points toward the overall series results.
