Ryan Sheckler x S’Klallam Tribe

14 April 2014, 14.27 | Posted in Skate Parks, Skateboarding | No comments »

This is a small story in the grand scheme of things but we can’t help being impressed by the fact that Ryan Sheckler took the time (and money) to help out the tiny S’Klallam tribe in Washington State with a new skatepark. Like most native communities in North America, the S’Klallam tribe have had it rough and its rad that Shecks would go to such a micro level to help. Peep the video to get the story and hit the jump for more images.

It’s a sad day in Amsterdam as the city council has closed down the city’s only indoor skatepark, a move that seems absolutely crazy in a city so progressive. Luckily our man Roy van Kempen of Orange Juice was able to muscle his way in for one last session. AMS RIP.

Whether it’s Love Park, the Brooklyn Banks, or South Bank, its seems that the world’s raddest urban skate oases are constantly under attack by the powers of “progress.” The ultimate irony is that the loss of these places leads to the devolution of a city and the decline of creative urban culture. Please check out this insightful interview with Henry Edwards-Wood who is leading the charge to save South Bank. Go here to get involved. Via Andrew Guan.

dose | Lil Wayne, P-Rod and Theotis Beasley in New Orleans

28 September 2012, 16.20 | Posted in interviews, Music, Skate Parks, Skateboarding | 1 comment »

Lil Wayne and Mtn Dew opened the DeWeezy aka Trukstop skate park at the Lower 9th Ward Village Community Center this Wednesday with an opening ceremony that included appearances from the Birdman and Juvenile and an epic skate session with Paul Rodriguez, Theotis Beasley, Keelan Dadd, Justin Schulte, Cody Davis, Boo Johnson and Carlos Zarazua. The facility, which was created from recycled materials and features the largest solar powered array in the Gulf, is a bright spot in a neighborhood that still hasn’t fully recovered from Hurricane Katrina. In fact, there are numerous abandoned buildings on the same block as the park. Despite all the skepticism of Wayne’s involvement in skateboarding, it seems clear from this interview with Tim Brodhagen and the fact that he charged the park for almost two hours that he is committed from the heart. You be the judge.
