The Mecca of Skateboarding
The Wall Street Journal posted an interesting argument this morning, claiming that Portland is the crown jewel of skateboarding cities. First reaction by me? WTF!?
Despite the fact that 90% of the Skateboarding industry is located in Southern California, the Wall Street Journal claims that Portland is the city of skateboarding glory.
Why do I say that?
Because skateboarding was invented in Southern California. It has grown from there to be a national sport that rivals many other fringe sports, and to call it fringe is wrong...I'm sorry. Furthermore, 95% of skateboarding media is head quartered in San Francisco!
The Wall Street Journal might have a point, but I don't think they're correct. Check out The article here...lame.
