All the skaters from the late 70’s / early 80’s are either turning 50 soon or have turned 50. If you really think about it – it is really amazing that these guys can skate on this level at age 50. Unreal. Super inspiring. A whole generation that was raised on concrete skateparks (like Skate City in Torrance) was super hyped when concrete parks started being built again in the early 2000’s.

” I got to visit Arto Saari’s backyard bow! l was really lucky that Arto, the legendary skater and photographer, took some these cool shots of me shredding the bowl. His bowl is so cool and Arto is the best – big thanks to Neal Mims for making these special moments happen for us kids. In the pictures I am wearing my S1 Lifer Helmet, the only helmet I trust to keep me safe! ” – Jake Golden
