I enjoyed this little reflection on what skateboarding means to Elissa Steamer and a bunch of skate rats in Florida. Watch “I was a skate rat” below.
We’ve been getting so many great submissions to our Instagram project this month. In case you missed it, it’s called “Portraits and Songs” and the instructions are simple: Share a portrait you took of someone, pair it with a song title/artist, and tag it #portraitsandsongs. I will be re-gramming submissions to @booooooom all month long!
