Skateboarding. From parks, to street spots, schools and everything in between, skateboarding is a way of life, a way for different individuals to express themselves through unique styles, techniques, attitudes and more. Now a worldwide phenomenon on a steady growth path, it’s no secret certain spots and influences alter a skater’s perception of how they want to be perceived.
