We attended the 9th Annual Skateboarding Hall of Fame last night and fanned out on four decades of greatness from Jeff Ho to Hensley, and Mariano. This is the second year the event has been open to the public and if you haven’t been yet, we highly recommend it. It’s a special feeling to share the passion and comradery for skateboarding among multiple generations of skaters all under one roof. Proceeds from the night benefit the not-for-profit efforts of the Skateboarding Hall of Fame and the Go Skateboarding Foundation.

Congratulations to the 2018 inductees!
