New York is one of most photogenic cities in the world. Couple that with amazing and creative skateboarding and you will find it hard to beat the photos it will (and does!) produce. The problem is that there is no solid outlet for displaying these photos. You may get lucky to see a low-resolution version of one or two of them floating around some blogs, but is that sufficient? A lot of major European cities have their own mags to help represent their cities (Grey Magazine out of London, for example), so it's time that the world's city had its own. This would benefit many. For one, it would let outsiders into our world of skateboarding through one of the most chaotic cities. It would also help shine light on the local companies, filmmakers, photographers, and skaters that are pushing the boundaries with no mainstream support.
Surfing with local street boys at Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. We rented surf boards at the Surf Club Hotel http://surfclubbd.com located on the beach. It's also a great place to stay with clean rooms and helpful staff. They also support the Bangladeshi Surf Girls organization http://www.gofundme.com/thesurfgirls.
Hidden in the darkest back streets of major cities, you may find an urban phenomena - the Trick Meter. Skate by one late at night and you could find yourself locked into a do or die trick session.
