From Team Rider Dave Campbell:
“Skateboarding! Turning lives around since 1964….”
I gave Sam a couple stickers a couple weeks ago. I don’t know him very well, but when he showed me this I told him that between his old felony conviction and new facial tat, it looked like he really didn’t care about ever having a job. Without a pause his reply was ” I have a job- skating pools”
I had a mohawk from ’81-’83 but I was never really punk rock. I realize that now.

We had a group of kids in from Astor School in Portland as part of an after school program. I think there was only one kid who didn’t skate so most of them seemed to have a good time. Thanks for coming by!

Elias Parise made a video about some indoor spots in Portland. It features our own Marek Litinski at home as well as our friends at Unheard.
If you’ve been skating transition in the Portland Area for the last decade you’ve surely seen Shawn Reinert flying through the air and getting heckled for being a snowboarder, and we don’t care. And the fact that he’s riding an old model doesn’t mean anything! Welcome Shawn! – Dos Bowl photo by Dave Skidmore.
