"Skateboarding alters your perceptions of urban space forever. Bland 1960s architectural eyesores become a creative challenge awaiting skate exploration. With the streets as your playground, loyal friendships are formed – a wolf pack of sorts – with whom you roam, hunting out new challenges and opportunities...
Why? Because, there are no short cuts in skateboarding, it’s the long hard less travelled road that leads to personal experience, creative focus, depth and inclusion. As a creative subculture, skateboarding is big business for sure; marketed and sold to the masses, but, the ability to flow confidently on a skateboard is no easy feat. There are no easy downloads or cheats into this brotherhood. To succeed at anything of worth, you need patience and dedication - skateboarding is no different.
