In this new episode of Jeff Grosso's Loveletters to skateboarding, the crew focused on the late Mark "Monk" Hubbard, one of the pioneers of DIY skateparks. Monk speaks humbly about sparking the DIY skatespot revolution, the effects he sees on a community when he revisits parks a few years later, riding energy waves, intergalactic multi-dimensional travel, and so much more. This one will get you sparked to make something. Keep an eye out for clips from Canadian DIY parks in Morley, Quebec City, Calgary, and Vancouver, too.
