This was our summer of skate…

We rolled into the park back in May and couldn’t have predicted where our board would take us and the people we would meet. From the urban skaters up at sunrise to get the first roll in the bowl, to the enthusiastic fearful beginners taking pleasure in their progression. We met pro-skaters and skate park employees who both call skating their jobs. We listened to passionate people tell us tales of fighting for the skate park in their local area or those who are fighting now to keep them there. We visited DIY mini ramps built in back gardens, rooftops and basements and then adventured to skateparks on our doorstep, outside the city and far far away. We saw and heard how skate inspired, controlled and brightened people’s lives. Making friends at the park and making friends with our board, this was our summer of skate and here’s a snapshot of it…
