This was the first video i posted on instagram: my last ride on my first skateboard, just before donating it to the smithsonian. i kept expecting a bearing to explode, but please don't tell the museum.
That day @rileyhawk & i set out to create the center for children who can't read good and wanna learn to do other stuff good too (as seen in the newest @gqstyle). special thanks to @sarahhallprinc for the opportunity.
I helped design this new skatepark in downtown detroit, but it is not a @tonyhawkfoundation project. the credit goes to @mcginnessworks@bedrockdetroit & @modernskate for providing the idea, space & construction. i think it's a great use of the area and i hope it finds a permanent home in the near future. opening next week! free to the public. special thanks to @alec_beck for helping me with the layout.
