San Leandro, CA – Skate Industry News: Grindland Red, Monk and the Birth of DIY

BY: Phil Anderson, Orbit Skates

Thrasher Mag recently released an amazing full length and in depth documentary deep diving the early days of the DIY skatepark movement by Michael Burnett and Matt Bublitz. The doc heavily underlines the dedication of the true original concrete trailblazers, Red and Monk. (Mark Scott and Mark Hubbard)  Through the eyes of the actual participants, we get a chance to relive the birth of the famous Burnside Skatepark, as well as two of the dominant skatepark builders in the world. This beautiful documentary takes us to never before seen places with rare footage, heart felt interviews, tear jerkers and the most epic footage from past and present events.

“I’d like to get it so it’d be like a national monument or something so it’d stay there forever. I’m probably dreaming there, but… Y’know, I just like skating and I like building. And this is the place to do it for me.” From Mark Scott’s lips to the skate gods’ ears.

Dedicated to the memory of Preston Maigetter, Jake Phelps, and Mark Hubbard, this doc provides compelling back stories to places world renown and coveted by skateboarders worldwide. An original and much needed piece for the community to witness. With commentary and appearances by Mark Scott, Mark Hubbard, Danyel Scott, Buddy Nichols, Sam Hitz, Peter Hewitt, Kaya Hubbard, Grindline the Band and many more, this is an absolute must watch for any skateboarder.

The release of this doc coincides with Thrasher Magazine’s milestone 500th issue. Looking forward to more issues and more docs like this!
