  • Steve Caballero Portrait"There were no limits to what you could progress in skateboarding because it's such a creative sport. That's the thing that separates skateboarding from a lot of other sports. It's an artistic sport that applies itself to its surroundings."

  • Tom Groholski portrait"Skating with Jeff Phillips was very high on the "Pros" side of my re-location pros/cons list. He was always stoked to get away from his skatepark and get some backyard crete flow. I'll always love that about him."

  • Tony Hawk Swifter, Higher, Stronger: There is a movement to include skateboarding in the Olympics. At this point, I think the Olympics needs skateboarding much more than skateboarding needs the Olympics.

  • Jeff-Grosso-150x150At Vans, Vert was never dead: Van Doren woke up one day and thought: The park turned 10 years old. Hey, I want to re-do the pool. And we said Good, because we turned a bid in for it 2 years ago. So it was really Van Doren's idea. He's the one who paid for it, He's the one who got it done. He's the one who said GO!

  • Lizzie-Armanto-Profile-150x150When I first started skating I wanted to be a good skater. I just did not want to be a good “skater girl”, (Take gender out of the statement) otherwise I would have settled that issue a long time ago. I know that mindset helped me get to where I am.
