Minneapolis as the 'City of Skate'?

Stumbled upon this great article today at about Minneapolis taking steps to not just build a great skatepark, but to change the future of skateparks.  Sounds like they are on the right path...maybe soon it will be time to pack up and move to the "City of Skate".

Minneapolis taking first steps into the future of skateboard parks

Over the last 50 years, skateboarding has gotten a bad rep. I can easily conjure the cliché: grumpy building managers or weary parking-lot attendants shaking their fists at hoodie-wearing teenagers on skateboards disappearing into the alley, the eternal struggle for vacant space.

Tommy Guerrero Still Skateboarding

It's been awhile since I've seen a video part for Tommy Guerrero.  So awesome to see him and hear "Future Primitive" in the background again!  Those old 80s Powell-Peralta Skate videos will forever be a part of me, of my childhood.  Thanks Tommy G!

In & Out of Love - A Skateboard Documentary

You know that the east coast was a breeding ground to some of the most influential street skaters to this day. From Stevie Williams to Ricky Oyola, Philadelphia was home to a movement in the world of skateboarding that changed street skating into what we know it as today.

Two New England skaters that grew up fantasizing about one day taking a trip to the iconic love park and FDR park got there chance of a life time and documented it along the way.

This skateboarding film is just beautiful to watch. It's put together well with original music and great skateboarding. Check it out!
