The Ambleside Skatepark Project
The Ambleside skatepark in West Vancouver was built in the early 90′s and has been a big part of the Vancouver skate scene. In recent years it has begun to show it’s age and is falling out of use. Local skaters have started a fundraising effort to redesign and construct a new park in it’s place. To help with the effort Tommy Guerrero personally donated a signed REAL board and a piece of hand drawn Gonz art. Check out amblesideskatepark.com to see how you can help the park effort and get your hands on some amazing auction items.
Andy Kessler Forever
Andy Kessler was a 100% Skateboarder. A true New York visionary, he helped create the rich and diverse skate scene that is still present in NYC and pushed the development of East Coast skateboarding. This timeless photo taken by Ivory Serra captures Andy so well, full steam ahead, risk be damned
. It’s been 5 years since his passing and not a day goes by that we don’t think of you Andy, Rest In Peace.
