disclaimer: the journalist who wrote the article is truly passionate about his craft, and put in extra efforts to present accurate information. we talked for quite a while, and he had far too much information to fit in a small space. it also isn’t easy for a non-skater to write about skateboarding, and to do so in a way that non-skaters can understand it. it’s just too much of it’s own world. as a result, some of the vocabulary and quotes aren’t exactly accurate, for example referring to a skate spot as a skatepark; “breaking the law and skating” wasn’t an exact quote. in the end, my overall feelings were pretty accurately portrayed, and i am excited for the message to reach the new york times audience.
