If skaters ran the world the streets would be designed like skateparks and every road would be perfectly paved. Communities would gather in thousands to skate the city streets everyday. There would be no potholes, no security, and no bullshit; just skateboarding with friends and good times. No douche bag security guards to ruin our day or dumb signs warning us that skateboarding is illegal in a certain area. Cities would pop off every night with parties in the streets, punk rock and rap concerts would go for days on end and drugs would be passed around like pen and paper.
Streets full of hot, naked chicks throwing their tits in your face
If skaters ran the world the streets would run free with pride, positivity and parties. It probably wouldn’t be the most sanitary or safe place but it definitely would be lit. Streets full of hot, naked chicks throwing their tits in your face.
No more bullshit adults to hate on us for no reason. The stigma of religions would be tossed to the ground and trampled over while we parade provocative graphics of Satan and hilarious parodies of the brands we hate. Street art would flourish and we would come to see a renaissance of graffiti art combing with the true underground cultures of skateboarding and music.
national parks would be national skateparks, monuments and landmarks would be everyday skate spots, and the streets would be our home. Modern architecture would transform to incorporate structures specifically designed for skateboarding. They say the world is our playground but if skaters ran the world, the world would be our skatepark. There wouldn't be any kids on scooters getting in the way or equally as annoying parents telling us what to do. If skaters ran the world, the world would be a doper place.
we would take over the crazy night clubs in Vegas, LA and NY and there would be no last call. We would own the skyscrapers with penthouses that you only see in movies. We would work with scientists to control the weather so that whenever it rains we can turn that shit off and continue to skate. We would figure out how to time travel in to the minds of our future selves to figure out what must be done in the present…. Or maybe we will just think we can do all of that because all of the acid, mushrooms, coke, and other drugs we have done.
Already Been Done lists; many have tried, few have succeeded. And yet we decided to give it a shot cause fuck it, why not? We got the time and the technology to do it. Instead of having to remember those extensive lists of tricks done at skate spots, we built a resource that allows skaters to easily search a database of videos and trick names.
Don't let the title fool you! Shane McGrane is a beast in the streets and he's been killing it since before I was even born. We caught up with Shane to talk about his his skating career, his most recent video part, and why exactly he coined himself the "unprofessional skateboarder". Dive in for 5 minutes of ripping and an interview with the man himself.
I've been going to Montauk every summer ever since I can remember. The place is my second home. Throughout my years here I have come across a collection a worth while spots, some of which I've skated myself, some of which have never been hit. I figured it would be a good time to share it with you all.
