    YES! Not only a late start with time to skate but dry concrete and barely a cloud in the sky. Plus, the park was freshly washed from an entire week of rain, leaving it free of pebble land mines and goose turds… well, mostly. It was a surprise, too, to see that I felt fresh,…

  • Then & Now

    As I compared my classically styled & newly minted boards side by side, I realized how this time around, I am coming to skateboarding with positivity at my back, with a sense that the best of us can be found at a skatepark, a street spot or online.
