Southside Skatepark ,

Incredibly Educational

You do not have to be a Skateborder to listen and learn!

Having been a Skateborder since 1986, filming skateboarding and documenting my friends since 1988, and now running Southside Skatepark est. 1994 since 2007 these panels discussions shed light on the changing environment of which I’ve unknowingly dedicated my life. These have shed a lot of light on a variety of individuals skateboarding experience that I could never know or understand as the skateboarding experience is so individualistic. These help me prepare myself and those that I work with to be the best we can be in preparation to host any and all types of skateboarders at our facility in Houston, Texas. I am committed and even further committed the more I learn about other’s experience to continue to attempt to make everyone feel welcome and embraced by our skateboarding scene here in Houston by providing a landing pad for travelers and new comers at Southside. Anyway, thank you guys so much for pushing our culture forward.
