Oakland Skatepark

Fresh 'crete has been poured in the East Bay. If you've got the guts, venture into East Oakland and enjoy the new street plaza at the Youth Uprising center. A few Street Corner heads rolled through yesterday for a test drive.

There's a new park in East Oakland.  Although it's on the youth center premises, the neighborhood that surrounds it is a little...rough.  Not for the faint of heart

Jaky is the manager behind the movement. The official inauguration is yet to be announced

Inside we found Corey, Cairo, Cody McEntire, Russ Milligan, Adrian Williams, Jeremy Reeves, Lee Yankou, and Danny Fuenzalida

Cover boy Jeremy Leabres front blunts through the kink and slides through a 16-page jaw dropper of an interview. Ben Raemers backs it up with a 12-page interview which leaves no doubt that he's one of our country's most valuable imports. GX1000 scrubs away at London; Volcom crushes some cobblestone in Portugal and Vans sends some notes from their video base camp. Fall may be coming but this issue is gonna lift your spirits, kid.Add this one to your collection.
