Skateboarding is a transformation of the mind. It rewrites the programing of those who embrace it and allows them to become the master of their environment around them. No longer are those stairs simply just a mound of bricks or concrete with a singular purpose but rather an open invitation to express the inner visions of your minds eye. This vision transcends the normal arena of sports where the objective is uniformly understood by all participants who are working towards the singular path to success. Skateboarding is subjective and the resulting display of art showcases individualism while simultaneously fosters personal, spiritual, and mental growth. With that in mind, welcome to the latest Weekly Wrap-up where you will find material depicting how some of our community members have expressed their inner visions atop their boards this past week. With out further adieu, lets get to it!
