Don't Fix it if it Ain't Broke

To Whom it May Concern,

Livingston Skatepark is the Stonehenge of stoke. Conceived and executed by Ian Urquhart before he died, it's stood the test of skateboard time. I myself have slept in the bushes there and had the time of my life. Let skaters build skateparks and everything is kosher. When councils and fat contractors see money, they could care less about making something epic for kids to ride. Livingston is forever. You goon that and there'll be hell to pay. Red tape, cops, and shoddy construction just makes aimless kids—who already have nothing—get mad and start busting things. Livingston is one of a kind. Don't fix it if it ain't broke. —Jake Phelps

Friends for life, Div and Stu Graham grew up at this park, and to deny them an eternity here is a travesty of skate justice. Photo: Burnett

Sascha Daley scores the August front with a high-altitude kickflip into an ancient bank—more Daley heat inside with his Heads interview. Chris Gregson gets the Heads treatment as well and Nick Boserio and Ron Deily get fully grilled. Loud headphones coasts through Costa Rica; the FA Sk8 Fucks jump in the tour bus with Earl Sweatshirt; Cons streetstyles through the South and Lakai goes bananas in Puerto Rico. Done deal, dude.
