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

Skater of the Year 2014, Wes Kremer, floats onto the April cover with a sculptural Ollie to fakie and the party continues inside as Wes and his best hemmies go loco in Gran Canaria. The yearly T-Eddys continue to shine and shun; Bones penetrates the language barrier in Poland; The Midwest gets tested by Birdhouse and a Skate Loteria photo feature helps you brush up on your Español. Muy bueno.
