    Love Skating

Now a national leader in recreation for youth and skatepark design I have become somewhat of a role model when it comes to recruiting companies to fulfill corporate social responsibilities and fundraising for skateparks throughout the United States.
Often my best strategy in building community relationships has begun with the local small businesses. Small businesses in local areas see the value in reinvesting in their communities. As I have mentioned in previous blogs when creating a skate park in a location I will do my very best to only use local concrete and construction to accomplish the projects. I find myself often reaching out to these trade men for their help not only in accomplish the task financially to build the skate parks but also to fulfill delivery as well.
When I get that kind of buying from a construction company or a local business I know we will get the highest quality of service, construction, and tradesman craftsmanship. Recently while recruiting a group of tradesmen I had the pleasure of meeting a local businessman from Davenport Illinois. Jason was the owner of Davenport’s Best Heating and Air and was very open to working with us financially and throughout the labor of the project. Although Jason was a heating and air conditioning specialist he had several skill sets, other than furnace repair, that he brought to bear for this very unique project. It was my great pleasure to see how the community interacted not only with just Jason and Davenport’s best Heating and Air their staff but also all the other local businessmen that contributed to the success of this goal. The versatility of the Tradesmen that were involved in this project was quite impressive. Although most of them had very niche markets that they were responsible for fulfilling. Most of them were very skilled straight men that had capabilities well beyond just the one trade they advertised for.

Throughout my years of skateboarding I have had the opportunity to speak with many Along with that privilege mini skateboard park projects with some of the top-seeded and rank skateboard champions in the world. With that I have had the ideas and collaboration of experienced skateboard artist and athletes.  This collaboration has evolved through the years and turned into friendships and business partnerships working with some of the top skateboarders in the world has allowed me the opportunity to create some of the best skate parks that are skateboard friendly.

I have had the opportunity to travel and work all over the world creating skate parks for municipalities and countries. I have had the opportunity to travel all around the world and work in countries like Dubai creating skate parks for their youth. As well as creating skate parks for the very poor in cities like Chicago and other places in New Jersey. It is fun to inspire others through athleticism. I have found that by creating quality skate have found that by creating quality skate park see it allows for kids to have healthy after hours activities to do.

Typically before I design a skate park I like to engage Also we’d like to use teach you some of the skills that we have in creating skateboard Aura skate park designs that we have inspired other small companies to pick up where we left off and create small companies around a very Niche product like skate park design.  One of the things that we have found is that by offering knowledge we have helped small businessman start totally new divisions within their business inspiring small business man to grow additional parts of their business and create a more healthy local economy was a very happy outcome but one that was not initially envisioned. By using the local labor and getting the local Buy in from everyone we find that the success of these skate parks and how the operate long term has much to do with how they start out. The local skate park has become in many communities a local parade round slash meeting spot. These community spaces are very important to the health and wellbeing of our communities. By creating a spot that everyone can agree on or at least the majority can, you are literally treating common how the operate long term has much to do with how they start out.

These community spaces our very important to the health and wellbeing of our communities. By creating a spot that everyone can agree on or at least the majority can, you are literally treating common ground. The success of the state parks goes much further than the concrete that we poor but the concrete relationships that we’ve been able to build and restore within our communities. This will be a mission that I intend to do. For the rest of my life the inspiration that the young people leave me with is the best paycheck I could ever received.

Not MeIf I retreated back into the memories that have been some of my very favorite ones, I would have to think about the very first time that I got my very first skateboard. It’s funny to imagine that I was able to find a skateboard at the age of 10 at a Woolworths. I’m not even sure if they’re in existence anymore. Fact I’m pretty sure that they’re not. But I remember walking into this one that was attached to one of the malls way back in the eighties and seeing this bright orange and black skateboard that said executioner and it had an awesome dragon on it with a couple of really cool battle axes.

I remember thinking to myself this is it I finally arrived I have now hit the Pinnacle of popularity. Soon after I got my skateboard I went into the parking lot there was covered in gravel and then began to imagine that I was the most awesome skater that ever lived. Prior to even knowing you Tony Hawk was I believe that was him.

I found every possible Block in the asphalt parking lot and skated for a whopping two and a half feet before it came to a screeching halt and threw me off my skateboard. Soon I recognized the need for change. That being that I needed to find somewhere with a lot of smooth concrete to quickly be able to learn any kind of tricks or have any kind of success. It wasn’t long until I finally found my very first smooth piece of concrete and begin to swivel back and forth moving myself on the concrete like a fish through water wagging his tail propelling myself forward with each stride.

I quickly took to the skateboard and realize that this could be viable transportation for my early youth. ExecutionierThe combination of Back to the Future in the hoverboard was the final nail in the coffin for me. I was absolutely in love with skateboarding and the future of what I knew was just 2 weeks around the corner the hoverboard. Unfortunately 20 some years later I’m still waiting for my hoverboard and I believe that I’m going to have to hold my breath a bit longer. When it comes to skateboarding it’s an absolute passion that is stretched for many years in my own personal life.

Taking the time to read, watch sporting events, and actually get outside and try to do some of these trips has helped me physically emotionally and mentally grow. One of the things that I enjoy most about my experience in skateboarding and learning new tricks was the passion that I gained for creating the perfect environment around myself so I can have maximum success. Golden skate parks throughout the country has been a passion of mine that has fueled several other young people’s passion for skating as well.

I believe that had I not had some of the experiences that I did at a young age that I could have been an at-risk youth. Skateboarding to me was a good outlet that helped me Focus energy that I had on something that was a positive outlook. Today my passion is sharing that with other youths around the nation. Creating an ideal environment that is not only safe but offers the opportunity to have success in skating has been something if I were truly dick back into the memories that have been some of my very favorite ones, I would have to think about the dirty first time that I got my.
