I got chills while writing this feature about the NYC Underground skate crew Public Housing skate team because I know their struggle. I started skating the boardwalks of Venice Beach around 1975. I had to endure mad grief from my family in South Central because I wanted to be different, so being called a “white boy” by my cousins was something I just had to deal with in order to be the skater I knew I wanted to be. When I see young kids from the grimy streets of NYC band together to create their own crew I am all about that. These youth have mad skills, and they prove it on the regular via their social media. The Public Housing Skate Team also have the raddest merch in the underground skate world right now. Today CVLT Nation wants to salute the realness by featuring some of our favorite Public Housing Skate Team clips…You can also peep some of their sold-out gear below….Good Looking out JENKEM for going where other skate mags aren’t – you put me up on this crew!
