Hero Installment No. 2

This one's not so specific to a single person but rather the evolution of skateboard art as a whole. I must admit, I do have 20 or so decks at my house that will never be skated. At times I struggle with the idea of the intended purpose verses the re-appropriation of said object. I mean it's a skateboard. It's sole purpose is to be skated. Not hung on a wall for me to stare at. But on the other hand, skateboarders by nature change the intended purpose of objects on a daily bases. That ledge was not put there for you to do fs crooks on. That handrail is not meant for you and your bs smiths. But we do it anyway.
