Who would have thought that it would be possible to pull off a skateboarding event outdoors in January? And we are not in Cali, we are here in the north and in the middle of nowhere. So how is it possible? How come we can skate outside in this time of the year? Well it is because of Global warming! Apparently it is real and we are all doomed! But don’t worry, at least no one can blame us for it! We skateboarders have a minimal ecological footprint, right? We skate instead of drive, we hang out outside instead of wasting electricity inside, we utilize public space and take the most of it. Take Prisma parking lot for instance, it is practically abandoned at the moment, but the light is always on there; they just waste electricity there! Good thing we showed up and utilized this space for a good cause. And this is how it went down through the lens of our friend Arturs Bogdanovičs.
