I have been an avid THRASHER Magazine reader since the very first issue! In 2022, I respect their online video presence and the way they create really rad video content. The other day, my daughter and I watched the moving movie “Grindland – Red, Monk and the Birth of DIY” and it almost left me in tears! I want to send love to all of the fallen soldiers in Skateboarding. If you check out any movie about skateboarding this year, this one should be it! It’s GRIND Time — Skate and Destroy!
“Grindland – Red, Monk and the Birth of DIY” is the story of Mark Scott and Mark Hubbard, two visionary skaters from the Pacific Northwest who, along with dedicated friends, kickstarted the modern DIY/concrete skatepark revolution. From the early days of Burnside to 2019’s Rip Ride Rally, this film explores the friendship, struggle, triumph and tragedy of true iconoclasts, hellbent on building the skateparks of their dreams!
