Legacy. How does one leave such a thing? Perhaps it lies in the knowledge that they didn’t know in the first place. We take it to the end, where it begins. The dictionary defines a legacy as anything handed down from the past, as from an ancestor or predecessor. A treasured thing.
Skateboarding. We have our legends and they leave us a legacy. Style, progression and influence are all examples of this gift. At its inception, skateboarding was something that surfers did to imitate surfing and have fun. It wasn’t really anything until it became the exact opposite. For some people, skateboarding was everything in the world.
These people went on to push the boundaries of technology and progression. They created a future for all of us. We saw what they did and wanted to be right there alongside them. The Skateboarding Hall of Fame inducted this years selection on Thursday evening. It was a fantastic gathering of skateboarding legends and key people. Laura Thornhill, Christian Hosoi, Rodney Mullen and Warren Bolster R.I.P were just a few inducted. Legacy. A brilliant evening of honoring our greats. Thank you to Lucia Griggi for the images.
