    3) Josh Hill
    4) John Akerman
    5) Erick Christensen
    6) Brad Domke
    7) Bill Baxter
    8) Stephen Bradford

    15) Austin Keen 2010 Florida Pro Champion

    Alternates:
    Jame Lovett
    Alex Chapin
    Dan Mc Donnell
    Trevor Stanaland

    The entry fee for this event is a total of $200.00 (Includes Fl Pro/Am entry), this event should be at least a $300.00 event with the locations being so legendary and private, (but I'm maintaining the original $200.00 entry fee from 2000 for one more year).
    Download a Fl Pro/Am entry and write Crossover at the top. We will have your S.P.o.T. and Lagoon waivers at time of event.

    August 17th.The skate event at S.P.o.T. is ran just as they run the Tampa Pro and Damn Am events. It is open to the public so anyone can come watch and show support. Be at the park no later then 11:00am for free warm-up.

    August 18th.The Lagoon event is a private event with only admittance being the 15 skimmiers and my support staff. Friends and family will not be allowed to watch. Downtown Disney is just accross the street from Typhoon Lagoon so they can hangout there until the event is over. Be at the park no later then 6:00pm.

    For those of you that have never competed in this event, I urge you to contact the ones that have. This event is five days of hot summer weather traveling across Florida competing in three legendary events. You will have the BEST time(ask Domke), but it's is a physically and mentally challenging week so be prepared

    Feel free to contact me with any questions that may arrise..904-540-1189 or rundropslide@msn.com

    They hold more than just those events actually. Like the schools out and back to school comps.

    Have you ever heard the saying "When in Rome do as the Romans do".

    Well...."When in Disney you do what the Mouse says"

    We always film both events and show a mini movie Saturday night during the Fl Pro/am so everyone can watch what went down.

    To everyone.....Each year we do the Florida Crossover Tour there seems to be some confusion. These 2 additional events, S.P.o.T. and Typhoon Lagoon are by invite only, they are scored seperately and awarded seperately The Florida Skimboarding Pro/Am (Florida Pro/Am) in an open event like all othe UST events. 11 amateur divisions plus UST PRO div and Women's PRO div.

    So get your entry forms and get them in. Last year 17+ entries were turned into me as I showed up for the rider check-in, that will not be allowed anymore. It took the better part of Saturday to re-write the heat cards considering their were over 40 entries in that division.
