One more from Chico, Monk’s name untouched and perfectly placed. This would be a quick sentence but this morning was out of the ordinary. I was taking my camera out and one of the skatepark kids had me almost in tears. He looked at me and asked me about my camera, which I just took as something any kid might ask. He then told me that he used to have two cameras until his home burned down in the Paradise fire #campfire. I told him I was so sorry and he looked at me, not more than 8 years old, and says hey life isn’t fair sometimes, but things will work out. Can you imagine being that young, losing every toy and thing you own, displaced, and then being so positive about it? That’s where the photo and story come together. Without @grindlineskateparks and Mark Hubbard this park would have never been improved how it was and well that would have never allowed these two boys to forget their home burnt to the ground and find happiness in skating at the Chico park.  #markhubbard #grindlineskateparks #monk #skateboard #skatepark #skateboard #skate #skateboarding #sk #design #longboard #art #skatelife #instagood #bmx #rap #photography #hiphop #tattoo #instagram #supreme #surf #urbanwear #urbanclothing #drawing #skater #streetclothing #trap #instachile #streetwear

A piece of San Clemente history turning to rubble. I along with probably anyone who ever has played music in SC at one point or another has played at these jam rooms. The Radness of this small town is slowly dissipating. #sanclemente
