Took a quick trip out to Florida a few weeks back to compete at the North American Grappling Association(NAGA) U.S. Open. While there I got the opportunity to meet all the hard working folks at Profile Racing, its absolutely amazing to see how much work these guys get done at such a high level with the number of staff they have, I’m honored to be apart of this family. After a full day at the Profile HQ me and Matt hit up the Skatepark of Tamp, the Bro Bowl,a few other random jibs while cruising and then finished the day at Taco Bus. I only got a taste of what Tampa had to offer with riding, cant wait to make another trip out and spend a few solid days there. Took off early the next morning for the event. While I was there I randomly met this dude Clay Perry who happened to know who I was based on my BMX history, I am always stoked to meet a fellow rider/grappler who shares the same passions as me. I ended up taking first in the event and I credit that to all the domestic/feral cat talk and vegan breakfast, thanks to Matt and Ariel. Celebrated my win by spending the next day a Walt Disney World, great trip but still didn’t see an alligators..
