I met skateboarder Mark Jones at Rip City Skates. It is important that we have a sense of gratitude to the first generation skateboarders who were instrumental in creating the sport and lifestyle we all love.  In this photo of Mark you can see him launching high off a ramp before there were skateparks. Remember the history, respect the culture and promote the lifestyle!
