Innoskate at Polk Museum in Lakeland for Go Skateboarding Day


It was a beautiful day to be both a skate rat and skate nerd today in the City of Lakeland for Go Skateboarding Day. The Smithsonian, Polk Museum of Art, and IASC teamed up for the Innoskate program and taught us all new things, regardless of your new or seasoned veteran status as a lifelong skateboarder. I've got my story in photos below as usual along with HiDefJoe's edit of a new episode of On The Boardr.

Lakeland Skatepark Innoskate 2014 Planning


The Boardr crew was recently in Lakeland for a meeting with city officials and representatives from the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. to discuss an event involving the Lakeland Skatepark and the Polk Museum of Art. Innoskate 2013 was an event at the Smithsonian that brought a lot of attention to skateboarding, its influence on culture, and its amazing evolution over the last several decades.

Team Pain and the Lakeland locals that helped design it did a great job with this Park. What's wrong with Tampa and why don't we have something like this already? It's because something got old and forgotten about, then suddenly ended up being a roadblock to progression. I hope our city can work through that mess and get us out of 1970's skateboarding soon.

What is a Skateboarder? Rodney Mullen, Tech Industry, and Innoskate


This one hit fairly close to home for me. I've been both a computer and skateboard nerd my whole life. Recently, Rodney Mullen has immersed himself in the world of Linux, a computer operating system made by this dude Linus who I would imagine now can kickflip like everyone else. Anyway, Rodney was recently written about in this Wired article where he goes on about the similarities between banging your head on a computer keyboard like I do all day and perfecting skateboarding stunts.
