The focus is on mental health, mentors and what keeps us rolling. Interviewees range from pro-skaters to skate development workers, skate industry veterans to grassroots community leaders as well as photographers, filmmakers, artists, writers, educators and researchers and many many more people who attended Pushing Boarders.
Most thankful to all the individuals who shared their insights and reflections, and particularly the voices of those who are often overlooked by skate media and mainstream journalism.
