This is pretty rad. If you have ever wondered how to get something going to convince your city to build a skatepark in your city or town, this is one way to make it happen. Chase Hawk and Joe Rich recently linked up with the Project Loop crew in Texas to get some momentum going behind building a park. Check it out!
“Project LOOP (Lesson’s On and Off the Pavement) is a non-profit comprised of creative professionals that mentor youth. Kids get up close exposure and hands on experience through creative exercises in career fields of interest . You may have caught them over the years helping build and paint ramps for at Fun Fun Fun Fest, Texas Toast Jam and X-Games in Austin. The kids worked hard raising awareness and funding to build a skatepark for the youth of Taylor, Texas. They have partnered with Evergreen Skateparks to design and build the skatepark through a series of workshops. Recently, Evergreen and others amazing people visited the kids in Taylor to kick off the process.>” – < a target="_blank" href="http://www.digbmx.com">DIG
