innoskate_poster_BANNER_versionThere is a really great event happening at MOHAI this Saturday that will show how skateboarding and innovation have always been intertwined. There are some really cool topics for discussion and many reflections of the rich skateboarding culture that’s been thriving in the Northwest since skateboarding’s invention. Personally I am excited about the history of skateboarding trick demo with Peha, Kristin,  Ryan, and Metal Mark at 2:30pm! Check out the full schedule here. See you there.

Well what do you know…

What will certainly be the last levy-funded skatepark for some time, now that Seattle has opted for a Parks District approach to funding, Hubbard Homestead is finally underway almost 9 years after we had the first meeting about it. I’m not going to go into the whole story right now, because it almost doesn’t matter. New Line/Vanderzalm is supervising and Sahli is building what may be the last full blown-skatespot to be built in Seattle for a while. Completion date is in October, so hang tight.

If you need a refresh on the design, you can pull it up here.
